You think if Earthbound hits a certain number of downloads, Nintendo will decide "Hey, let's finally give the dedicated fans what they want" and release the other two games on VC for Wii U or 3DS?

They wouldn't have to do anything extra to the games, the translation for Mother 1 was done by Nintendo itself, and the fan translation for Mother 3 was thought of to be a very good translation, even by people at Nintendo, so just use that.

Or is this yet another pipe dream for all the people who absolutely loved Earthbound?

Mother 1 appears to be rated higher than 2 and 3 in Japan according to some poll they did 2 years ago. If they wanted to, I think they would have at least released 1 in Japan. I don't see them releasing it anywhere... (They had the chance to do it during the famicom anniversary promotion)

But for 3 I have faith it might be released if they think EB was received well enough.

I really do hope that one day the entire Mother series gets localized. EarthBound finally being on VC is a small glimmer of hope.

Mother 1 is already fully translated for an NA release. They just never released it here due to it being at the end of the NES lifetime.

I've tried playing the first Mother a few times, but the ridiculously high amount of random encounters always puts me off before I get very far.

Mother 3 is a masterpiece, though. It's a perfect sequel to Earthbound, despite being a very different game.

I already mentioned that. It wasn't cancelled, but it wasn't released either.

MOther 1 didn't age as well as the other two games. Even the japanese fans know that.

Which is why I think it'd be better if Mother 1 got a remake (and localized). Sure, it'd be too similar to EarthBound that way, but at least the plot elements and areas are different.

Which is why people have made hacks to update it. Still if it were to ever come over here; I'd like to see it as a 3DS remake. Update the game with some fancy 3D like sprites (like they did for Mario and Luigi), and add in some new features. Would be really nice if they took out the random encounters and replaced them with the current standard.

I don't expect Mother 1 at all, even though I love it. The first issue is the age and that most people probably won't want to play it. Secondly will be the naming issues. They can't release it as Earthbound without confusing people, and they probably wouldn't use Earthbound Zero because that name change was done by people hacking the game and fixing the prototype.

I wouldn't be too surprised with Mother 3, but I don't really expect it. Would be cool, though.
