Fan compiles all three Mother games for Wii


1:30 PM on 03.18.2014



EarthBound (Mother 2 in Japan) holds a special place in the hearts of many, but despite the clamor for it, Nintendo has never officially released Mother or Mother 3 outside of Japan. Mother went through official localization but was put on indefinite hold, and insatiable fans translated Mother 3 to English themselves, releasing it in 2008 as a ROM hack.

All three English ROMs have been compiled by Mother fan Marcel Oliveira into one file for modded Wiis. In addition, he added a user interface that mimics an EarthBound battle sequence, allowing the user to choose which of the three titles to play by attacking it.

Emulating the unreleased Mother titles has always provided a bit of a moral grey area for many. Of course, downloading ROMs and modifying a Wii to play them come with their own legal and/or financial hazards. Proceed at your own risk.

Nintendo pokes fun at fans, jokes about Mother 3

Nintendo draws a lot of criticism for things it both does and doesn't do. Usually the venerable platform holder quietly takes it all on the chin, rather than responding to irate fans and hecklers. Not today, though. The Ninte...more

Stay cozy with these Mr. Saturn 'belly warmers'

Have you ever had a hankering for an official Mr. Saturn belly warmer? I have. It's called "buying a T-shirt with Mr. Saturn on it." The cool thing about that is your shirt doubles as a torso warmer as well. If you buy a long...more
