I've never played any of the Mother/Earthbound games. I've been meaning to purchase Earthbound ever since its VC release, just haven't done it. Maybe I'll just start with this one since it's the first chronologically.
@cooliocuneo I love Mother 1 to bits, but it's very old fashioned in its RPG-ness, so if you don't react well to grinding and simplistic 8-bit presentation it might be better off to start with Earthbound after all. If you're up for some Famicom adventuring it's a great little game, though.
I was playing a game of Smash online as Lucas when I glanced at my computer to see this news being streamed. I frantically jumped away from the other players so I could see what Itoi was talking about and still keep myself in the game. As the reveal wrapped up, I found myself in a sudden death situation and won!
Not only did I win, but so did RPG fans and Mother/Earthbound fans. I'm so excited that this game was announced, and I'm really looking forward to playing it for the first time.
@Zero For fans of Earthbound and its quirky nature, I don't think Mother 1 is going to be too dated. It will probably feel very dated to pretty much everyone in the tech sense, but those that love the same things I love about Earthbound probably won't care. Mother 1 is old school, but it's got a lot of heart.
Hmmm.... I would definitely play an official release of Mother 3 but I don't think I'm a big enough Earthbound fan to go back to the OG, I like to play FF1 and Dragon Warrior but those bring back memories, not sure if I'd really want to play an NES-era RPG if you take away the nostalgia.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA IT'S FINALLY HAPPENING YOU GUYS!
