Nintendo Launches New Miiverse Community For EarthBound Series Announcements


Nintendo has launched a new EarthBound community for Miiverse which will give users official updates on the revered series. The page, which is dubbed the Onett Times, will be used by Nintendo representatives to post news and information related to EarthBound. It’s not clear if Nintendo’s looking to localise Mother3, but it’s a possibility given the sales of EarthBound on the Wii U Virtual Console.


        1. You’re the idiot here for getting yourself trolled, honestly. He’s obviously, obviously joking, if anything I even find it a bit funny.

      1. Hey Ben. So sorry to tell you this, but I fucked your mother last week. She seems to really like it when I take a dump on her chest. You should try doing that some time.

        1. Uhh hello! pleese dont b meen 2 mother because i love her. and sumtimes mother makes me rub oil on her thys and lets mii spank her but she says it is ok because I say “is it football seeson yet?” because i love her.

          1. Uhh howdy! Benny! Don’t you dare discuss that publicly on the internet. I’ll be home within the hour from working this double shift so please stop using the internet and get yourself to bed before it gets to late.

            1. Uhh hello! Mother i am sory. i forgot i cant discus what goes on in passed ur bed room door because i love u. ok no moore internet 4 the nite mother! i promise because i love u. i’ll sea u soon!! <3 :)

              1. Uhh howdy! That’s my Benny. Remember don’t touch the phone for obvious reasons. Goodnight my angel. I have a meeting with your english tutor tomorrow and we’ll be doing it in my room. While the meeting is happening just stay in your bedroom and don’t come out for anything. Night Benny.

    1. Nope happening.
      Itoi said many times that he won’t be making another one. And if he ends up making another out of fanbase pressure, things won’t go well.

      1. HE won’t. Nintendo owns the franchise. They can do whatever they want with it. If anything, opening up this page just to discuss the series means they have plans for the brand, be it a Mother 3 localization or something else.

    1. Well, to be fair, I think it’s considered the weakest out of the three. I mean, it’s a really hard game, it’s old, clunky, dark, and not nearly as entertaining as the other two. It’s not BAD, mind, it’s just got a lot of flaws.

        1. True. Then there’s the fact that it really has not much going for it except that it was first. Earthbound had the honor of the only one being officially released, and Mother 3 had the really, really high-quality patch for it.

          1. we could of had the NES one but the super nintendo had a launch coming soon so they decided not to release it but they did have demos for it. like I said it would of made it to the US for the NES if we didn’t have the Super Nintendo coming out

      1. I played the first one and beat it. It can be very unforgiving and frustrating, but if you push through it, it’s a breathtaking game!

  1. hmmmm thats interesting bitch, remember when you almost didnt release xenoblade because you for some reason didnt think it would sell, or because that reggie is a piece of shit and would rather play carnival games. nice pick up and play, STFU BITCH, get out of here!!!!! also xenoblade WAS here in america only because GAMESTOP, seriously why wasnt it on amazon, like TLS and PT, even though the sales for the pre orders were number 1 for a while. exactly because gamestop saw the demand and not NINTENDO, so they made a deal for gamestop exclusive and it hurt the game sales because of how many people cant seem to find a copy from that limited to put this at end nintendo, mainly noa in general is a piece of shit!!!!! fuck you!!!!!! this this isnt… true, yes it is bitch stop white knighting nintendo, they are greedy fucks.

      1. dont know….. nintendos stupidity?? it took them how long to re release this game, it turns out their was no issues with bringing ti to vc. explain that one, and look it seems to be selling too. maybe they will release mother 1 and 3 now. took you long enough shitendo, if earthbound was on sony it would have been re released years ago.

        1. At least somebody on this goddamn site says something out of their fanboy goggles. I love Nintendo but their ways recently don’t please me that much.

    1. Im glad that im from europe. All the rainfall games were so easy to get, they were avalaible in every store that sells games. Sucks to be you i guess, why dont you go to Redtube and relax yourself, forget all the worries in the life smile, jackoff and relax. I recommend to select big tits from categories, they also have hentai there if you are into that kind of stuff (too wierd to me tbh). Have Fun!!!

