[RUMOR] Mother 3 is Not Being Localized, Rhythm Heaven Franchise Dead

Post by Winters Thief Zero on Sun Aug 20, 2017 7:16 pm

According to a report by Jonathan Holmes, an insider in the industry, Nintendo has no future plans with two of their franchises. While neither are particularly surprising, it's still sad news. According to Holmes, there are no plans to localize Mother 3 and release it outside of Japan, and there are no plans for a future Rhythm Heaven title. This is because Iwata was the only big advocate for these two titles, and with him gone, nobody at Nintendo has plans to continue with either series.

You never know what's going to happen, but the way it looks right now, under Nintendo's current administration, Mother 3 will never leave Japan and there will never be another Rhythm Heaven game. Iwata was a driving force behind the Rhythm Heaven series, and a consistent advocate for NoA to at least look at the possibility of Mother 3 finding a new audience in the United States and Europe. With him gone, there is no one at Nintendo pushing for either anymore.

I had a feeling Mother 3 was never being localized due to it being a waste of resources. As for Rhythm Heaven being done it likely has to do with poor sales in the West even if it feels like a FU to Iwata.

When asked in a Eurogamer interview Sakamoto states that the Rhythm Heaven series is not dead.


Go Nintendo wrote:A few days back, our friend Jonathan Holmes put together a feature stating inside information on the Rhythm Heaven series. According to his sources, the series was being shelved altogether, which made many fans quite angry. Now Nintendo has been asked about the report, and they deny it completely.
According to Nintendo's Yoshio Sakamoto, producer on multiple entries in the series, the franchise isn't dead.  In a Eurogamer interview, Sakamoto very clearly states that the franchise isn't dead, no questions about it. Nintendo doesn't usually give out straightforward answers like this, which certainly makes me feel like the future of the franchise shouldn't be worried about.

I belive Sakqmoto is telling the truth do to Nintendo coming out with an answer so quick. I also believe the no small games insider info is wrong to Snipperclips and Flip Wars.
