Earthbound I can understand people whining about - it's already been translated, it was already released here once, though not in great quantities. Some people have nostalgia about it and want to experience it again, while others have heard for over a decade how good it is. But Mother 3 would take some effort to bring over. More than a VC release would ever be worth, honestly. And it's fanbase is smaller, too. Not to say I wouldn't appreciate it coming over (heck, I'd buy it day one), but I certainly wouldn't go begging for it.

You have a point. Oh well. Earthbound is good but it never really enthralled me like Mother 3 did. That game is just fantastic.

We. Finally. Are. Getting. It.

No more fanboy complains, no more Miiverse begging. This is historical! :p

I seriously can't wait to play this again. Of what I have played of this gem, I absolutely loved it. Which of course is why for a very long time here at NintendoLife my avatar was none other than Ness :3

On a final tangent about Mother 3, one thing I was not a big fan of was the overabundance of text. Although you do connect with these characters, tiny little details (facial expression, more "show don't tell", etc.) would have made this game so much better theming wise. In fact, if the game revolved around both Flint and Lucas together, it would have injected so much more emotion (perhaps with cutscenes where Flint helps Lucas deal with the grief of losing his mother and vice-versa).

That said, I cannot wait to play Earthbouhd for the first time :)

Gotta say, when I saw just the thread title I though it was going to be another one to complain, having not read or seen the Nintendo Direct... but this is amazing :o
I've watched playthroughs, and I'm very excited. I agree that it may be bit too overrated, but no one can say it's terrible...
Regardless, this was Nintendo hearing our pleas :D

I told you guys it would show up. I believed the whole time. I'm gonna be importing my VC games ASAP, paying the extra $1 to get the GamePad on there, and the April update is such an improvement it's not even funny.
I was NOT expecting so much good news, and you kids were complaining yesterday. NDs are pretty legit, huh? Just wait until E3. All these games will probably be on demo, and other awesome news will show up.

The best news this Nintendo direct had. I am so excited for this. Instant buy for me.

Second best. NOTHING beats Zelda. Xenoblade and Earthbound being re-released for $0.01 wouldn't be better than Zelda.

Eh, the only way I'm downloading this is if they make it available on the 3DS.... And for some reason, I doubt that will happen anytime soon.

I feel like it's legend status might go down a notch since people will actually be able to play it.

Earthbound is good.
I like Earthbound.
That said, I can't wait until several months from now, when all the people who have been whining about this game being released finally play it and realize that, yes, it's good, but no it's not the GREATEST GAME EVARZ. :D

I've already played a good amount of this game (never got around to finishing it) at a friend's house and I fell in love with it. Ever since, I had wished that I could play it again. It may not be the best game ever, but it definitely is an excellent game. The music and writing are just brilliant.

Yeah, people do overrate the game a bit imo, but again I think its deserved despite that. I think people are fine with that though. I mean, no one's mad about Last Story or Pandora's Tower despite being flawed games so it's fine.

I just thought of something, you think the other two games may come over if EarthBound sells well once it re-releases? :p

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.
