I only played an hour's worth of EarthBound on Snes9x, but this is bound (hurr) to excite some people.

I'd prefer a remake compilation of some kind, but at least getting EB on the eShop would be pretty good.

Getting EB2 over here is more important. If it could be as good as the fan translation, anyway.

Surprised MOTHER hasn't gotten much more attention in Japan than here; its 25th anniversary's coming up pretty soon, after all.  I'd still like to see that one come stateside, as well.
If she is indeed genetically mutated such that she has an eye in the back of her head, then I guess that she is genetically mutated and has an eye in the back of her head.

The 25th anniversary of Metroid didn't get any press either. Which is a sad thing.

I could shout until I'm blue for Nintendo to release it in America, but it probably won't happen. Rather, from the wording it makes me wonder if the first game (Mother, "EarthBound Zero") is getting a re-release. It deserves to be worked on so it's not as difficult, but I'd especially like to see its world with updated graphics. I believe the first game has one of the most beautiful game maps ever (more for how gigantic it is), and I'd love to explore that without bumping into dogs or crows every 10 seconds.

I don't see anything particularly unmarketable about the games (and still think whoever owns the Beatles wouldn't give a hoot about references to it in EB), perhaps it was just ahead of its time, with Nintendo too scared of a lack of sales to ever try that again.

I'd be all over remakes of the first two games on the level of the third, but it'd take more than nice graphics. Playable character rebalance, sprite animation, script expansion/retranslation... EB0 and EB are lacking in a lot of departments EB2 excels at. And the sound battles help to break up the monotony of a typical JRPG. But that would require EB0 and EB to have a whole lot more music too, and I'm not sure I'd say it'd be a good idea to recycle the same battle gimmick for all three games.

They even have the original Nintendo Power Player's Guide on the official website! And the game is completely 100% uncensored! At least judging by the ESRB rating, which has been raised up to T for Teen and now includes mentions of "Mild Blood" and and "Crude Humor". I even hear there aren't any changes for copyright infringement!
