Earthbound Creator Says There’s Something In The Works

earthbound

The creator of Earthbound, Shigesato Itoi, has revealed that some sort of Earthbound return is on the way. Itoi tried to make it perfectly clear that it is not Earthbound 4 which many were hoping. Speculation suggests that the team might be trying to get the Earthbound series on the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console. Here’s a number of Tweets that Itoi shared on Twitter.

“Since I’m allowed to drop it on you all now, I’ll just go ahead and say it. The “Mother re-release” I’d mentioned a bit before, we’re making progress on that.”

“It’s not 4! We’re trying to get Mother working again right now. I still can’t mention any details, but I have to make clear that this isn’t ‘4’!”

  1. I know this has nothing to do with the article but wasn’t Nintendo tvii getting released today? Anyone know how to dowload it?
    Or is it not out yet?

    1. It never came to America because of the music choice among some other reasons. If a remake is made with localization in mind, they would avoid including things that would negate the possibility of a localization so that we could play it too.

      And if not, import a Japanese 3DS and download the game from the eShop.

  2. Cool, Itoi. We should be honored that he is considering something like this. I am also cool with no Mother 4, since that’d be hard to create something along those lines.

      1. *info based on nothing*

        They both have two screens, and the first tho Mothers were for console, so I’d say there’s as big a probability for Wii U as for 3DS.

            1. Well, I thought Earthbound 0 would be a cool name, but then I remembered that that’s also the name of a fan localisation of MOTHER. MOTHER 0 sounds cool too.

  3. OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG!
    After all these years of the Eartbound series being totally ignored, ANY Earthbound news is FANTASTIC!! Though I really wish it would be a retail game that I can go to the store and purchase, I’m still H A P P Y !

  4. YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES !!!!!!!!!!!! PLS FOR THE 3DS ALL 3!!!! YES!!

  5. I want it on the Wii U, and I want it to be a retail game, not a dumb download. SO MANY games are being ruined by being download only.

  6. I hope something good comes of this, like never having to fork over $100-$200 just to play a legit copy of Earthbound.

    I’m on board for a Mother Collection as a 3DS game. $40 for a portable compilation of three cult classic RPGs would be a steal!

  7. I’m realy hoping with everything I’ve got that they release it in The USA at the very least. Fans have been screwed over too many times now….I don’t think I can handle another one.
