M2 vs. EarthBound Mega Update
There’s a glitch in MOTHER 3 that’s a neat thing to mess with once in a while.
Basically, if there’s a gift box sprite on the screen, if you go to the main menu or to the map menu and back, sometimes the gift box will turn into a status icon. It doesn’t work all the time and it seems to happen mostly with certain boxes. Plus I think it happens mostly (only?) when a box has been opened.
Here it is in action:
It happens in both the Japanese and English versions of the game. I never even knew this happened until after we released the translation patch, so when people started sending in bug reports about this glitch, Jeffman and I were both like, “WTF?” Eventually we figured out it happens in the original game, so it was no fault of ours. Whew!
Another place this often happens is with the gift box west of the run-down cafe, near the item storage guy. If anyone has spare time, see if you can find out where else this happens!
