EarthBound 2

Hack of Mother 3

Description:

this is the complete Mother 3 translation but “westernized” as all instances of “Mother 3″ have been changed to “EarthBound 2″ like the title screen and end screen as well as some names being changed to more western common names such as Hinawa is now Amber and so on, basically the game has been modded to feel as though it got a proper western release

I don’t normally have a problem with Japanese names, and never even really considered the ones in Mother 3 to be much of a problem but now that this hack brought attention to them it occurred to me that, yeah, they were kind of jarring after all the other western-sounding names in the game… and never did sound quite right. It’s such an oddly-specific thing to ‘fix’ but the game finally did feel right to me. A surprise because while I’m not fond of Kumatora/Hinawa as a name I still figured I’d find it too hard to adjust to something else. But not really. It was fine and the chosen replacements worked for me. Kudos
