Mother 3 On The Go

If you are trying to run the new fan-translated Mother 3 ROM on an EZFlash 3-in-1 Expansion Pak, do note that you’ll need to run it in NOR mode due to the larger file size. Otherwise you can actually run it on your PC with noGBA installed.

The ROM package that I downloaded came with contained a whole lot of stuff, the fan-translation patch, the original Japanese Mother 3 ROM, a copy of noGBA, and a patched copy of Mother 3. It’s pretty accommodating, and suits anyone wanting to run the game, regardless whether you have a GameBoy Advance or a Nintendo DS with the EZFlash 3-in-1 expansion pack.

In my case however, the GameBoy Micro is the way to go :). I know of several morons who have been talking negatively about the game despite not playing it previously (it was in Japanese after all), but hey, go play the first two games and then check out the fan-translated Mother 3. I bet you can’t find any other RPG like it.

    Try VBA-M instead of no$gba, it’s quite a lot better.
