MOTHER Manga Scans
After you defeat Giygas in EarthBound, if you go back to Onett and talk to Ruffini the dog, he’ll tell you to mail your thoughts on the game to a certain real-life mailing address in the United States. In fact, one of the earliest EarthBound community projects was Project Ruffini!
Anyway, in the Japanese version of the game, Ruffini (or Itako Dog as he’s known in MOTHER 2) also tells you to send your thoughts to a certain address in Japan.
What I never knew until today, though, was that Japanese fans who actually sent a letter to said address received a response letter from Mr. Saturn!
Unfortunately, I can’t find a copy of the letter anywhere online or even very much info about it. It’ll have to remain a mystery for now, but maybe someday we’ll find out more! I don’t remember if they changed his line in MOTHER 1+2, if not, I wonder if the address still worked.
Of course, if you want to know more about the differences between MOTHER 2 and EarthBound, see here!
