Rose Colored Gaming recently unveiled a beautiful Earthbound Zero reproduction NES cart
, complete with a slick plastic case and custom cover art. The cart includes an English-translated ROM of Japanese Nintendo RPG and cult classic Mother
never came to the United States, though Mother 2
was released as Earthbound
on SNES in North America, and will see a Wii U Virtual Console port this year
. The game that followed in the series, Mother 3
for Game Boy Advance, also never saw official North American localization, though fan translators of the game offered Nintendo
to use their work free of charge for further Virtual Console localization purposes.
As for Rose Colored Gaming's gorgeous Earthbound Zero
reproduction cart, there's no price listed yet on its store as it's working to produce "as many of these as possible for as long as possible." We're just saying, this collectible item would be a great gift for a sorrowful Joystiq editor that has lost hope that any future iterations of the series will come to life in a language they understand.
