clickbaiting faggot

What did he say?

“The initial decision not to launch the game had happened before I joined the company, but certainly afterwards I had many conversations with Mr. Iwata about this game, about the fan passion, and certainly the perspective was the first game on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System had not sold all that well. Certainly as I’ve gone back to look at it, the marketing wasn’t great. I think it was marketed some bizarre way like ‘this game stinks’ or something like that. It really was not the best marketing activity behind the launch of a new game. Because it hadn’t sold well, because yes there’s a lot of time and financial investment in localizing this type of content, it just really wasn’t a priority. And then when it’s at the point where we’re putting all of our effort on Nintendo DS and games like Metroid Prime Hunters and Mario Kart for DS and Pokemon for DS, it really just was not a strong business priority. But boy, the game journalists had to ask me every single time.”

Still better than any tranny snoyshit

Just leak Mother 3 (Nintendo 64) already, we know the faggots behind the gigaleak have some of it and just wont share it

Reggie was then asked if it was ever possible to do something with Mother 3 and release the game in any form. It sounds like there was a good deal of consideration to a digital-only launch during the 3DS era. Based on Reggie’s comments, one possibility would have involved simply releasing the Japanese version on the North American and European stores without English localization.

“There was a serious conversation during the Nintendo 3DS days, and as we launched the Wii U, that we should look at making the game available digitally through our digital storefront, because at that point the production and distribution costs are the minimus. We had already had conversations about having a group of games that were not localized, that it was the pure Japanese game made available. And we did that for a number of titles. They did okay. Mr. Iwata and I had that conversation about Mother 3.

What ended up happening is that we launched the first Mother game called EarthBound Beginnings on the Wii U eShop. That’s a sense of the conversations that were happening and the thought process. And who knows? If Mr. Iwata had not passed away, if maybe the Wii U had done better in the marketplace, maybe the Mother 3 game would have made it at that point. So there were certainly conversations, but it would have needed to have been done the right way.”

Finally, Reggie reflected on the memorable moment from Nintendo’s E3 2014 video presentation in which it poked fun at requests for Mother 3 localization:

“It was a great way to recognize that certainly there was fan energy and fan support for this game. Certainly, it was a bit of a wink and a nod to that journalist community who was constantly asking me about the game, and having a little bit of fun in our video-based E3 presentation to throw a fireball at a journalist who had asked me just one too many times, ‘Reggie, what about Mother 3?'”

>Mother 3 wasn't localized because you didn't buy Wii Us!

>Earthbound sold like shit in the West
>Mother 3 got buried by the DS
>Mother 1 took less effort to put on VC

Why can't they use the Japanese version?

>if maybe the Wii U had done better in the marketplace, maybe the Mother 3 game would have made it at that point.
And yet another fucking reason to hate on that absolute fucking waste of money, space, and time that is the fucking PiiPoo.

Read tldr WiiU and Iwata dying killed that

Hey retards
Mother 3 is how they'll sell the GBA part of the Switch Online Expansion Pass
They'll time it so it releases a year after the expansion pass initially launched, so they can squeeze another year out of gullible retards

I don't understand. Who fucking cares? If that type of shit appeals to you, just download a rom with a fan translation patch. There's bound to be fucking one of those out there. What the fuck is it with this game.

Dumbest post on this board right now.

You really think they wouldn't.
Nintendo is clearly priming the GB Virtual Console to release within the next couple of months, and they'll need some big game to sucker people into getting another year.
They KNOW how big Mother 3 is, they only collaborated with a fucking Robot Chicken sketch mocking people who begged for it. It'll be their killer app for the second year of the Expansion Pass

>Virtual Console ended up flopping
l m a o
And you fags thought it was raking in cash. Nobody was buying shit other than mainline SNES and N64 games.

God you're so fucking stupid it is incredible.

>n-no u
Cope and seethe faggot.

im gonna screencap this when they announce the GB line up

It should've come just so people would accept it's not actually that good

who cares the fan translation is readily accessible and its quality might as well be official.

But it's not OFFICIAL! I need to give Nintendo money to have the real product!

Seriously though, anyone who actually cared about playing Mother 3 already played it 10 years ago when the translation patch came out.

Yes user, Nintendo are going to spend money on a GBA game for a subscription service that is going to sell itself because it has an autistic fanbase online.


They won't ever release it because of trannies.

The whole hot springs rape thing was more concerning.

Mother 3 can't come out to the west unless I'm in charge of localization. Even then monkey's paw says I will bundle it with a limited release Earthbound collection via 3D All-Stars.

