Saw this on Reddit. Apparently Emily Rogers (whose account is protected) tweeted this:



And reportedly, she had also tweeted--but since deleted--this:

One last thing before I vanish: Don't be surprised if Nintendo celebrates a game's 10th anniversary this year...Just some food for thought.

Mother 3, of course, came out in 2006 in Japan. So now with Earthbound rereleased on Virtual Console, and Mother 1 finally released here as Earthbound Beginnings, could Mother 3 finally be on the way?

Edit: Emily's since started to deny she meant anything by the tweet, but before then, several other people had chimed in all but confirming it

Makes sense really. Would be weird if they localised the first and didn't bother with the third.

Didn't they learn about the supposed new Paper Mario game too?

Either way, if it happens, I'd expect it at E3.

I believe.

Earthbound Beginnings was released so we'd eventually have the entire trilogy in the west.

After Beginnings released, I figured this would be a no-brainer. On that note, I should really play the series.

It would be, if it were a new localization.

But if they're going to do it, I wouldn't be opposed to another play through.

It feels like they've been building up to it with releasing Earthbound and Beginnings on VC and bringing Lucas back to Smash.

They localized Earthbound Beginnings over 20 years ago, but never released it.

It'd probably be good timing; got both Earthbound and Mother [1] onto Virtual Console within the past two years, and Mother-esque games are all the rage right now with indie hits like LISA and Undertale... why not capitalize on that?

Normally I'd agree, but the first game was already localized for the NES, it just never came out, much like Star Fox 2 on SNES. A test cartridge was eventually dumped to the internet as a ROM, and it took a few years after that but Nintendo finally released it on the Wii U Virtual Console

As crazy as it might sound to some: I wouldn't be surprised by this at all. They've been pushing the Mother franchise for a while now and of course it has to lead up to something.

No reason not to believe it. After getting 1 and 2, 3's likely to be on its way eventually.

The first was actually localized decades ago, when they were first supposed to release it.

Bill Trinen also hinted at it awhile ago.

It's clearly happening.

Hope they do something special and make it a physical trilogy release rather than just another eshop title. (I can dream, right?)

Digital-only VC release make sense now that digital distribution is a thing. Localization would still be a bitch but maybe Nintendo could buy the translated text off of Tomato and then they can make whatever changes they want before the re-release? Not sure how possible that would be since the translation was already skirting copyright protection. (then again they wouldn't buy his code, just the translated text)

Nintendo intentionally leaking all this so we think they're out of ammo for their next Direct, only to unveil the super megaton we've all been waiting for.

I would kill for a physical release of the Mother trilogy on 3DS. Bonus points if it includes a Mach Pizza air freshener.

I'm going to be disappointed when it has a dark filter like the other GBA VC releases.

But it's better than not having it at all.
