Nintendo Direct Announcements (4/19-4/26)

Post by Lugia2453 on Fri Apr 19, 2013 1:33 pm

This week's new poll is here, and it has to do with Wednesday's Nintendo Direct conference. Specifically, I want to know about the announcement that made you most excited. I'm personally most excited about the new Zelda game, because a Link to the Past sequel is a long time coming. What about you?

They're all awesome announcements, but I voted Earthbound, because we've been waiting for that ever since the Wii launched.

I gotta go for the EarthBound Virtual Console release, because I wasn't too hyped up because of anything (sorry), because I'm not such a fan of the Zelda series. Pikmin would be fun though and the new pink one was a cool announcement, but it's not as good as the classic Japan-only game that's now playable on the Wii U.

Umm...Earthbound isn't Japan only. They sold a few copies in the U.S., but they're pretty rare nowadays. You'll have to pay upwards of 100 dollars just to get a copy, which is out of most of our price ranges.

But... are they English? Or are they Japanese but sold in the US? If so I may be a little confused with Mother 3, which wasn't translated.

They are in English. However, you are correct that Mother 3 never got an English translation, and was never sold outside of Japan.

Hey now that we're talking about EarthBound, I found on a website the game for €42,95 (about $55 if I'm correct). It's for the PAL SNES and it's as good as new. Not sure if it's English or Japanese, as the picture shows a Japanese booklet.
I don't have a SNES but if it's really that rare, it could be a good deal right?

From my findings, Earthbound was never sold in the PAL region. Since the PAL and JAP regions have the same rounded cartridge shape (as opposed to the NTSC square shaped cartridges), and since the manual is in Japanese, I'd assume it is the Japanese version. The Japanese version is not nearly as rare, as it actually sold rather well over in Japan. You can grab one for about 30 bucks on ebay.

Also, it was called Mother 2 in Japan. So if it says EarthBound on it, and fits in PAL and Japanese SNES consoles, then it is fake.

Sorry about the confusion it actually said Mother 2 (EarthBound) in the title and on the description it says Mothe 2, so it's likely real. But thanks for the information.

To me it was Pikmin 3 because I've been waiting since 2008. So even if it isn't until August, I finally have a solid release date and I saw footage of Winged Pikmin.
