Rumor: Mother 3 to Finally Get Western Release

mother 3 02-04-16-1

We try to avoid reporting on “industry insiders” who post supposed leaks on social media (as they never let us vet their sources), however a recent Mother 3 localization rumor has gotten our attention.

We’ve learned that the third game in the series is actually getting a western release later this year, according to a report from Eurogamer. The outlet has stated they’ve confirmed the rumor, via sources close to Nintendo.

It kind of makes sense for Nintendo to finally release the threequel after all these years, considering they finally localized the original Earthbound late last year – roughly 26 years after its release in Japan.
