For english-speakers, Lik-Sang will be releasing a special version which comes with Langenscheidt's yellow vinyl Japanese-English dictionary and a quick-reference Katakana-Hepburn romaaji chart for those tricky loanwords. Fansubbed roms are planned for illegal P2P distribution in Q4 06, and the official professionally localized version will come out as part of a Mother Series 3-pack downloadable only by Golden Fanboy Revolution subscribers. In 2009.

Those remixes are nothing compared to these songs that came with the original Famicom Mother. I'm especially keen on "Pollyanna."

why is this game for GBA and not DS? why do people make GBA games anymore?

s1ocki (slutsky), Wednesday, 1 March 2006 17:27 (twelve years ago) Permalink

why do people make GBA games anymore?

for the same reason they made GB/GBC games for 12 years, prolly. Established user base?

still, I'll probably be picking up a DS sometime this year(assuming I get this new job), so's I can play it.

better late than never, imo! i hope i'm not too busy playing with my wii to grab this one.

yeah, i said it. also, if they call it "NWii" for short, do you pronounce it like ennui? It might open a whole new avenue for puns if the big names start calling it the NWii (a la NGC, PSX, etc)

Yeah, I got it the day after it came out. I didn't
have any time to play it during Golden Week because my
mom came here, so I'm still working through it. It's
awesome. It's Mother 2 leveled up. They kept
everything that was awesome about Mother 2, and they
added a lot of new stuff. The story is much more
engrossing this time around.

Sadly, a huge number of fan translations never see the light of day, and I still don't actually think I've seen one for the Nintendo DS... I really, really want to see this happen. See also: Mother 1+2 NA release. Seriously, Nintendo is silly for not doing this. If I were Nintendo, I'd watch the fan translation closely and when it's done send Shigeru Miyamoto himself to their houses and offer to buy the translation for a pittance. Their fanboyism will take over, they'll sell it for maybe a 4- or 5-figure sum, and they can release it over here for virtually nothing.

Will M., Tuesday, 24 July 2007 14:48 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Err, by NDS I meant GBA.

more importantly when is earthbound going to show up on virtual console

El Tomboto, Tuesday, 24 July 2007 14:52 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Seriously! The kicker is that it will cost them like negative-zero dollars to release, and they'll see how many people are willing to pay for Earthbound. Urrrgh.

Will M., Tuesday, 24 July 2007 14:53 (eleven years ago) Permalink

I really really reeeeeeally want to play this :( It's like the only video game I'm interested in buying now

hey at least you'll be able to get a glorified bathroom scale for your Wii. good going Nintendo, you know what we really want.

webber, Thursday, 26 July 2007 06:37 (eleven years ago) Permalink

everyone on this thread is not a clear litmus test of nintendo's target audience. I want mother 3 too but we all know that what they're doing now will make them more money. Still, I think it'd make them a BIT of money to get translators to do Mother 3, surely? Is more money NOT more good or something?

Will M., Thursday, 26 July 2007 15:45 (eleven years ago) Permalink

I don't even care about mother 3, I barely touch the DS anymore as is, I just want Earthbound on the VC.

I guess Itoi was inspired in making this by a trilogy of novels called The Notebook/The Proof/The Third Lie.

This trilogy is very, very good, by the way – I read half of it last summer, and I reread the whole thing last week. I wish I knew anyone else (online or IRL) who has read this so I could compare mind meltedness notes. It feels kind of lonely having something so good to myself!

The entire trilogy is printed in one book, too, plus it goes fast. I finished it in a day and a half.

I bought that last week but haven't played it yet. I have seen it mentioned along side earthbound so much

Ina-Garten-Da-Vida (Stevie D(eux)), Wednesday, 11 November 2015 04:45 (three years ago) Permalink

It's really good! I feel like there's a lot of depth, but that's just a guess, I was advised to go into this game with as little info as possible + that was good advice.

Definitely Earthbound-influenced enough so that it could be a game in the series in some ways, but still has a lot of interesting touches + fun gameplay elements in addition to the familiar ~feelllzzz&vibbezzz~

Ina-Garten-Da-Vida (Stevie D(eux)), Wednesday, 11 November 2015 19:46 (three years ago) Permalink

Fair enough. That's what I liked about the PS2 & Dreamcast, as it seemed they were great for importing such rich veins of barely translated Japanese insanity into domestic consoles.

I've played Undertale twice now, and got two different endings. I don't know if I have it in me to play the "genocide" route.

One PS2 Japanese import I loved was Gregory Horror Show. The actual gameplay in itself was perhaps a little repetitive, but it didn't matter because it was fun to just hang around and spy on the crazy tenants going about their daily routines.

Duane Barry, Friday, 13 November 2015 01:18 (three years ago) Permalink

Doubtful, since it was a GBA game. Have you looked into the Raspberry Pi much? It’s $35 and you can build it out as an emulation box and fit literally every game for every console ever made up through the 16 bit era on a small SD card.