    2. Are u serious go somewhere with your negativity this is a nintendo site i read the comments and all u do is cry and complain just hush buddy

      1. oh what or maybe do the best thing and not ride nintendo like a mindless retarded sheep, do you like seeing your favorite company turing into such garbage. no, then why dont you stop riding them until everything they do is just mario and zelda and carnival games…. wait, that right nintendo has gone shit for the many reason i and anybody else could state, facts too.

        1. No they arent shit, 3ds rules. Seriously go to Redtube, tune up your motorbike or car if you have either one. Take a break from video games, take it easy, chill out, you know what im sayin ? I know its hard to get girls to ride every time the joystick is happy but thats when the fist and redtube comes in handy. Forget the video games for a while and realize that few video games arent end of the world.

        2. Man, I loved Nintendo to death up to the GameCube. They “rose to the top” with the wii because they pandered to the casuals, turning their backs to us long time fans. Since then it’s not been that good, though I follow their stuff, it’s been pretty fucking bad. Good thing the 3DS is a nice console with nice games, but their consoles turned into garbage.

          1. The Wii sold a ton for Nintendo and the Gamecube kind of dwindled. They were just making business decisions. You can love Nintendo up until the Gamecube, but the fact remains that the Wii was their highest selling system of all time. They may make decisions in certain areas that you, YOU personally are disappointed in, but perhaps many others are pleased with their decisions. For every misstep they take, there’s a bunch of other great decisions being made. Everyone has an opinion, and while sure, you’ll probably write this off as fanboy garbage, the fact remains that I am pleased with a lot of Nintendo’s decisions thus far (not all of them though) and you can’t change that.

            1. Everybody has an opinion, sure, I was throwing mine there.

              But it also remains a fact the Wii sold more just because of wii sports and casual pandering and you’ll still defend that? E3 2008 is looking at you.

              1. no shit nintendrones make all nintendo fans look retarded because how much blind sheep they are, eat shit sheep anything for your corporation!!!!!

                1. well put iceazeama, fucking retarded the lot of em, to stupid to realize how pathetic they look when they keep posting shit like “nintendo won the console war”, as if, they never could and they never will, with their babysitting machine, IGNORING that it is called the wiiu. lol.

      1. yeah exactly and its pathetic because iwata himself isnt good either, that just tells you how bad reggie and noa is, if iwata has to help.

      1. hhmmm no, it seems like im using logic because the things im saying are actually facts!!!! so who got dropped on their head biased nintendo dick rider….. please understand that you now have std’s, maybe you wouldnt of got them if you….. didnt ride our overused gimmicky dick, i apologize.

        1. help is available and you shouldnt be embarrassed to want to better yourself. help is only a phone call away, truly.

          1. your right…… what kind of help, is it a phone call to get help for all the pathetic drones on life support. we must help them!!!!!!!

            1. Dude, you say you use “logic” with your posts, yet I don’t see any cited sources and you seriously sound like you’re 12 or something. There’s nothing wrong with being 12, but I don’t expect them to all be excellent writers with citations. I’m sorry, you really aren’t “proving anyone wrong” on here. You’re more of an annoying fly, all you do is pester people who really aren’t going to listen to you with such a radical opinion without any sources to back it up. If you’re going to fight Nintendo, maybe start with a softer opinion, for example, “I think Nintendo might’ve released the Wii U too early based on their lack of great Wii U titles currently”. Just slow down, take a deep breath and try not to be so angry man. Not everyone’s against you, but you certainly are not talking to the right crowd when trying to preach Nintendo hate. Just trying to help.

              1. its true of what i say, its blind fanboys that dont believe it, maybe observe idiot or is it that people are scared to find out what they will find.

                1. your wasting your finger tips with the retards, they wont listen untill all their COOL FRIENDS HAVE PS4 AND XBOXONES. then they will flip flop and start saying what the rest of the world is saying, nintendo is crap kiddie garbage, worthless and pitiful.

