Famitsu wants to hear what Earthbound fans want from the franchise

Probably more games

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Earthbound franchise, Famitsu is running a special anniversary survey. They're looking to hear about your favorite characters, memories, music, and more. There's also a question about what fans want to see from the Earthbound series. It's not clear as to whether Famitsu plans to simply publish the survey results, or present it to Earthbound's creator Shigesato Itoi for comment.

With Google Translate, you can make sense of most of the questions. Feel free to check out the survey here.

It is a little tone deaf to be asking fans what they want out of a franchise that has seemingly no future in terms of new entries according to them, aside from asking for... Merchandise only? Seems pretty lame if you ask me.

Unless Nintendo cleverly asked Famitsu to do this, therefore, avoiding the imminent fanboy meltdown.

How about Porky Minch playable in Smash.
