At long last, the upgraded version of the popular “Cognitive Dissonance” EarthBound fangame is complete! Here’s a quick description of the game: It takes place between the first and second games in the series: after Giegue’s first defeat yet before Ness’s adventure.

Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U was released the other day for some countries – alas I only have a Japanese Wii U so I still have to wait a while. I’ve done a few simple searches to see things I’m missing out on, like this new Onett song: And I’ve heard that EarthBound is finally in the Masterpieces section! …But it starts you at the intro of the game with only 5 min...Read More »
Fangamer’s EarthBound Kickstarter is set to end in a few days! If you haven’t checked it out yet, some really cool, unprecedented stuff is happening!

It’s nearing a release now, so here’s a quick preview of a few of the tracks! And here’s a preview of one of the tracks, called “Instinct of the West”. Try to guess what song it’s based off of within the ...Read More »
The other day, Nintendo posted a video that showcases a bunch of the content that’ll be in the upcoming Wii U Super Smash Bros game – if you haven’t seen it yet, it’s here. Anyway, there were a few things related to EarthBound in there – the biggest one that wowed a lot of people was when it was revealed that you could take in-game screenshots and draw on them. One of...Read More »

The full details are available on the Kickstarter page, but basically, they’re working on: An EarthBound handbook along the same lines as the MOTHER 3 handbook A full-length documentary on EarthBound fans outside of Japan A music album A collection of fan works You can find a ...Read More »
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...Read More »
