I'm just saying, if a full fledged campain from the Starmen.net guys didn't work (for localizing Nintendo games), nothing will.
Nah. I'm sure if Nintendo felt they could after all that campaigning, they would've published Mother 3 with a ton of fan fair. There were, however, two game breaking items in motion that prevented that from happening.
#1. Content like the Magipsys would easily set concerned ill-informed parents over the edge. That's the sort of press Nintendo cannot afford to have.
#2. Itoi was, if memory serves, unwilling to make design compromises to accommodate the former. Artistic integrity and all that.
Fire Emblem does not have anything like that. Sure sure, the pre GBA era had some squeak in it but that was a long time ago. Take the advantage and FLY with it. Otherwise, you're your own worst enemy.
