Tips for Buying EarthBound

December 5th, 2009 | MOTHER 3, Uncommon Knowledge

Brownie Brown, the developer for MOTHER 3, has a new DSiWare game in Japan called “Kappa Road”. And it looks like Ocho the octopus from MOTHER 3 makes a cameo in the title screen:

Except for the hat, it looks like it’s the same sprite with some possible small graphical touch-ups. If you look closely, you can also see a Pigmask helmet next to him:

You can see it all in this video, at about the 1:00 mark:

Thanks to Kyven and edward for the info and Portal-Kombat for spotting the mask!

The REAL question here is what is the Pig Mask doing in the bottom left corner of the screen?!

Holy crap you’re right, I thought that was just a shell because of bluriness 😯

Actually, this looks like a lot of fun! Most of the DSi stuff is pretty lame, but I’d download this if it comes sateside.

This looks like fun. Where are the kappas, though?

The kappa is that little green guy that you lead around everywhere.

Oh look, an enjoyable looking DSiware game. Guess what’s not being released in the US?

That most certainly is the exact same sprite. Here’s a bit of a sharper image:

It’s out today, people! It’s a really good game for $5.

Wow, I’m on my DSi right now, so I can’t see the video but I’d buy it just because of the EB cameos. maybeifbrowniebrowngotmoremoneyfromnorthamericatheyllreleasemother3 But that’s incredibly unlikely.
At leastwe got something though.

J-dog said on Jul. 4, 2011

I bought it for the cameos.
