EarthBound Preview in NP #70
Archive for 2013
I’m still playing catch-up with a lot of the news and submissions I’ve gotten since the EarthBound Bash 😯 First up is this really cool submission from Slab Lab, who says: I was walking down the hallways when I passed the theater room at my school.(I crossed out the city for privacy purposes) They had a poster up for their most recent play they are preforming. It really caught my ey...Read More »
This is old news by now, but ShirowWolf sent me this e-mail back around the time the EarthBound Bash was happening so I didn’t get to it until now: Hi, Tomato- So here we have Reggie Fils-Aime basically admitting that Nintendo of America doesn’t listen to fan petitions and campaigns, and they ‘don’t effect what [Nintendo]’ does. Now, this isn’t surprising at all...Read More »
Adam sent me an e-mail over the weekend about EarthBound and GameStop stores: Hi! I’ve been following the Earthbound Bash, and it was quite a story. What an inspiration! Anyhow, today I was in a Gamestop in Houston, Texas when my wife pointed out that they were selling Earthbound VC downloads (in addition to other classic titles). I snapped a few pictures for you. I’m not really sure ...Read More »
renstimpy1 sent this a little while back and it somehow wound up in my spam folder. I’m glad I found it, though! Hey Mato! Today I was browsing the Cutting Room Floor and went to a article on Super Smash Bros Melee. When I got down to the “reflections” section of the article I saw that a old screenshot of Osohe Castle from EB64 Is being used as a reflection for several trophies in-game....Read More »
pk_stan e-mailed me this morning about a set of new, official MOTHER 2 merchandise – new figure keychain straps! Here’s a look at the flier: These will be available from those capsule toy machine things, and each capsule toy is 200 yen. They supposedly become available starting this month, and may already be available in some places in Japan, but I don’t have any confirmation on...Read More »
The final day of the EarthBound Bash was a few days ago, and so much happened that I barely remember it all. If I forget anything here, let me know in the comments! Some of the stuff that happened on the last day included: Trash burgers! These were actually originally intended to come out of a pinata, but at the last minute we stuck them in an actual nasty trash can. I’m pretty sure I ingest...Read More »
The EarthBound Bash is finally over! I’m still recuperating so I won’t have an update about it until later (and if anyone has screencaps of Day 3, please send ’em my way!) but I HAVE to share this off-stream photo from Day 2: That’s right – EarthBound’s localizer is playing MY translation of MOTHER 3! I’ve said this before elsewhere, but it really feels l...Read More »
Yesterday was Day 2 of the EarthBound Bash and so many things happened that I can’t remember it all! Marcus Lindblom, the localization director of EarthBound, joined us at the Fangamer office! I asked him about a variety of localization changes he made in the game. He even chatted briefly about other interesting topics, such as his time working on Star Fox 2! PoeTrader and I made a bunch of ...Read More »
Yesterday was Day 1 of the EarthBound Bash, and it was a ton of fun! Some of the things that happened included: Playing EarthBound, of course! Live music throughout the event! A peek at the official MOTHER 2 novel… which sent the chat room insane! The stuff in the official novel really is that ridiculous 😯 Calls and Skypes from viewers + crazy pizza toppings chosen by callers Auctions! ...Read More »
The EarthBound Bash is tomorrow, but there’s still more stuff to reveal about it! Here are a few more things to expect during this three-day EarthBound event: Fobbies are Borange Reunion If you’re a fan of the old Fobbies are Borange audio series like I am, this is awesome news! It sounds like the gang’s going to get together and chat with the EB Bash people on Skype, answer fan...Read More »
