Somehow, just somehow find a way to print more original SNES Earthbound games. The actual cart, boxes, everything so people who want the game now can get for a reasonable price and those charging and paying or have payed the ridiculous prices can go cry....in a fire.

Which turned out very well I think.

When I read that I was hoping he meant they are re-making or adjusting the first game for a re-release. It good but it could use some balance and mechanics changes. I'd love to see it in the same style as the other two.

You know if you're really that desperate you could just play the fan translation. It's quite good.

Mother 1 - 3 on the Eshop then please. It's not like it would cost them anything to do that. It's pure profit.

Don't they just need to translate the 3rd one?

just fucking change whatever is necessary to get Earthbound on VC, goddamn. The collectors will have their carts and the people that just want to play it without spending $200+ can do so.

I've had an original run version of Revenge of Shinobi, not really worth much, but just fun and notable for all the blatant copyright violations. It's on VC and XBLA now, but all the offending stuff has been removed over the years and spiderman is pink or whatever now.

Honestly, if they're building the games from the ground up again, this would be the best chance to see them overseas again wouldn't it?

I'm just being super hopeful though.

I've been on the Starman mailing list for years before the patch came out but heard the game doesn't work well due to timing issues (in the battle engine) related to imperfect emulation. That's why I never bothered :/

Give me brushed up versions of 1, 2, and 3. I don't care if that means redoing songs to keep Apple Corp. off their backs.

I would put down everything and play through all three in a row. And I'd buy whatever console I need to. Hopefully a 3DS, but even a WiiU if necessary.

It's not noticeable if you get the right emulator (or if you use a flash cart, I guess).

Depends on the emulator, but it can work fairly well.

Hmm, Earthbound rerelease on the VC isn't really exciting to me anymore. Good for potential other people though. I don't know why Itoi would be so involved in a simple music change for a rom dump so that make me excited.

That's what I always held out hope for, but seeing how we never even got Earthbound on VC... Mother 3 is probably never happening

I'll take whatever they have. Mother 3 is the only case (that I can think of) of waiting 10+ years for a sequel that was (arguably) better than the previous game.

Maybe he just thinks Itoi's really sexy. That wouldn't be desperation.

Well it would still kinda be but not in the same way.

At this point, even if it's something Japan exclusive I'm happy. I'm just glad to see the Mother series isn't forgotten. I'm thinking it'll probably be about a Mother 3 release on the 3DS VC.

Would be odd considering there's no other GBA games on VC (other than the ambassador games).

Also, it wouldn't take any actual "work", it would just be a romdump.

It has to be something else.

The Earthbound fanbase is very vocal, but also still pretty small. That's not to say it's small enough not to warrant a rerelease collection, or that it hasn't been long enough that Nintendo couldn't just give it "the old college try"... but you aren't going to see something on par with Op Rainfall if nothing is announced.
