Release Nintendo's Mother 3 A.K.A EarthBound 2 Worldwide!

116 Signatures Goal: 1,500

Nintendo's Mother series barely saw the light of day outside Japan. It is a turn-based battle RPG series not unlike Final Fantasy, created by the legendary Shigesato Itoi, a famous Japanese copywriter, essayist, lyricist, game designer, and actor. The first game in the series to be released outside Japan was the second game, which is known as EarthBound on the Super Nintendo. EarthBound wasn't released in Europe until 2013 on Wii U's Virtual Console. I, for one, enjoyed EarthBound and I want more from the series. Anyone who played the Super Smash Bros series would remember Mother characters who was playable in the games, namely Ness, who was the hero from EarthBound and has been in Super Smash Bros from the start, Lucas, the hero from Mother 3 and who appeared as a playable character in Super Smash Bros Brawl and as a DLC character in Super Smash Bros for Wii U and 3DS and Jeff, Ness's teammate in EarthBound who appeared as a Assist Trophy in Brawl. Mother 1 was released worldwide as EarthBound Beginnings on Wii U Virtual Console on 14th June 2015 and on 17th December 2015, Mother 3 has been released in Japan on Wii U Virtual Console. Nintendo, Mr Itoi, you gave us Mother 1. Clyde "Tomato" Mandelin and his team made a translation patch so you don't have to. Use it and give the whole Mother series a chance to receive the acclaim it truly deserves. It wouldn't be the first time a fan translation became official as this website would show.(http://legendsoflocalization.com/these-fan-transla...) Mother 3 was released in Japan only on April 20th 2006. We have been calling to Nintendo tio release Mother 3 for over 20 years. Let's make them hear us.

    Mother 3 is one of my favorite games. To play it on actual current gen hardware, in an official translation, I would be willing to buy a New 3DS and I know I'm not the only person who would. The EarthBound fanbase is growing and I definitely think there is a market for this game.
