EarthBound and EarthBound Beginnings arrived on the Nintendo Switch Online service earlier this week, but one entry in the cult-hit RPG series we’re still hoping to see localised one day is the Game Boy Advance title, Mother 3.
With the return of the NES and SNES games, there’s talk once again about the possibility of a Mother 3 localisation. One person who is just as eager as fans to see the 2006 entry return is the game’s producer Shinichi Kameoka.
Speaking to Nintendo Everything, he said he would “also love to see Mother 3 released in the US and Europe” and “as a lover of games” he will “continue to wait for Mother 3’s release worldwide (in English)”.
It’s now been more than 15 years since this quirky game was released on the GBA, and in that time western fans of the series have had to fall back on a fan translation patch. Even the former Nintendo of America president Reggie jokes about its return.
Mother 3 last received a re-release exclusively on Japan’s Wii U eShop in 2016. Do you think we’ll ever see Mother 3 officially localised? Leave a comment down below.
