I've been replaying Earthbound since people compare it to Mother 3 a lot and they really are quite different. As in, Earthbound feels a lot more like a Dragon Quest game, whereas Mother 3 is more unique by focusing more on the plot and narrative from the start, whereas EB's plot only starts picking up around halfway through. Which one do you guys prefer? I think I prefer Mother 3, but it's a difficult choice.

The first Mother game went through hell with its translation. Earthbound met with lukewarm reception in the west. Historically, the series is not popular, and spending the money to release a translation of a game released 10 years ago is not a viable business move.

That's the problem. It looks like a Mother game, but it's not "officially endorsed" by Nintendo. He plays games for the novelty of having an "authentic" experience, and not for fun.

There is no Mother "series" in the west, there's a singular game, Earthbound. A game that came with what, an eighty dollar pricetag and was completely unknown? Gee whiz, wonder why it didn't sell well.

And both games has different philosofies behind them, the big gap between those two also changed Itoi as a person, hence the difference in tone, setting and plot.

Both are amazing games, Earthbound has top notch gameplay for the time, Mother 3 is a really creative take on the turn system with the rhtyhm based combos.

For me, I prefer Mother 3 over Earthbound, but you can't really say one is better than the other

Earthbound also came out before the JRPG fever hit the west. Nintendo not translating Mother 3 was a huge blunder, and it's too late at this point, guess they just didn't want out gaijin-bucks.

I'd still buy it legit if they translated it.

>>253681063
Because it was a Gameboy Advance that came out in japan in 2006, while the DS was already 2 years old. The GBA was already on it's deathbed at that point. Earthbound sold like shit in NA and never was released in Europe until Wii U VC. It's a massive game to translate, far more effort than lets say Kirby. It's basic business why didn't release it here.


That said, they could now release it now on the Wii U but it be a lot of effort to translated the whole game for something that probably wouldn't sell all that much.
Or they could due a bundle for all the games in the series on the 3DS to celebrate the 25th anniversary .
>>
Literally nobody would care about this if they didn't decide to call it Mother 4.

>>253682739

Well, they did that joke in the E3 direct, and Earthbound was a massive hit in the VC, so there's a little ray of hope.

>>253682739
I think a good few would. I feel Nintendo could easily make a small bit of profit if they just translate it and gave it out on the eShop. That and Mother 1 since it's already done so it cost them nothing.
>>
the real question is, why don't they put the whole series in English on Wii U virtual console? they paid for a translation of Mother 1 that they never released, EarthBound's already there, and Mato said they can have his translation for free.
hell, make it a "Mother 1+2+3" deal where you buy all three together for $15 or something (EB is $10 as is). it would easily make back any costs on their end just from the fans the series already has

Nintendo would never let anyone else translate their work. And they just don't care I feel. They can easily make a small bit of profit by releasing each by itself for full cost and no one would really complain (I mean we finally got it right). But Nintendo just feel there's no point. One thing is that they mostly just focus on Japan and think of us as an afterthought.

The biggest problem I have with this fan game is them calling it Mother 4. That is just INCREDIBLY pretentious. And you play the Mother series for Itoi's brand of charm. Even if they try to copy it, it would either be too different, too safe, or just plain shit. There are other much better JRPGs that you could play. Hell, there are better games made in RPGmaker that you could play.

I'm also convinced that this is viral.

>b-but you can't viral a free game!

They still want the attention, page views, and download numbers so they can have an ego boost, and also justify future projects.
>>
>>253683836

Yeah, I'm sure pretty much the same thing has been made a bunch of times too, but the thought of playing everyone's levels is exciting. I also like how you can switch between classic and new (I wonder if that will change things as far as enemies though).

because the game has trannies and serious adult themes like religion and multiple family members dying, and it isn't going to be hugely profitable in america (according to nintendo), also when it was released the ds lite was about to come out so it would be silly to release a gba game when the gba was dead during that time in america.

all we can really hope for now is a virtual console release or some sort of "EARTHBOUND ULTIMATE COLLECTION" which probably wont happen

also SMBX, Zelda - Parallel Worlds, any Kirby, Pokemon, or Metroid fan games, Project M or any Smash mods, and Cognitive Dissonance/Heroes of Mother 3

for the last FUCKING TIME! Nintendo doesn't take down shit unless the game is profited with the original design. But does Nintendo doesn't really fucking care? They like people doing there own game to tribute to them! Same for fucking Sega and probably Capcom!

and who gives a shit if the name it "Mother 4"? Itoi doesn't want to do a Mother 4, he fucking done! Mother 3 was a variation of how somebody else's Mother game be like! He even technically said that everybody else can make their own!

Nintendo isn't Sqeenix! You hate the fangame because:
>muh sprite style (literally mother 2 and 3 has the same shit)
>muh story
>muh title
>it not being made by nintendo
then fuck off, who cares? Nintendo isn't gonna do shit!

Nintendo doesn't even own this IP. It belongs to Itoi.

Mother 4 looks good even if a bunch of the team members are giant douches.

And Cognitive Dissonance is already a fun completed mother fangame rpg. It's just not called mother 4 so no one cares.

Essentially this. I used to post on that forum since it was chill as fuck and even added people on AIM. After it was gone though it was pretty much "fuck it" from there. The forum doesn't even exist anymore either, and neither do all the retarded theories about how and when the game would be translated.

>>
>>253694159
>these guys to go through with their vision?

But it's not THEIR vision, though, and that's the problem.

If it was their vision, then great. Go nuts.
But it's not. It's Itoi's vision, as filtered through a bunch of fanboys with zero experience.

If they were making their own game, and billed it as a "Spiritual successor", we might actually have something, but the fact that they're actually calling it "Mother 4" shows that they have no idea about basic concepts like artistic integrity.

You know why Earthbound and Mother 3 are such amazing games?
Because the people making them didn't set out to make a good Mother game.
They set out to make a good game, and then tried to fit it into the Mother universe.

These guys have it exactly backwards. By simply giving it the name Mother 4, they're dedicated to making an "Authentic" Mother experience, as opposed to a good game.
It's going to be a "Heart Warming" story full of "Kooky" moments and "Crazy" enemies, and it's going to have really weird and catchy music and it's going to be done in a simplistic, high-saturation art style, and it's going to fail in every regard, save basic, surface-level appearance. Because those things won't be there to serve the purpose of the game, but because all the other Mother games had these things, so in order to be a Mother game, this one has to, too! Which is completely and utterly missing the point.
>>
>>253695126
I know they aren't owned, but I'm confident Alpha Dream could build upon M3's rhythmic battle system quite nicely.
>>
>>253691481
ayyy lmao

Seriously though. A lot of people have problems with it because it's called Mother 4. You can't call it that unless you have Itoi at the helm of it. Call it something else, and people would respond more positively towards it.
>>
>>253695790
>These guys have it exactly backwards. By simply giving it the name Mother 4, they're dedicated to making an "Authentic" Mother experience, as opposed to a good game.

I agree with this.

Having it as a spiritual successor/inspired by Mother works better than naming it Mother 4. As developers, their priority should be making the game as good as possible and making it stand out rather than riding on the coattails of the series that they're trying to emulate.

It has an involved story like m3 but with more of a m1 atmosphere and earthbound exploration and graphics.
It takes place between m1 and m2 and connects to m3.
The combat system doesn't have scrolling bars though and it's the kind of rpg where every character has a bar that fills up relative to their speed before they get their turn to attack.
