Tips for Buying EarthBound

December 23rd, 2013 | EarthBound, Images

The other day I posted about how you can buy a downloadable copy of EarthBound from GameStop stores – and how they even have a special box for EarthBound!

I had only seen photos of the back of the box, but a kind reader sent in a look at the front of the box later on. Here it is!


Also, a reader named gooieooie sent this bit of info in about EarthBound’s description on Nintendo’s service:

Hey, Mato!

This is something very small, but since you seem to like looking at stuff like this, here it is! On the EarthBound eShop page (where you can buy the game, watch the trailer, etc.), there is a small typo in the game’s description. It says “A boy names Ness vows to protect the Earth from Giygas!” (or something along those lines.) It should say “named Ness”, instead of “names”. Just noting this because it’s still there after being available for quite a while, so I guess Nintendo still hasen’t noticed. 😀

So there you go!

Tonda Gossa!

I don’t have an American Wii U handy to check this out for myself, but it sounds familiar somehow, like other people have mentioned it before.

Typo Defense Squad, activate! (aka let’s see how long it takes for it to get fixed now that it’s been pointed out 😛 )

Thanks to everyone who’s been sending in info about the release – it’s crazy that there’s still stuff to talk about even half a year later!

And whatever happened with that Onett Times Miiverse? Has there been any activity with that at all? I wonder what it was created for…

Not that I’ve noticed, I checked it a few weeks ago and it was still as empty as ever. Not sure why they created it. It’s a developer’s blog and such, you’d think they wouldn’t have made it for that ONE post they put up there!

Woah… I got mentioned on EB Central! Cool! Also, if you check the Onett Times comments, there’s a bunch of deleted posts from the same person, and the commenting got restricted after that. I wonder if that’s why they stopped posting?

It actually reached the limit of comments, but yeah, the last few from that guy was just spam stating he wanted MOTHER 3 like 30 times.

Well, I DO see where he’s coming from, but spamming isn’t going to help get it.

just checked miiverse, no changes in onett times…
maybe Nintendo thought that not enough people got into earthbound or something? I don’t know how many people have brought earthbound on the store worldwide but I have a feeling that they were expecting more sale and they didn’t get them. that’s just what I suspect anyways….

@Matthew55 UGH I KNOW RIGHT! I was all like, seriously! Look what you did, you ruined the Onett Times! to that guy. His ID was swawesomenes101. Here’s the post:
