Something is up with the Mother series

Coming from Shigesato Itoi...

Since it’s now okay to blurt this out, here goes: the “MOTHER republication” thing I mentioned briefly before is making progress. It’s not “(MOTHER) 4″, though! This has to do with making “MOTHER” playable. I can’t give out any details just yet, but I do at least need to say that it isn’t 4.

Well now...talk about an interesting turn of events! Something is up with the franchise, but what could it be?

If he says it isn't Mother 4, then it probably is. lol

If he is telling the truth though, I hope they remake them and release them as a trilogy. I've never played the games before and would like to.

MOTHER 1, 2 + 3D would sound really nice.
What ever it is, i hope it will get in Europe the name MOTHER.
Sorry but i doesn't really like the name EarthBound...

But anyway, i hope that this time we will get a global release in all Nintendo Regions!

@TwistedN

I feel like he wouldn't have to be hush hush about it if it was just LOL VIRTUAL CONSOLE.

But I could see it being a 3D Classic for no reason.

Remake with full 3D models for the Wii U or 3DS, anyone?

3DS remakes would be delicious. And its about time, ive wanted to dip into the series for a while now but ive yet to get a chance to with actual carts and whatnot.

ANYTHING Mother-related by Itoi is awesome in my opinion. Now let's hope that it comes to the West (whatever it is).

Sounds like a Virtual Console re-release in order.

As for Mother 3, we can still dream...

Could... could it be? Being able to play Mother 3 legally in glorious English could come true?

In all honesty it's probably the Mother trilogy coming to Japanese Virtual Console, I mean they haven't even got it yet and it used to be a really popular franchise there. Don't mind me just eating 5,000 grains of salt on my life noodles so I don't get disappointed again.

I'm pleased to see that my assumption that Itoi didn't want to have anything to do with Mother was incorrect. The fact that they're looking at localizing stuff over here is quite exciting to say the least.

Let us all hope we will see a compilation for the 3DS. PLEASE.

What matters most is that will it be good, and will it actually leave Japan?

Guys, if we want this to come to NA and Europe, we need to start NOW. Operation Mr.SaturnFall. Remember, all of those petitions over at Starman came before the rise of social media and stuff. We should be trying everything. Heck, let's petition the President for it, simply because it'd get attention to our cause when the media posts a story about how a bunch of gamers are petitioning the president to urge Nintendo to release it in America.

Calm down, we don't even know what this is. For all we know it could be a new version of the giant Mr. Saturn plushies (I'd totally sign a petition for that).
