Against all odds, Nintendo decided to localize Mother, a title that never made it outside of Japan. The game was released on the Wii U eShop as Earthbound Beginnings. Just seeing Nintendo do that gave people hope that Mother 3 would end up getting the same treatment.
Now it seems the rumor scene has gotten a bit juicier as of today. Our good friend Emily Rogers sent out a couple tweets that seemed to point to a Mother 3 localization.
Emily also had another tweet that she has since deleted, but the internet managed to cache it before it was lost.
One last thing before I vanish: Don't be surprised if Nintendo celebrates a game's 10th anniversary this year...Just some food for thought.
Could Mother 3 actually see localization in 2016? Stranger things have happened and the time certainly seems right. On top of all that, Emily Rogers has proven time and time again that she has her ways of getting valid inside info! Let's keep our fingers crossed, but I'd say things are looking pretty plausible right now.
