EARTHBOUND (Super Nintendo Entertainment System, 1995) GOOD SHAPE & TESTED

Tips for Buying EarthBound

Joe D. sent in a pic from a Japanese magazine that seems to indicate that the Flying Man in the new Super Smash Bros. game was going to be have a 3D model at some point!

And here’s a zoomed-up version of the pic in the article:

Apparently the developers decided to just do the pixel version of Flying Man, as it felt much more authentic and it also reduced the amount of work the game’s engine needed to do.

I still find it a bit strange how the pixel version is right next to it. Maybe it was supposed to go 3d when you tagged it?

They probably haxed both of them at once to show the difference for people who haven’t played the game

For a second, I thought the article talked about the flying man being a part of the SSB4 roster.

Which would have been hella cool but where is my homeboy Lucas!?!?

I personally prefer the pixel version. Magicant is probably my favorite stage in the game (then again, they’re all awesome). I really hope it somehow gets into the Wii U version.

I think Lucas is going to be DLC Oniglut

The flying men are OP. Also, I don’t know how you enjoy any of these stages, EpicJackman. They’re mostly terrible.

I like the pixel version more actually, it seems more authentic to the series, also like was brought up it’s probably less taxing on the game engine. :3 Either way I love that Flying Men are in SSB in general.

I hope they add a 3D flying man to the game somehow, even as a trophy. It’s really cool to see Earthbound characters that were only every shown in 2D in actual 3D. Too bad the scan isn’t better. I can only dream that the Flying Man would be a DLC character.

@EBisumaru Magicant is the best stage in Smash 3DS.

Bwahaha! The Flying Man is easy to deal with, I believe.

Definitely would’ve been interesting to see a 3D rendition of a Flying Man, but in the end it probably was a wise choice to stick with the sprites.

Am I the only one here who’s creeped out over Wii Fit Trainer’s posing in the screenshot here? I mean, come on! It looks like she’s lifting up Flying Man by his trousers and staring at his crotch!!!