You mean the scene that doesn't happen?

oh for gods sake grow up already and just play the fucking fan translation

This makes perfect sense...which is why they won't do it.

This at least confirms that Nintendo owns the right to Mother and it's not Itoi.

>growing up

jewtendo would wall a localized mother 3 behind a (((subscription service))), so i don't care whether or not it gets localized by them
the 14 year old fan translation is both free and uncensored anyway, but tendies are too mentally undeveloped to just play that

2008 was 4 years ago

Probably the most overrated game in existence. It's rarity is the only reason people hype it. That and Nintendo has no games.

Nintendo is only successful because it's thought of as a kid friendly company. They don't need to put out gay commie tranny propaganda. We get enough of that shit from woke Western companies.

>using japanese version
reminds me of when my younger brother and I played through it back in 2008 before the patch was released. We wandered through Tazmily aimlessly during Hinawa's funeral before looking up a guide. Good times

>pro trans
>features faggy shit like little boys going naked doing nasty stuff underwater with troons and making out with bearded merman for air
This shit is gayer than Captain Rainbow. It's no wonder Nintendo won't release it in the West. Their rep would be tarnished.

Nintendo didn't release it out of sheer spite and rage over the fact it was translated without Miyamoto-san's consent, the PC88 created an image in Japan of computer people being the absolute dregs of society, and it hasn't been shaken

Be honest. You are only pretending to care about mother and you have never actually played any of the games. All you did was watch some yt video about it.

>Releasing it not localized when a translation already existed

>And who knows? If Mr. Iwata had not passed away, if maybe the Wii U had done better in the marketplace, maybe the Mother 3 game would have made it at that point
Mr. Iwata is the reason Goldeneye didn't get released, and Iwata-era Nintendo has a track record of throwing bitchfits over trivial shit like PS2 buttons in Gamecube alpha builds, if Reggie is still lying/stalling about why Mother 3 isn't getting a release despite not even being at Ninty anymore, then we're never getting an official answer, OR release

The Wii U was too good for this world kys

You can't read Japanese
The game requires a lot of reading

Mother 3 isn't even that good anyway

It's the worst of the trilogy plus the gayest

Reminder that no one truly cares.

shut up

nintendo spites fanslations like that all the time. To be fair, most of the time they're usually bad anyway, tomato is an anomaly in the translating scene. He does nearly all of the work himself, the only other romhacker/fan translator I'd say matches up is Gideon Zhi (AKA aeon genesis, the guy who first translated cave story into english, first translated SMT1/2/if, cyber knight1/2, a FUCKTON of gundam games including some srw ones, rudra no hihou, and a bunch of others.

But yeah, nintendo will actively spite these people, other companies too. It's usually only indie companies that will hire on fan translators in an official capacity. That's how it worked for project lobotomy. People seem to not know that the game was entirely, 100% MTL from korean to english, which is about as bad as jap MTL, nearly unreadable, for YEARS. It's very recently that it's even been remotely playable, and saw the success it currently sees.
La mulana, also translated by aeon genesis.
I know tomato got hired for some translation gig in an official capacity but I don't remember what.
Nintendo and most other large companies seem to have some sort of issue with these people, I'll never get it.

>fan "translation"
Literal fanfic.

It was pretty faithful

so why the fuck did itoi add trannies to mother 3 again and make them such an important part of the story?
mother 1 was basically free of gay shit
mother 2 introduced tony the faggot
mother 3 has the magypsies, literal trannies

>spend money
They've been incredibly public about how many times they've come close to doing Mother 3's western release, there probably isn't a whole lot of translation work left for them to do.
Additionally, they translated fucking Mother 1 for the fucking Wii U virtual console. This is a far more sound decision than that was.

Itoi was always gay but afraid to make the games gay until later

>To be fair, most of the time they're usually bad anyway
>Nintendo and most other large companies seem to have some sort of issue with these people, I'll never get it.

>the man who put gamebreaking bugs into SMT1's law path and re-wrote characters because he hated lawfags
>the man who held onto SMT If... translation patch forever until another team started working on a patch and he suddenly release it out of nowhere
>anywhere near as good as Tomato

All of these questions and not one asked him about the character in blackface that was a clear mockery of him, and the actual reason he kept it from release. Even after he leaves Nintendo he keeps up appearances.

he knows what happened to gunpei yokoi. it's knowledge passed to any new president, he knows the yakuza will bust his ass if he speaks too much.

I meant the people who had actually proven themselves over years, like agp, or tomato, or that dude who translated the SNES goemon games.
>bugs in smt1's law path
lol what are you fucking smoking

ironically I get the feeling that the west would have less issues with it in 2006 than in the present
