A few weeks back, an old interview between Shigesato Itoi and Shigeru Miyamoto from 1999 was translated and posted on Nintendo World Report. Part of the interview covers the topic of MOTHER 3 for the Nintendo 64 and is worth checking out!! Here’s a quick example blurb from Miyamoto, see the article for the full thing: I really hope we get it into a playable state by winter. I look forward to...Read More »
It’s that time again! Lots of mini-updates! Check ‘em out! Memories of Deleted Saves Luke Records says: Hello, I just read your anti-piracy Earthbound article and had flashbacks. As a child, my brothers and I played this game constantly. We worked our way to the last battle twice, but both times all of our saves were deleted. We had trouble winning the last battle, and it was usual...Read More »
Many years ago a bunch of us Starmen.Net people put together a petition for EarthBound 64/MOTHER 3 – if you’ve never seen or heard about it, there’s more info here. It was actually our second petition for the game, and I think it was the one Miyamoto mentioned when he said that EarthBound fans are “really solid”. Anyway, the other day the guys at Fangamer were lookin...Read More »
Many years back, before MOTHER 3 for the GBA was released, I went and translated every screenshot of the Nintendo 64 version that I could find and posted all the information here. I didn’t realize I missed a line until a reader named Angela recently sent an e-mail to me: So, in the Earthbound 64 preview trailer, the first line the woman Flints talking to say’s “I have one thing t...Read More »
Over the past few months I’ve heard some very quiet, vague rumblings about a collector getting his hands on a prototype copy of MOTHER 3/EarthBound 64. I’m still VERY skeptical about it all, but here’s what I know and have been told by various sources. Apparently the trail started with a YouTube comment… which already sets off some alarms, but you can see it here: A month ...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 »
Back in 2000 (holy crap it’s already 13 years later), when the Nintendo 64 version of MOTHER 3 – aka EarthBound 64 – was cancelled, Satoru Iwata, Shigeru Miyamoto, and Shigesato Itoi sat down and talked all about the cancellation. It was then posted online over the course of like 15 pages. There was so much text that nobody ever really fully translated the discussion… unti...Read More »
ChocoZuri sent me this a little while back: Hey, Mato! I have here scans from an old MOTHER 3 post-Spaceworld preview that I believe has not made it to this site. It’s not big on any new screenshots (Despite a clearer shot of Osohe Castle), but it seems to be a little more in-depth on the storyline & battle system than anything, along with some side-notes from the publishers as well. N...Read More »
Super translator Chewy recently translated a very big and very interesting interview with Shigeru Miyamoto and Shigesato Itoi back before the Nintendo 64 Disk System was released in Japan and while it still seemed like the next big thing for Nintendo. There’s a ton of stuff they cover, including various things relating to MOTHER 3/EarthBound 64 that not even I’ve heard before, so give...Read More »
A few years back, before MOTHER 3 was released, I updated the EarthBound 64 section of Starmen.Net with everything I could find, including all the videos I could find. You can see them here. Apparently there was some EarthBound 64 video stuff during a video shown at E3 in 1998. It’s only like four seconds long, but I’d never seen it before so I thought I’d share it! In it, we se...Read More »
