EarthBound Preview in NP #70
Archive for 2010
On his Twitter account just a little while ago, series creator Shigesato Itoi posted this, which I’ve roughly translated into English.

There are two different sets this month, one is a bunch of mini-figures featuring Ness, Paula, Venus, and the two main Runaway Five guys: There are also a couple larger-sized normal figures that’ll be out later this month. They’re Ness, Paula, and Poo...Read More »

In any case, if you can get a hold of one, you’ll be a Level...Read More »

The starting bid is at around $1100 😯 Check out the page on Game Swag about the MOTHER 2 jacket here, it talks about its past and details. Not a whole lot is known about the jackets, so if anyone finds anything out (or b...Read More »
Actionfighter recently sent in scans of some EarthBound-related stuff in recent issues of the UK’s Official Nintendo Magazine: I really like stuff like this, so if you’ve come across any magazine stuff send it my way and I’ll post it here sometime 😀 ...Read More »
