Tips for Buying EarthBound

March 16th, 2013 | EarthBound, Itoi, Videos

Since I know not everyone here has a Wii U, I recorded a video of the MOTHER 2 Miiverse so people can see what it’s like, what’s going on, and stuff like that.

In this video we take a look at all of Shigesato Itoi’s current posts, all the user comments on his posts, as well as a day’s worth of what’s going on in the main MOTHER 2 Miiverse community:

I wish I could get better-quality video but I’ve never had any good experiences with capture cards so I’m using a DVD recorder to get this stuff.

Also, yesterday I started putting together a page listing all of Shigesato Itoi’s Miiverse posts along with translations of them – check it out here! It’ll be a handy place to see all of his messages, although I’ll of course make normal updates about his posts too.

What I find really strange is under shigesato itois bio for Miiverse is that is says he is the “Producer of Earthbound” rather than saying Mother 2…

Which kind of makes me think they are planning on realeasing it hear in te west and got the old legal issues out of the way BUT I won’t get my hopes up to high from just some small detail.

It’s really cool to see all the art and enthusiasm from fans here. I hope the atmosphere remains positive and fun.

And on a side note, if it isn’t too much of a hassle, would you mind identifying the remixes you used for the video? I recognize some but not all of them.

Wow, at the start I saw only a few english comments and then at the end I had to keep pausing the video to read everything! Granted there were some people who just spam hate at Nintendo, and some who spam telling people not to spam, but overall I’m impressed!

Also, great musical selection too Tomato!

I’m excited.

Hey, cool, two of my drawings made the video! 🙂 (Scalding Coffee/Mystical Record/Worthless Protoplasm collage and around 18+ min my MST3K “Spiteful Crow” mashup). My NIND is CaptainCab if anyone wants to see more of my EB/Mother cartoons, I’ve posted more drawings to this community than any other, too much fun, it’s like a party.

Pretty cool to see one of my drawings as well. I drew Jeff at 14:45! This new Mother 2 community is pretty great so far.

Great vid Mato, saw my pic at 19:48, id is snubbybill. I believe Nintendo is getting rid of some of the spam though. There were waaaay more posts from Americans yesterday that I saw that are now gone.

WheatThinEthan said on Mar. 16, 2013

Hey Mato, what was that first song in the video called?

Stuffgamer1 said on Mar. 16, 2013

Found my post at 14:49!

“Don’t skip the rest of the world again, Nintendo! Mother 2/Earthbound for EVERYBODY! You want money?”

Used the full 100 character limit on that one. 😛

fourside said on Mar. 16, 2013

Hey Stuffgamer, I actually saw your post on the actual Miiverse!

Thedreaminhawk said on Mar. 16, 2013

At 10:00 It was me who made the post saying “MOTHER 2/Earthbound in america!

Mato said on Mar. 16, 2013

I can post the songs later, but most of them are from various Rock Candy albums, which you can get here: http://starmen.net/rockcandy/

misterdigi said on Mar. 16, 2013

This is so exciting. It’s awesome to see this little revival going on. It’s cool that english posts can be made on a miiverse that’s primarily in japanese.

FZ64 said on Mar. 16, 2013

saw some of mine all about :I

Mato said on Mar. 16, 2013

For people asking about the music, here’s a zip of it all:

BEST MUSIC IN A VIDEO EVER!!!!

nintendofreak said on Mar. 17, 2013

are they really removing some comments about releasing mother 2 overseas?

THOSE SILENCING BASTARDS!!!!

nah, but in all seriousness why would they do that

thedreaminhawk said on Mar. 17, 2013

They remove some posts because SOME people go way too overboard and post comments like “IF EB DOESN’T HIT NOA I’LL CUT REGGIE WITH A RAZOR KNIFE TO KILL HIM!” (Seriously, that was one of the comments I saw there).

2Sang said on Mar. 17, 2013

I’m wondering how many downloads it will get.

Tourist said on Mar. 17, 2013

With the sale, it’s basically free. There will be A LOT of downloads just for that… and sadly that will only mean it was cheap (not necessarily popular).

break said on Mar. 17, 2013

@Mato

thanks again for the tunes ^_^”

* i hope earthbound returns to NA soon *

Anonymous said on Mar. 17, 2013

I hope EarthBound comes to EU. I really want to try it out.

2sang said on Mar. 17, 2013

I wish itoi would do something for us in america and europe even if he can’t release the game. He could auction off drawings signed by him or some piece of merchandise.

Ranboob said on Mar. 17, 2013

(A bit off topic, sorry)
I was on Gonintendo and I saw an article about this video; on the comment section of the article it seemed that everyone was bashing the series as a whole :c

nintendofreak said on Mar. 17, 2013

I’ve never really heard anyone bash the game, other than the ones that have never even played it >_>

and i agree with 2sang, except just to see him do something with NOJ for us around the world

Stuffgamer1 said on Mar. 17, 2013

In my experience, people who speak ill of EarthBound fit into two basic categories:

1: People who have never played EarthBound and simply refuse to believe that it could POSSIBLY be as good as the fans say.

2: People who concentrate on the gameplay over the story. Let’s not kid ourselves here…while EarthBound has a few nice touches its contemporaries mostly lacked (rolling HP, insta-win, enemies on the map in general…), the battle system really wasn’t that amazing. Those who don’t generally take the time to explore the world of a game would have a hard time understand why EarthBound is so special.

@thedreaminhawk: Are people REALLY being that graphic? Man, those posts SHOULD be deleted. As long as civil posts such as mine remain, we should be okay…though I still don’t know if it’ll actually matter at all… 🙁
