I have no clue. scratch
@Rukiafan I thought the name would have been EarthBound Zero in English, and Mother 3 would have been called EarthBound 2: Lost in New Pork. Razz
No 3DS eShop release?

And we're already hard at work on a review! Smile

@passioNATE Wii U only at the moment, which is a little surprising, but it's probably too early to rule out a 3DS release.
Awesome! Very Happy

The graphics are kinda dull, but its still fun! Very Happy
I don't know which one to pick first: EarthBound or this.
Earthbound is the better game, but the stories are connected so you might want to get Beginnings first.
