It's Mother Trilogy.

I can feel it.

Whether it'll come out of Japan is a whole other matter.

earthbound or mother 3 eshop release, or hopefully, maybe, some kind of remake or enhanced version of one or either games. In English. Please. ASAP!

eshop would be easy money but it could be an enhanced 3DS port similar to the DS version of Chrono Trigger (with changed-up UI and maybe a few bonus dungeons or something?) :x Dreaming sure is easy. But dreams... die... hard

if it's just an iOS release i'm going to have a breakdown.

The game revolves around a fictitious President of the United States named Michael Wilson. Using a suit of powered armor named Metal Wolf, he battles forces who have taken over his country in a coup d'état, including his arch nemesis, Vice President Richard Hawk.

Damn. That is ridiculously American. I don't understand why it's not here where we could play it while eating hamburgers and clapping :(

I'd love for the trilogy to be re-released, but by the wording of the (translated) tweet, my gut feeling is on a Mother 1 remake. Lord knows it could use it. It's an NES RPG, and it shows. Bringing it up to the level of Mother 2 and 3 would be incredible. Whatever it is, I'll put my full support to see that this gets Project Rainfall'd.

It's funny how he had to keep stressing that it's not Mother 4. Poor guy. I'm sure he gets asked that a lot. I remember him saying during an interview that he'd like to see someone else tackle Mother 4 and that he would like to play the finished product. Providing the writer was as witty and funny as Itoi, I wouldn't mind if Nintendo went in that direction. I wonder if Nintendo has ever brought up that possibility.

It's gotten to the point than anything Mother-related for the west would be good news. Even an Earthbound VC release would be awesome.

But I want to believe it's Mother Trilogy.

Mother trilogy for 3DS would get all my money, especially if they enhance them (Mother 1 in particular).

Why are people worried about an iOS release? Have many/any Nintendo franchises been released there?!

And for the love of fuck, bring it over to North America, NOA. I'm even okay with Europe at this point. Mother 3 needs to be available in English, officially.

Hasn't the lack of localization (and anything related to the Mother series in the west, really) been completely due to NCL, not NOA? I'm pretty sure even Reggie seemed interested in bringing more Earthbound goodness to the west but NCL makes the final decision.

If it's just VC releases or something I don't really care, I already own all the original games boxed (even EarthBound!).

If they're doing remakes that'd be pretty cool. I could get excited for that.

Dear Nintendo, YOU can release Earthbound on any system for $240 and I will gladly be there day one.

Seriously, Nintendo. I will give you $240 for ONE GAME. JUST GIVE IT TO ME!!!

Well, when NOA's lawyers went back to NCL and mentioned the costs associated with changing the game to make it compatible with our copyright laws, NCL probably did make a final decision.

I'll keep my eyes peeled on this development, but I'm not hoping for much.

My fiancee will kill a man if they announced a 3DS trilogy release and leave it in Japan. C'mon, NOA!

Before you get excited, it’s not Earthbound 4.

Why would I have gotten excited? Nintendo would have buried it in Japan anyway.

Not quite, NOA said that in order to bring EarthBound to the VC they needed to make changes to the music, but NCL had to sign off on making changes to the game and they didn't. But that was just the deal with bringing EarthBound to the Virtual Console. Mother 3 not making it stateside is on NOA

What the, I bought a boxed copy for $300 and sold my loose cartridge for $60. How much have prices gone up in the past few years?

P.S. I bought my loose cartridge for $10 around 10 years ago.

Cheapest "Buy It Now" copy at eBay right now for a loose cart is $190.

Yeah, it's gotten pretty crazy. I remember a couple of years ago you could find copies for $70-90

Hey Nintendo. How about you take a small hunk of money out of that gigantic pile and just pay the fucking licensing fees for the original music?

I would start a riot.

It would be like "Do the Right Thing" except no one would question the moral of the story because its obviously the right thing to do.
