Zero Punctuation Review of EarthBound
Popular Posts:None found
About a year or two ago, Itoi’s company set up an online music shop on his site. It was well-crafted and made to resemble a shop a lot like you might find in MOTHER 3; Itoi even went so far as to hire one of the Brownie Brown artists who worked on MOTHER 3 to do art for the music site.
The shop primarily sells jazz music, and you can check it out here.
It’s pretty nice, and if you look closely, you’ll even see a few MOTHER series items in the shop!
Just recently, a new “floor” was added to the online shop, this one specifically for Moonriders music. If you don’t know, Moonriders is the band Keiichi Suzuki is in, Keiichi Suzuki being one of the main music composers for the MOTHER series. You can see the new floor here.
And like last time, there are little MOTHER-related things scattered around the store. See what you can find!
Itoi and the Moonriders have done stuff in the past, most notably is this music video starring Shigesato Itoi. I guess this new store floor is related to Keiichi Suzuki’s recent visit to Itoi’s office too.
So even though there are no new MOTHER/EarthBound games on the horizon, it’s still nice to see stuff like this being made once in a while. Who knows, maybe eventually stuff like this will give Itoi that itch to make another game some year again 😛
