Mother 3 – Fan Translation Finished!

Ok this isn't how the game looks... but it should be how it looks!

Nemuiwanko here! I’m going to try to post a bit more since Micchi-senpai is on vacation. I don’t want Micchi-senpai’s page to dry up without updates o_o Recently I’ve been playing Mother 3 during my public transportation rides to school. It’s the sequel of Mother 2 (or to those who played the North American localization, Earthbound!) Earthbound itself is a fan favorite as it was one of those rare SNES RPGs that had a modern setting.

How often can you take the bus on an RPG?

Anyway, Mother 3 was released in Japan a few years back. But despite the fan following in the U.S. for Earthbound, it seemed like there was no way Mother 3 would ever hit the U.S. But a group of dedicated fans took it upon themselves to translate the game, and now the translation is available to be patched to a ROM for play. The translation was released awhile ago actually so I’m pretty late in posting this ^_^ I’ll be comparing this game and Earthbound when I finish up. But the translation looks great, and it feels like I’m playing the original since the graphics are the same o_o

I have to comment though that there has been a huge amount of translation projects popping out lately for Japanese games. It’s pretty impressive to see that people now have more access to Japanese games even if they aren’t proficient with the language. I don’t think I could have played through Mother 3 and have enough fun with it since I don’t want to be flipping a regular paper dictionary when I need to look up words x_x;;

    AHHH I see another earthbound fan XD;
    I must say that I really love Mother 3, it’s AWESOME!
    It captures the EB spirit really well with the quirky dialogue and humor.
    I’m already at the end of the game at around 25H of playing time, let’s just say I’ll enjoy my ride to the end X3

    Yay you’re a fan too! Good taste ^^ I’m almost at the end too at 25 hours now, but I have a lot to say when I finish. One big thing that Earthbound had that Mother 3 didn’t have though is a bigger world. When I first played Earthbound as a kid, traveling around to many different places and cities was a huge thing for me. But I do enjoy the fact that the dog companion is a permanent party member!

    heheheh, I agree that it was a bit sad that the Mother 3 world was so small though, I really missed the feeling of traveling around the world in EB.
    but on the other hand, Mother 3 got a deeper story to back the game up, not neccesairly making it better, but I believe that makes it stand on even ground with EB. Even so M3 went through alot of places like mountains, jungles, deserts, highways, beaches, graveyards, the bottom of the sea… and so on, but it just doesn’t feel like you are ever that far from home ^^;;
    So in my opinion EB has things that M3 lacks, but the same could be said the other way around also… but yeah, I do wish it would have lasted longer and taken us to more wacky places like EB XD
