Tips for Buying EarthBound

October 26th, 2010 | EarthBound

Good ol’ Chewy has been diligently working on translating the official MOTHER 2 novel into English for the past couple months – if you’ve forgotten or didn’t know about it, check out her site here. Anyway, at last she’s gotten through the entire novel – which, coming from a fellow translator, is a really huge accomplishment, especially for something done in her spare time 😯

Right now only the first draft is done, and she says she wants to polish a lot of it up and figure out the best way to distribute it. She’s spoken with the novel’s author in the past, and while it doesn’t seem like an official release will be likely, we can always hope and pray.

In the meantime, if you want to read lots of excerpts from the translation check out her site. And if you’re an artist, you should definitely look into submitting stuff for her novel illustration project!

I was going to say what a shame we couldent print this out on fangamer or other websites because of obvious problems regarding copyrights, royalty payment, and the likes. With Chewy being able to contact the author and if we get lucky then… 🙂

I love the “Mission Accomplished” in the background. It seems unintentional that it’s there, even though it probably isn’t.

That is just an edited image of George Bush’s mission accomplished declaration over the Iraq War on an aircraft carrier back in 2003, so the Mission Accomplished in the background is probably intentional (as the mission to translate the book was accomplished anyway). See this image:

Thank you for the kind mention, Tomato 😀


Also, may I never translate anything of that magnitude ever again. Can you believe it’s been six years already since I first threw my fist in the air and declared, I’m doin’ this!

So does this mean the translation will really take another 9 years, ended only by Julian Assange of Wikileaks leaking it?