        1. they are so clever arent they, lol. with their old whitty remarks that they saw someone COOL post once on a site they think is cool.
          only thing cool around here is the wiiu, it is so fucking cold that no respected developer will touch it, lol.

  2. Who knows maybe this will encourage them to make New Earthbound game or full remake.

      1. I think he’s referring to the original, darker, longer game before it became Mother 3. I would like that too, but I’m happy with what we (well, Japan) got.

  3. If only other company’s had the knowledge that classic are profitable e could be seeing to other gems being released on the vc like mystical ninja, poki and roky, ogre battle 64, hubris heaven, turok and others they would be swimming in money uncle scrudge stile.

        1. The auction has been going on, if its not already over. It could take a while for a result, but yes, Atlus is being auctioned off.

                1. As long as Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem won’t be affected, I don’t mind who buys them. In other words, I’m fine with anything that isn’t Sony.

                  A lot of people might bitch if it happens, but if Nintendo buys Atlus, it would be highly benefitial for them; their exclusive is what they must rely on to sell the Wii U, and they’d get plenty with Atlus.

                  1. yeah it would be really good for nintendo and that will be big on exclusive software and less droughts. would rather have sony get them than microsoft, another rareware is going to happen then.

                    1. I honestly hope they buy Atlus JUST for the imense butthurt it’ll cause.

                    2. Microsoft won’t get Atlus. It’s illegal for an American company to purchase a Japanese company. It all boils down to Nintendo, SONY, and a few first-parties. Nintendo gets first say though, as it loaned Index some money to help cope with bankruptcy, which most other companies (SONY included) didn’t.

                2. the Wiiu does not require saving its the people that require saving. so many have been infected by hate. Live and let live.

                    1. yeah im hoping te see that. like bayonetta 2. its like bitches without nintendo there wouldnt even be bayonetta anymore!!!! im hoping they buy them so nintendo has less droughts and seeing pussies cry over it!!!!! looks like nintendo is making you buy the worlds finest vacuum cleaner, the wii u!!!!!

  4. I noticed it this morning. It was completely blank at the time but given the fact that its there Nintendo has to be planning some sort of announcement… I hope it’s good.

  5. ahhhhahahahah guess what im going to be a blogger here. for a while at least. nintendo dick riders expect a little less bias from now on. i guess they could just trust me.

    1. haha indeed. iceazeama, the dick riders were all hoping to be picked so that they could spew more biased crap about their beloved be of crap.
      probably thought they will get to send us away, becuase were trolls, lol.
      delete posts that dissagree with them and think everyone will worship them, pathetic.
      you were choosen over all the LOYAL fans, a troll over fans, lol.

    2. Pi Pika Pika Pikachu Pi ⚡
      (o.O uh-oh this is bad. I can’t let this happen although it would be kinda funny to see what happens ⚡ )

  6. Pi Pika Pikachu Pi Pika ⚡
    (I can’t wait to see what interesting news they have in store for us ⚡ )

    1. “Today we like to announce new title its called Mother 69. In this new installment you take a role of Mess a young boy who likes to watch Milf porn from redtube. Mother 69 will be avalaible this holiday season. Itoi is very excited about this, he always wanted to make hentai game and what a better way to do it than in Mother universe. Please Understand and Wii Undertand”-Iwata

  7. The WiiU has got games. Earth Bound is a Classic. Mother 4 is going to be great when it releases summer or fall next year. I am calling it now. 100 to 150 hour rpg with super smash brothers WiiU graphics, 1080P and 60 FPS.

        1. you do realize that accounts for 400+ hours of your life. the only one you get. playing 2 video games. im not judging you but maybe there are better things you could be doing.

      1. Everybody who doesn’t is not a gamer…

        Core gamers spends hundreds of hours a year, casual maybe 100-150 hours while non gamers barely 20 hours…

        1. What the fuck is wrong with you? Some people might adore games but not have the time to play as much as they like (because unlike you, we have priorities in real life).

