The man behind the mysterious Earthbound JRPG series Itoi Shigesato has ruled out a sequel ever happening. Itoi responded to a fan and tweeted the word impossible. This most likely means the Earthbound series is permanently shelved much to the dismay of long time fans.
With the Wii U release, a new Earthbound instalment would probably have sold like hot cakes, but Nintendo fans can only dream now. Fans will have to settle for a replay through Virtual console's Earthbound 2 for the upteenth time and unfortunately with no further explanation from the creator, long time admirers will most definitely feel pretty sore right about now. Advice? Apply lots of cream.
