I just realized that June 1st is the date that Earthbound originally came out.

Since next week will be Earthbound's 14th anniversary, do any of you think that Nintendo will release it?

Actually, I do. There shouldn't be any reason why not? Also, it'll make up for today's lame update (All we got was the sub-par Clay Fighting game for the Genesis). I bet when Earthbound comes out, everyone will be downloading this game, I even imagine that people will start treated Earthbound as a religion (LOL!). It's my 3rd most anticapated title (Banjo-Kazooie is 2nd and Mega Man 7 is 1st), NOA would be crazy not to release a good game next week. Also if they do release Earthbound that day, NOA should give all Wii owners 800 Wii points so they'll spend it on Earthbound. In fact, I predict this will be the game that will knock Super Mario Bros. 3 from the top spot once and for all and Earthbound will remain standing their.

The only problem would be that so many people would be downloading it that we'd have to wait forever for the bandwidth to clear up.

Earthbound violates copyright laws. It's not going to happen this soon, and we are certainly not getting it before Japan.

Come on, friends,

Don't Stop Believing!
Ya I hope for sure it comes out next week but the sad thing is I spent all my points on Majora's Mask. It was worth it though.

Fixed.

Anyway, you really shouldn't expect Earthbound. Play it on an emulator, it's all but abandonware at this point. If it ever is released in North America, be pleasantly surprised, not entitled.

But if it somehow does I'll buy it immediately.

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...
Yet Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.

I never got into the game actually, so I'm really not excited. I thought Mother 3 was good though.

It is like the best RPG made by Nintendo for the SNES. Earthbound is actually the second of the series in Japan called Mother. Mother 1 was going to be released in the US for the NES but never made it overseas. There is a prototype of the English version some people bought and made reproduction cartridges of it. The third was supposed to be released in the US for the N64 named Earthbound 64. The game was completely canceled until the creator announced it was coming out on the GBA. Mother 1+2 was also released for the GBA in Japan. The website starmen.net has more info about this if you need any help. If you have ever played any Super Smash Bros. game. There is Ness (and Lucas. He was only in Brawl.) who is one of my favorite characters EVER.

One, it's not like Nintendo is prosecuting people for it. They even allow massive Mother fan projects to go on unchecked. Two, there are fewer legal problems in using an emulator than in trying to release it.
