The Mother 3 Fan Translation Is Getting A Rewrite


The fan-translated version of Mother 3 is receiving a complete rewrite, Earthbound Central revealed today. You may recognize the website as the source of a wealth of Earthbound information, as well as its participation in the fan-translation effort for Mother 3.

“A few months back, we released the translation tools for Mother 3 so that other translators could translate the game into their native language,” site founder Tomato said in a post. “The tools could also allow fans to create script hacks or the like… and almost immediately after the tools were uploaded, CrabbyRhys began a quest to polish and rewrite the English script!”

You can find more screenshots of the rewrite—which is currently a work-in-progress—over at Earthbound Central. Editor CrabbyRhys says he is also open to feedback from fellow fans regarding the wording of certain things in the English script.
