Yesterday, Nintendo surprised everyone when it announced it would be localising the original entry in the Fire Emblem series for the first time ever. Yes, that's right, Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light will be released on the Switch eShop this year on 4th December.

As happy as everyone is about this, unsurprisingly it's now got many Nintendo fans wondering what else could potentially be translated for western audiences. If you know Nintendo, you should already know the most requested localisation is the 2006 Game Boy Advance title Mother 3, starring Lucas - or, that character in Smash with the snake.

Mother/EarthBound fans haven't wasted any time over on social media platforms like Twitter and got Mother 3 trending right away. Here's a round-up of some of the reactions:

While there's no guarantee this will necessarily get the attention of Nintendo, if there was any time to be showing your support for a Mother 3 localisation, now might be it. In saying this, in February last year, it was suggested localisation of this game was allegedly cancelled due to its controversial aspects. Is this maybe why Nintendo hasn't released it here yet?

Although Mother 3 hasn't been officially translated, it has received a fan translation that can be played via other methods.

Now that the original Fire Emblem is on its way to the west, would you like to see Mother 3 follow? Are there any other games you think Nintendo should bring across from Japan? Tell us down in the comments.
