Mother 3 To Be Re-Released On The Nintendo Wii U…But Only In Japan

The latest Nintendo Direct presentation aired online today and, as usual, announced some new additions to the video game world that have brought many gamers worldwide to tears…or close to it. During the presentation, Nintendo revealed that they plan on re-releasing the Japan-only Earthbound sequel Mother 3, this time on the Wii U through the Virtual Console. Much like that of the game’s original GameBoy Advance release, the re-release seems to be only coming out in Japan…for now, or so many Western fans of the series hope. This news is just one of many that have caused countless people to break down like children, crying into their hands, and praying to the only Gods they know that Mother 3 finally gets a Western release. How do I know this? Well, I’m one of the weeping fans of this much-loved series, and I would give anything to have this Japan-only game make it’s way to local shores. Now you’re probably a little confused if you were one of the many people around the world to have …

Mother 3’s Lucas Hits Super Smash Bros. For The Wii U and 3DS This June

Announced back in April thanks to the high demand for his return, Mother 3’s Lucas will once again return to the battlefield in Nintendo’s latest crossover fighting title Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U and the 3DS. Originally making his debut on the Wii as a part of the large character roster for Super Smash Bros. Brawl, it seemed as though Lucas was going to be left out of the latest iteration of Nintendo’s smash hit, no pun intended. Fans, once noticing his lack of presence in the new game, went wild demanding that Nintendo bring Lucas back for another round. Despite never being released outside of Japan, Mother 3 is a much-loved game the world over and it pains fans to see the star of the game not featured in the new roster. Well Nintendo announced only a few days ago that Lucas will be released as DLC for the new game worldwide on the 14th of June. In less than a week players from across the globe will be able to, once …

“Earthbound” Breaks Reality – Club Nintendo Labels Digital Copies “Sold Out”

This is something I’m not sure has ever happened before. We all know what “Earthbound” is right? It’s that ground-breaking adventure/RPG starring four children with psychic abilities who’re on a journey to defeat a reality-defying alien creature hell bent on swallowing up the world…Ness? Do you know Ness? He’s the hat-wearing, blue and yellow shirt-having, baseball bat swinging kid from that series of Nintendo fighting games “Super Smash Bros.”. Surely you know him. I’m going to assume that you know him. Well the game that he’s from, “Earthbound”, hasn’t been physically around for a very long time with remaining copies of the original Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) cartridges selling for way more than you can afford online. It did get a release on the GameBoy Advanced over in Japan but never here in the West and that made many fans of the cult classic very, very upset. Skip to 2013, the game finally gets a secondary Western release, this time for the Wii U through the Nintendo eShop. The world, once again, rejoices! Skip, again, to …

Super Smash Bros. For Wii U and 3DS – Lucas Announced As DLC Character

Can you believe it?! It’s actually happening! As a fan of Ness, “Earthbound” and everything the “Mother” series has to offer, the addition of Lucas to the “Super Smash Bros. For Wii U and 3DS” character roster has made me immeasurably excited! In fact, I can barely type this article because of how much I’m shaking right now. It’s the beginning of April and it doesn’t just mark the month of my birthday but a month that happens to feature another exciting Nintendo Direct Presentation which, at the time of writing this article, is currently underway. Kicking off the presentation was that of a section dedicated to “Super Smash Bros. For Wii U and 3DS”. As excited as people were to see that Mewtwo is definitely coming to the game sometimes soon, I was even more excited to hear that “Mother 3’s” protagonist Lucas will, once again, return to the battlefield. Set to be made available in two months time, sometime in June of this year, Lucas will come to us all as paid DLC …
