But, more than any other game, there is one Nintendo title that gamers in the West have been clamouring for.
Looking through Nintendo’s back catalogue there are plenty of critically acclaimed games that first time out missed millions and would be ripe for a Nintendo Switch re-release. Super Mario RPG is one such title that springs to mind, which was launched in Japan and America back in the 90s – but never made its way to Europe. While the original Sin & Punishment is another game which for years was only available in Japan, until it thankfully got a release in the West on the Wii Virtual Console
Mother 3 is arguably the Holy Grail of Nintendo games, the concluding chapter of the Mother trilogy and the follow-up to Mother 2 – which in the West was known as Eartbound.
It has gone on to gain a reputation as one of the best Nintendo games ever, and one of the best games of all-time.
But sadly it has never officially been released in the West, with those hoping to play an English-language version of it having to rely on a fan translation.
However, it has turned out that Nintendo allegedly did try to localise Mother 3 in English – but it never got released.
This news came courtesy of leaker Samus Hunter who on Twitter posted: “Nintendo tried to localize the game in English, and they likely have an official translation, but plan shifted and just like FE1, they haven’t published during the Wii U generation.
“Probably some thing happened that led to the cancellation of those plan”.
