Nintendo is celebrating the Mother/EarthBound series in Smash, and we still have no Mother 3 localization

0

Event coming this week

Ah Mother 3. It feels like a few months can't go by without some insider report alleging that "Mother 3 will be localized soon!" followed by another report that claims "it will never be released because of the inappropriate content!" It's entirely possible that there's one or two important people blocking this, and when they move on or relent, one day we'll get a nonchalant release: who knows what Nintendo is really thinking.

Either way Nintendo loves Mother/EarthBound, that much is clear. It gets a lot of love in games like Super Smash Bros. (from the very beginning, as Ness was present in Smash 64), and it's getting even more love this week with a Smash Ultimate event centered around the series. It's being held in part for a "30 years of Mother" anniversary, with the event kicking off on July 26 and running through the weekend.

Oh word, the 30th anniversary? Mother 3 confirmed?!
