He's been talking about a "Mother (series) revival" on twitter. He also keeps talking about Mother 2 (Earthbound) and talking about how he misses fighting Master Belch, and doing other things in that game. Speculation is that there's either a re-release of the series a la Mother 1 + 2 or a remake of Mother 1/2 in the works. If Nintendo was smart, they'd commission their big RPG guns (Monolith Soft) on a remake of Mother 2, which sold buckets in Japan.
They just finished Fantasy Life with Level-5 on the 3DS.
What I REALLY want is for them and Grezzo to create a brand-new RPG, collectively they created the Mana series, plus the founder of Grezzo and main creator, also created Chocobo and Moogle, true story!
The Nintendo Direct starts, while billions of fans are watching. A giant flying yoshi appears to the japanese sky and Iwata can be seen sitting on its head. After a backflip, he lands on the ND room, wearing nothing except Mario's trousers. His body makes every woman explode, while yelling "Iwata!. His fabulous hairs shine on the sun. He picks up a cocumber and a mango, and using a mysterious technique, he merges them. The fusion's product is Super Mario Universe. Then, Sakurai appears to announce Kid Icarus: Uprising 2, while a trailer for SSB4 also appears as a hologram. Then Iwata punches the earth and a ton of Wii u exclusives appear, among them a Zelda game, Half Life 3, Shenmue 4, Iwata Brothers U., GTA VI, Xenoblade 2, Mother 4, Metroid Prime 4 and Doneky Kong Country HD Collection. The Nintendo Direct ends with Iwata laughing while he announces PS4 and Xbox 3 as Wii U accessories.
I think now would be a good opportunity for Nintendo to atleast reveal a small trailer of Monolith's new game so they can start to build some anticipation. (not that there isn't any already, evidently)
Even if they just mention Takahashi, it'd be heaven.
Yeah.. but why would they continue adding/ selling Wii VC games on Wii U if theyre dumping them in Wii mode forever? That would make a lot of people angry, specially Wii U owners who never got the Wii. I dont think "We know you just bought Super Mario Bros through the WiiU's Wii Mode, but if you want it on your GamePad outside the Wii mode you have to pay $5 again" will sit well with anyone. Nintendo can't be that inept..
We should all be expecting some sort of transfer, and if there isnt then we complain until there is.
