Mailbag: Itoi and EarthBound
tan sent this to me a while back:
Not sure if this has been pointed out before, but in the movie “Doraemon: Nobita and the New Steel Troops—Winged Angels” there is shot with a game box for “Father 5”. Maybe not that exciting, but I still thought it was pretty cool!?
Yep, looks like a “FATHER 5” box but reversed or something!
This sort of parody seems to be pretty common in anime and manga, I think partly because the people creating these things now were kids when the game came out. Some other examples in include MOUSE 3, IMOUTO 2, and FATHER 2.
