Just to pass time before E3, does anyone else suspect that we may be seeing Mother 3 re-released or even a fourth Mother game sometime in the future?
Now, I know this is a different situation, but we just got Earthbound 0 in the form of Earthbound Beginnings. While it already had an unreleased English translation, it was still out of the left field. It was pretty big news that would've been more fit for the digital event, in my opinion. Perhaps it was released before to hype up for something in the digital event.
I don't think it would be too far-fetched if we see Mother 3 pop up in a few hours, in some form. It was teased in last year's presentation, so there is a reason to believe that they are looking into it, at least. It would not astonish me to see a Virtual Console release or even a remake of Mother 3 being shown off at the digital event.
But why would Earthbound Beginnings be used to hype up a re-release? Another possibility is that there is a new Mother on the way. This would be a real show-stopping shocker that Nintendo needs after Sony's presentation last night. Only time will tell if there will be anything Mother at the digital conference today.
Edit - I just found out that www.mother3.com redirects to the Nintendo homepage. This probably does not affect the chances of Mother 3 coming to the west, I just thought it was interesting.
