also if this is in the wrong section please move it
Finally, Nintendo gives us Mother 1 (or Earthbound Zero). We now get what we (hardcore Mother fans) have wanted for years in North America! (Legally, anyway)
What are your thoughts?

I'm excited for it, I remember playing Earth Bound Zero being a game I played on my NES emulator a few years back. I had so much fun playing it, I'm glad I can now play it on the big screen, it'll be awesome.....all I need now is a Wii U.....

I don't own a Wii U, but this is good news all the same! I thought Earthbound Zero was pretty catchy, but Earthbound Beginnings is alright too. ^_^

Funnily enough, I've been playing Earthbound again recently. Never tried Zero...I wonder how its translation holds up compared to the official one?

They should be the same. Iirc, the original Earthbound was officially translated, but was never released. Some fan translation team acquired funds to get a copy of the final prototype(?) and released that as Earthbound Zero

There was a ROM for the localized version on the interwebs for the longest time under the name "Earthbound Zero" but other than that yeah I think it was exactly the same as this VC version they're releasing
