Fils-Aime is a 'big Mother fan,' game still not coming out

Nintendo nerds all want Mother 3 to come out. I get that. Hell, even Nintendo boss Reggie Fils-Aime gets it -- he loves the game. Despite his love for the title, Reggie sets the record straight on this much-wanted game in a recent interview with Multiplayer.

So, getting right to it, here's the word on your chances of a new Mother game:

I’m a big “Mother” fan. Huge “Mother” fan. I would love to see “Mother” localized in our market. In fact, I’ve talked to [Nintendo president] Mr. Iwata about it because this is a game he has some history with. [pauses] But it is not on our announcement schedule. [laughs]

"Laughs?" This is no laughing matter, sirs. When Multiplayer asked how it was possible that this game is not on their release schedule, Reggie said that there are other games he likes that aren't on it. Crazy, right? And then gives a less fun reason for that:

Maybe I’m going to burst some people’s bubbles, but just because I’m the president of NOA doesn’t mean that every game that I love gets published in our territory. We run a business. And so, in order for a title to be published, the development, localization, launch, volume, all needs to make economic sense.

Finally, hats off to Totilo for asking my question: what about WiiWare or DSiWare? Fils-Aime makes it sound like a possiblity. That's it. So, in other words, we've learned nothing! Still, I feel pretty good about a download version. Still, I think we all want a physical copy.
