Tips for Buying EarthBound

March 4th, 2012 | EarthBound, Events, Itoi, Uncommon Knowledge

Just before MOTHER 2’s release in Japan in 1994, a special celebratory event was held for all of the staff members who worked on the game. Chewy’s translated an article about it and included lots of scans of pictures from the event, check it all out here!


The event hall


The official figures were displayed

My favorite quote is probably this part of Miyamoto’s speech:

“These five years passed in the blink of an eye. (laughs) After all, my children were in preschool when we first started working on the game, and now they’re already old enough to understand it.”

Also, Chewy’s recently updated some of her past MOTHER series article translations with scans! See here for details! Exclamation!

Seems like there were a lot of people there, I wonder how many people were involved in the development of Mother 2?

Bionic and Nessu: The figures pictured here were the original promo figures for the game — the figures the Banpresto toys were modeled off of. So there will be quite a few you probably never saw before. These ones never went on sale. I mean Trillionage Sprout can be seen back there and we know he never hit the UFO machines. 😉
