Tips for Buying EarthBound

April 22nd, 2012 | EarthBound, Fan Games, Videos

TalentNinjaInc., qpringle1, and NorthofOnett have been working on a fan game called Super Smash Bound – from the name you can probably guess that it’s an EarthBound-themed Smash Bros.-type of game. Here’s some sample gameplay:

A beta version of the game is available on the project page here, and progress can be more closely followed on the Starmen.Net forum thread here!

If someone sells a poor, scared, loney earthbound cart i will buy it.

Mel said on Apr. 22, 2012

TalentNinjaInc said on Apr. 22, 2012

toboar said on Apr. 22, 2012

I can’t believe this is on ebcentral! Sweet

Hawk EB said on Apr. 22, 2012

Can’t play on a tablet

Christian said on Apr. 22, 2012

I think this idea is great but I feel like they should work on their prespective view on the map.

TalentNinjaInc said on Apr. 22, 2012

@Christian

What exactly do you mean by that? If it’s something I could change I’ll certainly work on it.

@Hawk EB

No, it’s an Exe file. for like, PC’s. Not an App. Sorry.

toboar said on Apr. 22, 2012

@TalentNinjaInc
Christian means maps like magicant and others with a side-scrolling levels

MrNessEagleofOnett said on Apr. 23, 2012

I remember that I tried to do this a few years ago, but using SSB Brawl as the engine. Never worked out but this looks interesting.

NorthofOnett said on Apr. 23, 2012

@Christian I’m working on stages for this, and I’m doing my best to keep the field of play on one plain of perspective. (the only stage of mine that’s in the game right now is Fourside; more are sure to come in the future though!)

Christian said on Apr. 23, 2012

What I mean is that it should have a side scrolling view like in SSB. Sorry if I sound rude.

TalentNinjaInc said on Apr. 23, 2012

No, no, not rude at all! I love feedback.

As for your question, Yes, Side scrolling levels are planned. In fact, in the finished version, Thunder Tower will be a scrolling level.

Hawk EB said on Apr. 23, 2012

I wish this wood be a app. I don’t have a pc and you should add maps like winters or new pork city or osohe castle

TalentNinjaInc said on Apr. 23, 2012

Sorry. This stuff is copyrighted, so I’m most likely not going to be able to sell it.

All those maps are planned, though. 🙂

Hawk EB said on Apr. 23, 2012

Oh earthbound with it’s copyrights but it suckes that i do not have a pc. I wood love to play super smash bound

Hawk EB said on Apr. 23, 2012

Ps: we should buy the rights of earthbound from nintendo

TalentNinjaInc said on Apr. 23, 2012

I wish. If we had the rights to all things EB we’d start with an official Mother 3 localization, DS Earthbound, and all sorts of stuff that NOA doesn’t want us to have.

Ugh. Don’t get me started.

Hawk EB said on Apr. 23, 2012

Mother 4 wood be in my wii and earthbound on the vc. But no the NOA piss all the earthbound fans off. Ps: we should have a earthbound convinsion and sell earthbound fan made figures or something.

Hawk EB said on Apr. 23, 2012

Ps: sorry if i sound rude

Furball200x said on Apr. 23, 2012

My computer refused to open the file because it had a virus…….
):

TalentNinjaInc said on Apr. 24, 2012

Furball, Chrome and some other other virus protection programs think that it’s a virus simply because it’s an EXE, and those can transfer viruses directly to the hard-drive. Any .EXE you download will do that.

I can assure you, it’s not.

Hawk EB said on Apr. 24, 2012

We still should have a earthbound convinsion

Furball200x said on Apr. 24, 2012

Sorry about that, just wanted to make sure.

Mr.Fobbie said on Apr. 29, 2012

Whats with the story? I beat Kumatora and it said “Select battle” … 🙁

TalentNinjaInc said on May. 1, 2012

Kumatora is the last fight of v0.5 because I have not finished developing story.

If anybody finds further questions or glitches, please refer to the forum post. There, you can get updated regularly.

The graphics can use a little work but it is okay

BusterTheFox said on Nov. 3, 2012

I didn’t really understand the gameplay video much at all… Is this supposed to be like Super Smash Bros., or is it basically just a title? I don’t see any percentage meters or anything. :p

Anyway, it looks promising, but I’m not sure I would play it right now. Maybe I’ll see what’s going on with this at the forum topic.

When I press the link to download it all it says is home and a picture of white wooden plank things and the page is all white… Halp.
