Earthbound vs. Nintendo of America

I think I’ve made it blatantly clear that I love Earthbound. What I haven’t made clear is that I think it’s total and utter BS that other installments of the Earthbound series (aka Mother in Japan) haven’t been officially released in North America. I don’t know if it’s licensing issues, or if Nintendo of America flat out refuses to bring it over (kind of like Xenoblade and The Last Story, to name a few) but whatever the problem is, it sucks big fat hairy balls–if I may be blunt.

But I think I’ve found out what really happened. It includes Nintendo security teams, Reggie and a Nintendo logo.

For those of you that haven’t played Earthbound and plan on someday spending $140 on a copy of it, there really aren’t any spoilers below. The plot has been changed to reflect that of Earthbound’s struggle for localization. So, enjoy.
