I may be wrong, but I remember reading something about Itoi holding significant rights to the entire franchise.

I'm reminded of this exchange...

Me: I would be remiss in not telling you that some of my writers would like to play another Advance Wars and they would someday like to play Mother 3 in America… [Note: Iwata writes something down] … Whenever I ask Reggie about Mother 3, he says, ‘ask Mr. Iwata.'"

Iwata: [in English]: "Just yesterday, before I left from Japan, I met with Mr. Itoi, who is the creator of the Earthbound series. [laughs]"

Me: "Oh, I know. Are we ever going to get it?"

Iwata: "And, yeah, accidentally we were discussing that there are huge fans from Western countries for the Mother series [laughs].

Me: "So, someday? Someday?" [I stand up to shake his hand]

Iwata: "[laughs] Thank you. Great to see you!"

Itoi said 3 was the last one he was making, and he wouldn't mind somebody else making a 4.

Your best bet with emulation is Mednafen with the sound buffer set really low, but it's still not as quick as real hardware. I've been wondering if the GBA support that byuu is adding to BSNES will solve this once and for all, though.

Itoi and Miyamoto on Mario's 25th anniversary and the "essence of Mario"
Iwata, Miyamoto and Itoi on Zelda's 25th anniversary and a whoooole lot of other crap
Iwata, Miyamoto and Itoi on the philosophy behind 3DS

and some non-Iwata Asks stuff

Itoi interviewing Iwata for Hobonichi (2007)
Translated Weekly Famitsu interview with Itoi/Iwata from 1997 (EB64!)

There are a bunch more untranslated ones on Hobonichi about all sorts of things, but most of them are really long and you can never guarantee that they're ever gonna cover the topics they're supposed to pertain to, hence why people are so hesitant to translate 'em.

I'd like to think that as long as he was in a sort of supervisory role and properly vetted the new writer(s), the series could get along fine without him. And could continue to, even if he opted to never return to the series again.

I mean, if Fire Emblem was killed off just because Shouzou Kaga opted out, that would have been a sad loss for those who love the series. Likewise, I'd love to see more Mother games, as long as they adhered to the quality standard set by the original trilogy.

if it does come out, its guaranteed to be worse than the originals.

i'm not being pessimistic, Earthbound is filled legal issues so even if it does get a released, some of the songs will need changes :(

Mother 2 has those legal issues, but Mother probably won't have much to worry about right?

Yeah, I'd hear some new themes and would be all "that's sorta strange", but then everything else that makes the game magic would still be there and I wouldn't care.

Worse was too strong of a word

objectively the remake might be better if its just the new game + extra content. Its just that the loss of some of the best songs might hurt game for me.

I got the Japanese GBA games (Mother 1 + 2, Mother 3), and they're the only reason I still have my DSLite lying around.

I've loved to play remade versions fit to the 3DS screen.

Mother 3 would look amazing on the 3DS LL screen.

It's two songs and an enemy name. That's it. And while they can make two new songs, they can also just replace the old ones with other songs that are already in the game. And changing "Dali's Clock" to "Crazed Clock" or something won't really hurt things.

Its possible we may get whatever they make given they haven't done anything with Earthbound since the GBA era and if its timed close enough to the next Smash Bros that might boost the sales potential.

This was always one of my questions. Ok, Mother 1 was fully translated, but never released (this is the famed dumped version on the net right?) So, why exactly hasn't Ninty released it on VC? What prevents it? Also, Earthbound Zero is the name established by the dumpers (team star force if I'm correct), can Nintendo even call it by that name? Would it be called Earthbound Classic or EB: The Beginning, etc?

If he said something is in work, there must be something that's more likely, right? He said no Mother 4, but maybe an eShop release of all episodes?

If it's true that the Earthbound hippie music is problematic, then yes, because that music was in Mother too.

They should just change the song. I think most people would be alright with some modified music if it means we actually get to play the games.

Honestly I don't know if the internet could handle the full localization of the entire Mother series.
It's been at the forefront of raging fan complaints for so many years, that people would need to find a new purpose in life. And Duke Nukem Forever is already out.... so where does that leave us!?

I don't want a 3DS re-release as they already have a GBA compilation of it. They don't need to put it out again just as another cash cow... do something different! :D
