Yeah, I am. haha. I love the Mother series, but I don't think it necessarily needs two reps.


I disagree.

People continuously undermine Mother as a series because it doesn't release a new game yearly. It's quality over quantity. I feel like Mother deserves three reps, at least, but clearly not everyone agrees with me.

Does it need Lucas? Not particularly, but there's a lot of fun, unique character potential in the Mother series that gets overlooked in favor of three Fox's.

Let me start off with saying that if I could pick the rosters, there would be more Mother characters. The main cast alone is so diverse in potential move sets that I think any character, and I mean that literally, would be a great addition. However, proportionally to a 35 character roster, I think two is fine. I was surprised it got two in Brawl. But I totally agree with everything you said, and I'm not trying to undermine Mother. I'm in love with the series. I mean look at it, Poo has great potential, Duster, even Salsa or Teddy. All the characters are so different that yeah, Mother could have more reps. Maybe even should have more reps. Starfox does not need three. Fox and Falco was fine, Fox and Wolf would be fine. I would love nothing more than to see MORE Mother characters, but I don't think it will happen.

I would like to see a different type of Mother character represented, however. Ness and Duster. Ness and Jeff. You know?

This. I kind of want a non PSI user. Duster, even Salsa and he's a monkey. Ninten could be cool for those who want the complete trio. Porky could work. MM.

I don't see any reason for us to worry about Ness or Lucas getting in.

Their chance would be the same with or without a release of the game on the Japanese Virtual Console.

Now what I would like to see to see NOA do is to release the game on the Virtual Console. Unfortunately, they'll keep hiding behind the "legal issues" excuse and continue to prove that they hate Mother fans (or at least couldn't care less).


Considering how sue-happy American society is I highly doubt that's an excuse...

Ness will stay. Lucas is the one that could potentially go.

I understand that there are legal issues surrounding the game, but considering that this was the most highly requested game for the Virtual Console, it would have been nice if NOA would have put some effort towards getting the game on the Virtual Console instead of labeling the ESRB rating as a "mistake".

Heck, we were promised that the game was going to come out on the Virtual Console by Iwata himself and only after six and a half years did we finally get it on the Wii U in Japan with no signs of it coming out elsewhere.

Basically, Nintendo lied to us. They should have not said anything about Earthbound coming to the Virtual Console if they knew the legal issues it would take to bring the game to the Virtual Console.

I understand what you mean, getting our hopes up like that was just cruel. If they couldn't do it, don't even bother going through the process.

I still don't get SOPA but lets avoid getting into it, I'd hate to derail this topic. XD

Mainly music and I think some graphic similarities. They already had to do some changes to get the game released in North America.

I'd be a lot more forgiving of NOA if they didn't treat Mother fans like absolute dirt and Nintendo didn't try to build up the release of Earthbound on the Virtual Console, only for it to never happen outside of Japan.
