Mother 3 Fan Translators Say They’ll Give Their Script To Nintendo For Free

Nintendo shocked us earlier this week when they announced that they would be localizing Mother 2 for North America as Earthbound. Now Clyde Mandelin, one of the members who help translate the Japanese Mother 3 game to English for fans is offering the English script to Nintendo for free. (3DS, Earthbound, Wii U)

Mother 3 is in my personal Top 5 games ever. It was very original and entertaining. I hope Nintendo jumps on the opportunity to use the fan translated version.

Whether it happens or not, that's pretty freaking awesome.

Now Nintendo has NO excuse! C'mon release the game officially now!
PopRocks359  +   906d ago
For once we agree. No excuse at all.
Donnieboi  +   906d ago
Yeah we do. I still love Nintendo's franchises, even when I don't agree with everything they do. I really wish Nintendo all the luck in the world, and i'm trying to see the cup as half-full now. Can't wait for E3, because Nintendo is up against a wall, and that is when Nintendo is at it's most dangerous.

I'm praying for a new Star Fox!


Yo is there a petition to get Nintendo's attention so that they accept this script for Mother 3/Earthbound in English? I'll sign in a heartbeat.

I could be wrong, but I think Nintendo's company policy wouldn't allow them to accept the script - even if it's being given to them for free.

I hear what your saying, but "rules are meant to be broken" (or so the cliche goes). It's their own policy (assuming such a policy even exists). They can change it if they want.

What about Mother 1? Why does no one want to play that one? What's so special about Mother 3?

Mother 3's story and music is great. It tackles a lot of tough subjects with a charm. One of my Top favorite games ever, and the only one to ever get me to feel bad for a character. Mother 1 is difficult and hard to get into <bold> IF </bold> you played 2 and 3 first.

Just what we need: give Nintendo even more SNES games they will never release.

nintendos too stubborn they wont do it

Maybe the script will magically end up on someones desk at Nintendo, if they can make money from it they just might do it, even if it means just putting it in the nintendo store.
