    The Mother situation really is a bizarre one. If EarthBound ends up being completely unchanged, then what exactly was holding them back in the first place? Did they just assume everyone's desire to have it was just hot air? What's even weirder is that the localisation of Mother does in fact exist and has done for a very long time; all they'd have to do is officially release it (and, again, I have no idea what was stopping them doing it on the NES before) so it wouldn't exactly be hard. Similarly, the fan translation of Mother 3 is excellent and they even added nice extras like Hard Mode and the previously hidden Memo function...why doesn't Nintendo just give those guys the credit they deserve and officially publish it? There would be very little extra work needed (taking out some of the more unsuitable curse words and renaming it EarthBound 2 (which is even alluded to in the original EarthBound) or EarthBound: [Subtitle] would probably take about thirty minutes). It just doesn't make any sense!

    I know this is off-topic but I really want a new Romance of the Three Kingdoms game. An entire console generation has almost been and gone without it... Please put one on PS4 KOEI.

    Just give me a European release for Suikoden II and I'll be happy. Played the shit out of the original (still fire it up from time to time in fact),and I seem to remember playing a demo for II but it either never made these shores or was so limited it was like rocking horse shit!!

    Heyyyy... Didn't I mention the desire for a Mother I/Mother III localization somewhere else on this site?... Give us Star Fox 2! The game is pretty much complete anyway, and is a very enjoyable experience to play through. It's a lost gem of video game history that needs to be brought to the attention of gamers.

    the original star fox got a cool nod to in Wario Ware Twisted. It had its own minigame where you play the first level of the game by steering the ship with the wii remote. But I could see why Nintendo pretends it doesn't exist though, I mean look at it, it's hideous!

    parasite eve 1. oh id love a European release of that game.

    I think there would be a lot less sales for a Fire emblem rerelease then Awakening because a lot of people bought awakening because it had baby/casual mode.

    No F-Zero?

    Was just rereleased not that long ago on the Wii U. Great game, I love it! Now F-Zero GX...

    Perhaps the reason Kojima is not interested in a re-release of Snatcher and Policenauts is because they are, quite frankly, rubbish. They suffer from terrible writing and rather tedious gameplay. That said, they should be released as they do provide glimpses of the Kojima to come and as such, they do have a place in gaming history. I would love a full blown remake of Snatcher with an extensive rewrite. It's attempt at philosophy were ruined by the take-over-the-world third act.

    I wouldn't call Snatcher rubbish. I would call it painful to play in many parts, though. Definitely agree about the third act, as well. Got so broad it was clearly jockeying for a sequel, but none ever came.

    Well, I would and did. It just came across as Myst with the backdrops of Akira. I wantd

    [continued because my computer messed up] I wanted to like it because the setting was intriguing but the poor man's Blade Runner storyline pissed me off. Oh, and from I heard, Sega would like to do a re-release of Panzer Dragoon Saga but they lost the development code so they would have to build the game from scratch. Now I know nothing about actual programming but is it possible that they could simply crack a retail copy to find the code?
