Nintendo still not bringing Mother 3 to America

Super Smash Bros. Brawl will feature another psychic character, this one named Lucas, from the Japan-only Game Boy Advance game Mother 3. The new character was announced by Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai; the included screens show Lucas using psychic powers similar to Ness, who appeared in Super Smash Bros. on the N64 and in Super Smash Bros. Melee on the GameCube.

Mother 3 was released in Japan last year; only its predecessor, Mother 2, was released in America, under the name Earthbound. So far, Sakurai has not commented on his website or elsewhere about the inclusion of Ness, the star of Mother 2, in the Wii version of Smash.

I'm sad.

Am I the only one who thought of Lucas from The Wizard?

He's so bad....

I'd rather see KUNG FU MAN from the NES game, KUNG FU. He'd whoop on Lucas with his ultimo-one-button combo.

This news must be torture for all the Mother fans still waiting for a Mother 3 translation to hit state side.

Dude, his name is Thomas.

...Actually, KUNG FU MAN sounds way cooler, let's stick with that.

On-topic: more characters is awesome. And if this raises the possibilities of getting Earthbound back over here, a la Fire Emblem in Melee, I'm totally down with ol' Lucas.

I suppose there is some distant possibility that Nintendo is "prepping" the world for Mother 3. But how retarded is that? We don't need prepping! Simply release Mother 1 on VC, then release Earthbound, then release Mother 3 a month later. Considering that this Lucas tard is riding on the success of Ness, a character we know, couldn't also Mother 3 ride on the success of Earthbound (and its eventual VC release?). I SAY YES.
