i heard it was because he had a bad run with the series in the past.
something to do with him being responsible for the ad campaign for Earthbound and it failed, so he was responsible. and that was the reason he didnt like it.

it sounds stupid either way.

He never said that. We didn't get Mother 3 due to lack of perceived fan interest. Hell, Itoi seemed surprised when he found out that foriegners enjoyed earthbound.

Comments circulating around this site and the others. People claim that the reason Mother 3 wasn't localized was because Reggie hates Mother series as opposed to other stuffs like copyright, etc.

I'm pretty sure it has to be a joke, but others are taking it too seriously.

It's not that great honestly. I played it last year having heard all the hype about it since forever, and it's a cute game and has a neat environment and mood and great music, but the plot and characters are totally thin and the gameplay is nearly excruciating.

If this is true though that blows cause I think the other games at least deserve a release here.

It is a remake, not my fault you people think ports are remakes (but only on Nintendo systems)-Demondog666 on Kid Icarus Uprising

Are you referring to Earthbound or Mother 3, because either way I think you're being too harsh. But in case you're referring to Earthbound, give Mother 3 a chance, as it's unanimously regarded as the better game. Even people who didn't like Earthbound enjoyed Mother 3 a lot.
