I think that Nintendo should release an English remake of Mother 3 on the Switch as it would attract lots of fans of the series. If the other games in the series can get remade, why can't Mother 3?

It probably won't be remade. Just a VC port seems like the most likely outcome, that Emily person still hasn't back-pedalled on that when she claimed it was in the works. Though it's an amazing game in its current state so I don't think a remake is necessary.

Maybe if it fails at launch and needs little help.

You don't want nintendo to just use up one of their trump cards.

I'm wondering, if Mother 3 does come to switch in the west, would it be called Earthbound 2 since it is the 3rd Earthbound game with NES game being first followed by Earthbound on SNES and then this game?

Why would they remake Mother 3? Look at Undertale, it uses the same kind of graphics and it was a success. If anything, it showed there is demand for a game as it is.

And how would they remake it? With 3d graphics? It would lose the 2d charm that makes Mother... well, Mother. Not everything in this life needs to be remade.

I have a chronic lack of time, for everything.

Now playing: Okami HD, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

They could try releasing the completed N64 version of Mother 3, I'd buy that based on curiosity.

This is both a good and terrible idea.

I kinda wished there would be an Earthbound Trilogy for 3DS/Switch, where all 3 games were remade. I know it won't happen, but it would've been nice.

They don't even have to remake them - just the original trilogy on one cartridge would be enough, especially as a launch title for Switch. The disappointing thing about Mother 3 on Switch (if it happens) is that it likely won't appear on the Wii U, which is kind of annoying for those who have bought the other two games on that console.

This would be the stupidest thing ever. Not even that I would hate them doing this (assuming it isn't priced like a full priced game), but because of all the games that don't get a retail release by comparison.

@kkslider5552000 Is it really so stupid? People have been screaming for a Mother 3 release for years; what better way to please the fans than to release the trilogy on one cartridge? At a reduced price (of course), it could be a huge hit. Why would "all the games that don't get a retail release by comparison" be relevant? Maybe/probably I am misunderstanding you but I don't see the connection you seem to be referring to.

In a weird random event, there was a "Localize Mother 3" sign in the crowd of today's WWE Money in the Bank event.

If that doesnt add more fuel to the cause, I dunno what

Ha, i wonder if that's the same person who had a sign saying the same thing a few months back on RAW, or just a copycat. I always love when people throw up some totally random signs at events.

I'm now starting to think that Nintendo are keeping Pikmin 4 and Mother 3 for a rainy day, or in other words for when they have a drought. They don't to release them now as they have a release a month which Nintendo thinks is fine. Also, releasing them soon won't increase sales of Switch as production of the hardware is already bottlenecked as it is and buying a Switch is impossible in some countries.

It could be at least another year before we see them publicly. Besides, Nintendo don't have their act together with Virtual Console, that's likely not going to be ready before 2018.

@Luna_110 I really hate it when people try to claim that going from 2d to 3d would result in "losing charm." Look at games like Rayman 2, Super Mario 64, the 3d Zelda games, F-zero X, Punch Out. There all games that went from 2d to 3d and they still retain every bit of charm from the 2d days. Punch Out and Zelda arguably have much more then before. Good 2d looks really nice but stop acting as if 3d is automatically inferior no matter what. The best looking games I've played are in 3d.

mother 3 will never get a remake.
