View Full Version : Earthbound on the Wii?

06-09-2008, 02:39 PM
I heard alot of lame rumors that Earthbound was either going to be downloadable on the Wii, or the team will actually remake the game.

Does anyone have official resources stating if this is true or not? I fail to find any, at all, actually.

And no. Those 'fan sites' are not official information, do not bother posting those.

There was a poll for which game they would like to see most released on VC, and Earthbound came in first.
Nintendo re-released the poll again, and Earthbound was once again in first. (Also MOTHER came in fourth I think.)

I'm all up for it on virtual console, but if they remade it...*o*
I'm sorry thats all the info i have.
Good luck~!

Aaah, so thats where that the hoopla came from. Thank you very much for the insight, Kiddo! If that poll can made during this year, then the remake may not come for a while.

I would love for Mother 3 to be downloable, since it gets frustrating to play the game while reading the translation. xD

An ESRB listing for the game has appeared on their official site. Usually, that means the game will be made, but there have been times when the ESRB has rated a game and it is yet to see the light of day.

Even so, Nintendo needs to put this out, if only to prove to them, once and for all, that there is a HUGE fanbase for it and to show them how FUCKING STUPID they were for not localizing Mother 3.

C'mon, they needed to make Mario Kart Eleventy-Billion: The Next Generation (joke). Why would they localize it?
