Some of you may be big fans of the Mother series, and as you know, Mother 3 is Japan-only besides a couple of incomplete fan translations.

A website dedicated to this series, Starmen.net, has people calling NoA all the time, requesting Earthbound for Virtual Console and Mother 3 in America.

One of these calls was posted on the website, and may have been proof that the game is coming to American shores later this year.

In a nutshell, the NoA representative on the line seemed slightly confused with the caller's questions, as if the answer should be well-known. The caller asked if Mother 3 could be translated and released in America, and the NoA rep replied with "Which one?"
After a short pause of bewilderment on both ends of the line, the NoA responded with this interesting statment,
"A version of Mother 3 is already planned for release in Q4 2008."
(Q4 meaning the fourth quarter of the year)

After saying this, however, the NoA rep said that she couldn't give out any more information.
Apparently someone spilled the beans....

Yes! I was tired of having to pause the game, read the translations, and start playing again. <<;; I wonder if they'll call it Earthbound 2?

Actually, if you have the rom file on your pc (which is legal if you own the physical game) you can download an english patch for it from Starmen.net and run it with an emulator!
