Tips for Buying EarthBound

August 25th, 2014 | Images, MOTHER 1, Rumors, Smash Bros.

A couple readers have sent in some pictures of the Devil Car enemy from MOTHER 1/EarthBound Zero as it apparently appears in the upcoming Smash Bros. games. I don’t know the source of these or if they’re even legitimate, but I thought I might share them anyway since they look pretty cool regardless:

smash-mother-devil-car-1 smash-mother-devil-car-2

In EarthBound Zero, this name was actually localized to “PsychoCar” to avoid the devil reference. So if this is legitimate, it’s interesting to see it being reverted. How the times change!

Lucas pls ;_;

Daniel said on Aug. 25, 2014

This would be awesome! Finally there would be something from the Mother franchise. Maybe Ness still has a chance to be there.

I guess they kept the name because smash bros is going to be a T rated game.

Ness was also leaked by the same leakerhttp://www.idigitaltimes.com/articles/24451/20140821/super-smash-bros-4-leak-character-wiki.htm

Squ0ldrive said on Aug. 25, 2014

I just hope Lucas makes it in.

It also possible the SBB localization team didn’t check EB0’s localization, since it is unreleased. (The person who translated the description might not even know there was a translation.)

potato said on Aug. 25, 2014

Forgot to mention this, but previous SBB things have also translated jp stuff directly instead of checking previous localizations. (See Ike and the Black Knight in Brawl, the game calls their swords by their japanese names, among other things)

According to the leaked info, Lucas is supposed to be available as a DLC character along with others. See here: http://static1.gamespot.com/uploads/original/1534/15343359/2635709-leaked+image.jpg

I believe this is true given the accuracy of the screenshots from the same leaker.

neonix said on Aug. 25, 2014

What I find *really* cool is that they actually referred to the series as Mother instead of lumping it under the EarthBound title like they did with all the Mother 3 stuff in SSB Brawl. It is possible the translator did a direct translation without double-checking though…

Miles of SmashWiki said on Aug. 25, 2014

It previously appeared under the name “Devil Car” in Brawl as a sticker. Guess they don’t treat Sandhop’s translation as official.

2Sang said on Aug. 25, 2014

It’s sad having no lucas in the starting roster, but with 686+ trophies in just the 3ds version, there will likely be plenty of mother trophies. I’d personally like to see Ninten and Eve get trophies.

Anonymous said on Aug. 25, 2014

Is this the first time SSB has called it just Mother? (I think Brawl did “Earthbound (Mother)”

2Sang said on Aug. 25, 2014

Also, magicant is a stage. That’s freegin awesome!

Anonymous said on Aug. 25, 2014

Can someone please post the link of any images of the Magicant stage?

Anonymous said on Aug. 25, 2014

No confirmation on the Magicant stage, it’s speculation based on an image with the stage select and one really bright pink(same color as magicant in M1) stage.

Anonymous said on Aug. 25, 2014

Fingers crossed for Lucas: He was my main in Brawl.
But, something’s bothering me. On the second image:
“News: Smash! Shulk has grabbed the most Attack stat boosts!”

…SHULK CONFIRMED??

Fjord said on Aug. 26, 2014

Some think the ‘Magicant’ stage might actually be a Rhythm Heaven Stage.

Anonymous said on Aug. 26, 2014

They need Lucas. Not Ness, there is no reason to include him to represent MOTHER, since they don’t include protagonists of older video games. But Lucas should be there. I think a Masked Man alternate costume for Mega Man would be great. :3

Chivi-chivik said on Aug. 26, 2014

I just know that most of these are just especulations, so I won’t take them into consideration until everything’s properly confirmed.

@xxx_Nicki_Minaj_xxx
Actually, the 3DS version is rated E10+.

@Anonymous
“They don’t include protagonists of older games”? Then how do you explain Ice Climbers, Pit, Duck Hunt Dog, Marth, and the rumored Mach Rider? And in case you didn’t notice, Masked Man and Mega Man are from two different series <_<

@Chivi-chivik
These are very-difficult-to-fake screenshots and impossible-to-fake gameplay videos (that Nintendo even took down). That's not speculation. Everything shown in those screenshots is true; what we don't know is what hasn't been shown yet.

project-stuff said on Aug. 26, 2014

When I first saw this, it looks interesting. I still can’t say if it’s true or not, since I’d rather find out by playing the game myself than trusting leaks.

Welp, leaks like these tend to kill my hype for the game. Which one’s true, which one’s fake, I can’t believe anymore.

Roxas said on Aug. 26, 2014

OH MY GAD !!!
“new smash SHULK GRAB…SUHLK !!!!!!

Still_me said on Aug. 27, 2014

@Hyperstar96
Ice Climbers are axed, Marth was in FE11 and 12, the two games before Awakening, Pit was in some 3DS game I never played, and the rest were mere assist trophies, if I recall. I do not trust those “leaks”. Also, I do know Mega Man and Masked Man are from different games… But they are not too different in shape, so I think an alternate costume for MM would be better than no Masked Man at all.

PsyschoDriver said on Aug. 27, 2014

I actually prefer the name Psycho Car.

That being said I could never beat these things without the Easy Ring patch. MOTHER is a broken mess without Tomato’s glorious fixes applied. Can’t wait till the MOTHER Remake Hack is finished so it’ll be even more accessible!

An E and two 8 said on Aug. 27, 2014

I think I’ll play safe and wait to see if this and the other leaks are true before saying something…

But, yeah, fake or not this is cool looking anyways! I like how, according to the car’s description, it’s exhaust fumes can paralyze. Just like in the original game!

Hyperstar96 said on Aug. 27, 2014

@Still_me

… What are you talking about? You said Smash Bros. doesn’t include protagonists of older games, when they clearly do:

– Ice Climbers were in Melee, 16 years after their original game (1985).
Marth’s most recent game at the time of Melee was Mystery of the Emblem (FE3) in 1994, even though there were two more FE games released between then and Melee.
– Pit’s last game at the time of Brawl was in 1991 – and that wasn’t even released in Japan. That’s a 17 year gap.

Those are gameplay videos that Nintendo themselves took down, and there is a LOT of evidence supporting their validity. What part of that do you not understand? Oh well… if I can’t make you realize you’re wrong, I guess you’ll just have to wait about three weeks for the game to be released in Japan.

As for the costumes, my point is that giving a character from Series A a costume from Series B is just… stupid. And the two characters don’t even have similar attacks.

Joe said on Aug. 28, 2014

I’m sure Ness will be in the game with no announcement.

ninten said on Aug. 29, 2014

The white people of the translation foreigner I’m sorry. I’m Japanese. And will not be pardon. I be waiting.

vince94 said on Aug. 29, 2014

I bet the translators and localizers didn’t know about/hadn’t played EB0. That’s understandable, as I remember from an interview that Marcus wasn’t entirely comfortable with downloading ROMs, so they probably wouldn’t be either.
