GamePro recently posted a video that briefly covers EarthBound and the other games in the series:

Interesting to compare that GamePro video to the original GamePro review of EarthBound here!

So here’s a little poll: if an EarthBound compilation pack were ever released in English, would you buy it on Day 1? Click here to vote!

“Guy-guess” Arghhhhhhh! >_<

James said on Jan. 22, 2011

KingDarian, that’s the official English pronunciation. I’m sorry you don’t like it, but he wasn’t wrong.

I like the way they did the style of the review. Interviewing people about the game was a great idea. I would definetly buy a DS release, even if I were poor.

Acedio said on Jan. 22, 2011

It’s definitely a pipe dream, but I can’t help but hope for a trilogy re-release πŸ™‚ I agree with the last guy: I’d pay any price for that kind of game.

Andy said on Jan. 22, 2011

Any one who wouldn’t buy it at all sucks. I would so but it on Day 1.

Anonymous said on Jan. 22, 2011

I would kill.
*I WOULD KILL*

YAOMTC said on Jan. 22, 2011

“My favorite character was Poo, probably ’cause I could name him Poo, or Butts…” Just like you could in many RPGs from that time… With any of the characters… ΰ² _ΰ² 

Onion said on Jan. 22, 2011

If a compilation of the Mother games (or any single game in the series!) were released in the US I would definitely buy a copy and probably multiples.

iwata kicks you know what said on Jan. 22, 2011

A complication would probably hit Japan first, then (maybe) the USA, like M1+2. Probably because NCL is where all the programing and creation of games probably take place. I don’t know of NOA making a complication of any video games, just NCL. Can anyone name an instance where NOA actually did so?

Shyamalan said on Jan. 22, 2011

The one, the ONLY: GAAAAAAAMEBRO!

watercat8 said on Jan. 22, 2011

I like how back in the 90’s they didn’t care enough to get past Onett and now that it is a game with a cult fandom they treat the game with respect. B)

PKNuMan said on Jan. 22, 2011

I know i’d buy it on day.
Mostly to support the series, even if I’ve played a million times!

Droginator said on Jan. 22, 2011

I’d get it, first day! Playing EarthBound and the other games on an actual console/handheld would be amazing.

EarthBoundanator said on Jan. 22, 2011

why do people get all psycho when they tell nintendo how badly they want a earthbound game released in NA? seriously your freaking out reggie

Starstormer said on Jan. 22, 2011

I’d buy it on day one since based on the results the game would probably be sold out in a few days.

Milla the Icecarl said on Jan. 23, 2011

I would kill. πŸ˜›

GhostSonic said on Jan. 23, 2011

@EarthBoundanator
Reggie can take it bro, his body is ready.

Yes, I’d definitely buy a compilation on day one.

Anonymous said on Jan. 23, 2011

Okay, who the heck voted no on that poll? Is Reggie amoung us in these dark days were there is no earthbound.

ENGLISH EARTHBOUND?!?!?!?!?!?

MiracleMagypsy said on Jan. 23, 2011

It may seem kind of dark, but…..
I might also consider murder πŸ˜›

Cubivore10 said on Jan. 23, 2011

I would not. Not worth the money. Why would I buy something I already have?

iwata kicks you know what said on Jan. 23, 2011

Cubivore10:
Because otherwise we wouldn’t get a M1+2+3 released in the USA. They won’t localize it when people say they wouldn’t buy it.

Anon said on Jan. 23, 2011

And also beacause it’s not possible to have that without using ROMS. If you call that “something I already have”, you don’t need to buy any games.
And if I treat you wrong and you have a japanese version of Mother 1 and 3, you don’t own them in english, which would not go with the fact that you “already have” it.

Sander P said on Jan. 23, 2011

Well you could say he already stole them…..
Idk, we technically can’t say anything because we don’t know the person and his whereabouts.

I on the other hand would buy it instantly, but I assume even if something like this gets a release it won’t be released in Europe.
Just a guess out of experience.

Frank said on Jan. 23, 2011

I would definitely buy it if it released on a VC, i would pre-order the day it would be announced lol. I wish i could play 3 and 1, i already have 2 in my NES collection luckily enough.

What'sHerFace said on Jan. 23, 2011

Yes with a capital Y.
Or…You know what, just capitalize the whole word. YES.

My intent to buy such a thing is so much so that I would capitalize my affirmation.

astrangeoneEB said on Jan. 23, 2011

I would buy it, but only if it were on the DS (probably just a pipe dream now), but seriously, not investing in another console for the gaming privilege. πŸ˜€

Floridian said on Jan. 24, 2011

I think that they made this new review better is because they finally made it past Onett.

MugiwaraYonkou said on Jan. 24, 2011

Why there isn’t an option to “IΔΊl buy it on a pre-sale”?

Crav said on Jan. 24, 2011

To be fair, I’ll bet the people that did this reveiw didn’t even work there back then. It’s a completely different generation.

Dylan said on Jan. 24, 2011

i would kill for it possibly!

future4 said on Jan. 26, 2011

That’d be nice considering idk how to read japanese on mother 1+2.

SoreThumb said on Jan. 28, 2011

OK.
Who’s the hottie in the intro when Will does all those various flashes of his mustache and a dog? The girl with the spiral background and dress.
Also: MUCH better than the classic review.

TMMDI said on Jan. 28, 2011

I lol’d when the guy was all serious and said “I would kill.” He looked dead serious. xD

yetikirby said on Feb. 3, 2011

I’m glad to see that a least some of the video game world other than us still care! πŸ™‚

PSI rockin' said on Feb. 3, 2011

To be honest, I had to vote 2, cause I get Β£20, A FEW TIMES A YEAR.

Starcat5 said on Feb. 8, 2011

Day one? Pansies! Preorder is the way to go!

Floridian said on Feb. 8, 2011

I will kill.

Just killing- I mean Kidding!

Seriously, Make the compilation.

PKLucas said on Feb. 18, 2011

I would Pre-order it, buy it on the day it came out. (Probably even a couple cartridges!)

Yonderfork said on May. 8, 2011

Why doesn’t someone make a homebrew compilation?

Yonderfork said on May. 8, 2011

I would if I could.

Sapphireqazer said on Dec. 9, 2012

I would burn down an orphanage full of handicapped-black babies to get a trilogy compilation in English

Mac said on Nov. 9, 2013

He said that the mother series is might be considered the best ever but I thought Mato said that a lot of people don’t like mother 3 in japan
