Mother 3

Post by Sonikku » Mon Jul 30, 2007 7:22 pm

<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mother_3" target="_blank">I thought this game was cancelled</a>

Apparently it was a Japan only release, though, as well as the same as what Earthbound 64 was supposed to be. So... I sailed the high seas of cyberspace with a black flag with a skull and crossbones and plundered it.

The game is actually pretty cool, but harder than Earthbound (Mother 2) in my opinion. I'll laugh if Lucas (The main character) ends up in Super Smash Bros Brawl though, since Ness made it into Melee. But boy, am I glad I found a complete translation guide for the game ^_^.

It even still has all that nonsense charm of Earthbound. You save at frogs. Enough said.

Well yeah, but I mean Lucas might be an additional Earthbound character. Having a Japanese only character in a global game is not unheard of (Perfect example = Roy was in SSBM, and his game (Fire Emblem 6) was Japan only). And Mother 3 is one of the top GBA games in Japan, so... Yeah.

I read up all about this game and it sounds awesome! too bad it wont be released to North america though:(, and also, wow! Sonikku you found the translated version?, last I heard some guy on starmen.net was translating mother 3 on an emulator, but I didn't realize it would take him such a short period of time! lol of all the info I read about the game I never heard about saving your game at a frog, that's awesome!:)

The game isn't translated yet, but I did find a FAQ that has all the dialogue from NPCs and story situations translated (I'm on my own for examining things and items and equipment and stats)

Indeed, but that's just a kid and unless people beat FE7 and put two and two together (Or play a translated FE6), then they wouldn't notice, and have no idea who Roy is. I'm sure people would think Lucas is in Earthbound and related to Ness unless they bother to look into things, which most people don't anyway.

Mother 3 sucks because there is no translation for the rom yet.
This is a block of text that can be added to posts you make. There is a 800 character limit

Actually, there is a guide that gives translated text of pretty much everything in the game, with the downside that you don't get to see the romanji version of the text (this makes it alot harder to follow because you can't catch things by memory to make it go faster)..
