More EarthBound announcements inbound?

Nintendo has added the “Onett Times,” an EarthBound announcement community, to its Miiverse social network on Wii U.

The Miiverse page is described as “your official source for the latest EarthBound news and information,” and mentions that “posting is restricted to Nintendo representatives,” but you’re free to add your own comments. Tom, the “deputy editor of the Onett Times,” has posted a welcome message here.

Additionally, a message from EarthBound creator Shigesato Itoi regarding the release of the original EarthBound on Wii U’s virtual console earlier this month has gone up on Nintendo’s official website.

Considering EarthBound has already launched on Wii U, and already has its own Miiverse page, is Nintendo planning something more for the EarthBound series? Maybe Mother 3?

Thanks, NeoGAF.

    The gears must be turning somewhere. There’s no way they’d do all of this over just the VC release of EarthBound. Here’s hoping for a huge surprise soon!

    Hm, Mother 3 localization?

  • Solomon_Kano

    Ohhhhhh shit!

  • gerald

    Mother 4 and Nintendo is right back in the console race.

    Probably just Mother 3 localization though. Still, great for all the people who never got to play the fan translation.

    .Itoi said that he wouldn’t do another Mother game again.

    However, he said that it’s completely fine if someone else were to do Mother 4

    I wonder if Nintendo just watched the final bossman and was like… You know what? Kyle is right. Earthbound is a big deal.

    Does there need to be a Mother 4? It’s like making Mona Lisa 2 and saying “we really needed another one”. Why? There’s Mother 1 to play for most people who only played 2 and 3, that one is also charming.

      Yeah I said the same thing a few months ago and got trashed for it.
