It's Finally Time To Play Earthbound 2
October 17, 2008
The prophecy has been fulfilled! The translation team that has been working so hard on translating Mother 3 / Earthbound 2 from Japanese into English over the last two years has finally finished their task. The English translation patch is now available. Thanks to everyone that made this project a success. Your efforts are extremely appreciated!
After more than 13 years of waiting, the sequel to EarthBound is now in English! I hope fans of the series, new and old, will find MOTHER 3 to be just as unique and interesting as its predecessors. 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.
MOTHER 3 is filled with secrets and rarities. Characters say new things after even the tiniest of events. Take your time to explore the game's intriguing world - you won't be disappointed! And when you're done, be sure to come back here, because we've prepared many more goodies for fans to check out and enjoy post-game!
Enjoy your time in the world of MOTHER 3!
I've also said a few things about this topic over at Kombo today. Somehow I think I know what I'll be doing this weekend. I'm coming for you, Cattlesnake!
