EarthBound is a Club Nintendo Reward
A lot of people probably never noticed this, but very few of the items in EarthBound start with vowels. The reason being that this was an easy “fix” to the a/an/some problem, which would mostly be an issue when an item is found inside a gift box. But they screwed up and left some gift items with starting vowels.
Another such item is the rare Xterminator Spray. A full list of the items can be had here.
For the MOTHER 3 fan translation, I’m hoping we’ll be able to do things properly by adding a small hack to the game instead of using this lame cheating way that didn’t even work 100% for Nintendo’s localizers.
