All you people who play MOTHER, thank you. I really appreciate it. People of Starmen.Net too… thank you very much. I hear all sorts of enjoyable rumors. SENTIMENTAL - Shigesato Itoi

Nice to see Itoi delivering that message to fans around the world. With Itoi being all sentimental, maybe it's time to really push for him to create another Mother title!

More like time to convince him to make Mother 1+2+3 for 3DS. That's all I need.

If it ever gets released in Europe, i hope it will released as Mother, i don't really like the name Earth Bound. (-_-)

I never played any of the Mother games. I would totally buy every single one.

I heard somewhere that one of the main reasons that Mother 3 has never come to American shores and Earthbound hasn't been rereleased despite all of the demand and the fact that they've built up such a mystique is because Nintendo is so worried about paying licensing for all of the sampling that Mother music does of other things, and Itoi's artistic integrity won't allow for edited versions.

I have to wonder: what if somebody offered to crowdfund the licensing or something?

I'm not sure Mother 3 uses sampled music. Mother 2, yes. But if I'm not mistaken, Mother3's music is original composition. The problem with Mother 3 was that it was a GBA game in 2006, and also that it has uncommon stuff in it, like magypsies, halucinogeneous mushrooms, male mermaid kissing everyone in your party, and also evoques subjects like death, animal cruelty, etc...
It's not an easy game to market, since it looks like a kids game. And it's not really.

^Pretty much this. Move on people. A mother game being made... the chances are pretty slim to none.