          1. 1. What most of these call “priorities” are actually social things like going to parties or clubs etc etc which are NOT important so no it makes them invalid to be called “core” gamers…

            2. A big part of these people work alot because they choose to do so, only a small minority actually works alot because they have families to support so they hardly have the time to even think about games…

            3. Just because you adore something doesn’t make you a “core” gamer…

            1. These core gamers you speak of sound like lonely virgins in need of some human interaction, hang on, that’s just you!

              In fact, put me in with the non gamer crowd. I don’t want to be a pretentious fuckhead like you.

              1. Yes, because the internet is supposed to be all serious and boring like you…

                And I’m done with human interaction, nothing more than a waste of time like you once again…

                1. ‘And I’m done with human interaction, nothing more than a waste of time like you once again…’

                  Words of a hopeless virgin.

      1. Xenoblade chronicles was once never coming to regions outside japan. Thank me next year :).

        1. Itoi to Earthbound is like Sakurai to Smash Bros.
          Furthermore, as I’ve been posting in other topics, Mother 4 can’t happen because of Mother 3’s ending.

  8. It’s SO great to hear how good Earthbound is doing. I’ve waited FAR too many years for Earthbound to finally make a comeback (if you can call it that). I hope they localize both Mother 1 and 3 too. But fix the problems they both had. I wish they would make Mother 1 more like Earthbound (Mother 2). In the way that you can see enemies as they’re approaching. I HATE how you just go into random battles in Mother 1. I have the Earthbound Zero NES cartridge, so I know.


        1. I would love a CoD/Scooby Doo crossover…

          Shooting things while examining mysteries and escaping from ghosts…

  10. This certainly is a good sign, no doubt about that. Mother 3 would be so awesome and a new title for Wii U would blow minds. I mean, just think about what it would be like for a moment. There, mind blown.

    Off topic, but I spotted NFSMWU for 30 bucks today. It seems all the retailers have dropped the price on it, online too. I checked the eshop and it was still 60. I’m tempted to get it.

  11. a Mother 4 would be something HUGE for Wii U. It’s unlikely, but I hope it happens.
    Itoi doesn’t really need to be deeply involved with the game, but of course, he should be an advisor or supervisor

      1. The majority of the time it was stupid crap, like “personal information” or “profile comments”.

  12. You know when i was 5 Rare was owned by Nintendo. I have lots of memories towards Earthbound and i think its best Rare game ever, Grunt Kirkhope writed very epic story for this game. They made fine work with Banjo, but after they finished Earthbound all of the stuff went to work on Gta and part of the Rare magic was gone. Rare was great Italian video game company. What i dont get is how Nintendo managed to get rights to this ip back from Sony who bought Rare from Nintendo 9 years ago. Rares last game Super mario Galaxy for Gameboy Advance proved that Rare still had their magic, but when Sony bought them all of the good stuff including Sakurai went to work for Rockstar games. Its great to know that Nintendo has right to this ip, but did you know that Earthbound was published by SEGA in 1999 for mexican market?

    1. Most of these comments are about Ufos and what happened in roswell and what ecactly is area 51. Many people here believe that mans from the moon and andromeda crashed in roswell, the ship and bodies were tooked into area 51, where nazis finded out how to build an flyin bell which they used to escape to tatooine. Thats what the comments here are all about everyday. This site is masked as nintendo news sit to not make people suspicious.

  13. Am I the only one who actually prefers Mother 1 instead of EarthBound or Mother 3?

  14. Hmm, interesting.

    Hopefully there will be an official localisation project for the Virtual Console releases of Mother (EarthBound Zero) and Mother 3. I know of plenty that would absolutely welcome this news, especially those still bugging Reggie about it in America.

    Chances are it won’t be that, but still a nice thought to have in the pipe dream.

  15. I almost want to buy this even though I can’t cause I don’t have a wii u yet, just to give my dollar vote.
