We told you it was coming, and we just wanted to give you a heads up: the Mother 3 fan translation project is complete!
"After more than 13 years of waiting, the sequel to EarthBound is now in English!" writes Tomato. "We tried our very best to make a worthy translation, and I think we came close to hitting that mark. With any luck, the translation will seem just as "strange, funny, and heartrending" as the original Japanese version."
You'll need a ROM of the game to use the translation patch, which means you should buy it and rip your own, of course. Not paying for stuff is bad, and as the folks behind the translation put it: "It’s not cool to brazenly pirate stuff! Itoi, Nintendo, HAL, and Brownie Brown worked hard on this game."
