As of right now, all we have is the imported Japanese version and a not-entirely-legal fan translation of Mother 3. However, according to the latest MTV Multiplayer interview with the big man himself, Reggie is a “big fan” and has actually talked with Mr. Iwata about getting Mother 3 localized in the USA. No word if it will happen or not, but we at least know it is being talked about.
I’m a big “Mother” fan. I have to set the record straight on this topic, because I have seen all of the hate comments. I’m a big “Mother” fan. Huge “Mother” fan. I would love to see “Mother” localized in our market. In fact, I’ve talked to [Nintendo president] Mr. Iwata about it because this is a game he has some history with. [pauses] But it is not on our announcement schedule. [laughs]
