So I guess the Mother/Earthbound community has been talking about this for a while, but I didn't see the connection until this morning as I was cruising around the Game Watch Impress looking for news. LoZ: Spirit Tracks has been really hard to notice in general. Something about the game is just totally ignorable to me.

I guess I should say "was totally ignorable" because as a hardcore Mother 3 fan, I now feel a pressing need to find out everything I can about the game, with hopes that there are a few other Mother-shout outs therein. LoZ: Link's Awakening had more than a few Super Mario Bros references, and the Star Fox cameo embedded in unused files still present on the LoZ: Ocarina of Time ROM still gets me all giddy and silly. To think that the new Zelda game may have multiple Mother 3 references isn't totally crazy, is it?

How about it, Mother 3 fans? Does this shameless fan service get you excited about an otherwise predictable-looking new Zelda game?
