Tips for Buying EarthBound

June 5th, 2009 | EarthBound, Rumors

At E3, a MMO game called Kung Fu Hustle (apparently not connected to the movie?) was shown off. What’s interesting is that the developer supposedly said that EarthBound had some influence on the game’s creation.

What this means exactly is anyone’s guess. But if you’re interested, you can read more here.

Thanks to R7038XX and santiagoff for the tip!

I’m having a hard time seeing the influence. Anyone want to help me out?

I don’t see it either. Are they trying to say that it’s similar to EarthBound because of its “quirky and colorful” NPCs? That’s a very vague comparison.

Ooooh , I got mentioned! I’m so excited lol <3
@AbstractedThought: maybe the game has that “EarthBound” feel when you play it. Maybe just screens can’t tell us that much XD

The guy with the blue sweater and red pants kinda looks like Duster.

Sounds to me like it’s more the character dialog that’s supposed to be EB-influenced.

Also, how can that NOT be connected to the movie? Perhaps it’s a divergent storyline that doesn’t relate to the movie’s, but I definitely was reminded of the movie as I looked through the screens.

I see some dude beating up Abe Lincolns. I think that’s quirky enough to be compared to Earthbound.
