Tips for Buying EarthBound

June 23rd, 2014 | EarthBound, Images

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.

This reminds me of all the jokes we make up during the Mother 3 1.2 streams about how this or that is Mother 4 or 5 or 97. I wonder what a game titled Father made by Itoi would be like!? xD …Actually, probably a lot like what happens with Flint in Mother 3, just without the tragic, er, MOTHER thing. :p Maybe that’s what he was going for in making the game start off as you playing as the FATHER character this time? Mother and father, together as one. How deep. Brings a tear to my proverbial eye. :,(

The boxes to the right of it also have a similarly shaped banner on top to the Wii boxes. Also note that Japan got black boxes for mature games on Wii, near the end of the system’s life. And finally, in that banner in the screenshot above, there’s a “W” on them, probably hinting that they’re supposed to be Wii games (or spoofs thereof).

The one just down to the right looks like Momotaro Densetsu for Wii ! Same character on the boxart with a differently coloured hat.

This demonstrates how Japan likes MOTHER.
(I’ll do the same in my original fiction XD)

Mother, Father, Sister…

Now all we need is a “Brother” game and the family will be complete.

I watched the movie once and while I can’t remember exactly, the reason the boxes (all of them) are in reverse compared to their rl counterparts is probably because this part takes place in the mirror world Nobita and Doraemon took all his friends to.

90% of EarthBound fans: (NSFW warning because ED)

Swwet cameo, though looking from still, I wonder if this is flash-animated or not?

And, eh at that ED link, I know us Earthbound fans got a bad rep ’round the parts, but at least this fan’s got enough humor to laugh at himself and his own obsession. 😀 Hopefully, other EB fans do, too. 😛
