EarthBound Keyboard Guy
I’ve always been impressed by the Brazilian EarthBound community, and now they’ve gone and accomplished an incredibly difficult feat: they’ve translated the game into Portuguese! See here for the latest patch! I quickly took some screenshots from the beginning, but I’m considering doing a full run of it sometime since they put so much work into it! Congratulatio...Read More »
A couple fans have recently let me know that EarthBound has sold out on the Club Nintendo system. Here’s some info from J64: EarthBound was offered as one of the final Club Nintendo rewards with a price of 250 coins. Recently, it seems as though they ran out of stock. I guess they pre-allocate a certain number of download codes for each game, because I can think of no other way for a digit...Read More »
GameStop yesterday (courtesy of KingDarian) I’ve been off the Internet the past few weeks for various reasons, and apparently the other day a bunch of EarthBound/MOTHER 3 stuff happened. For now, though, it sounds like there was an announcement that the Ness Amiibo is a GameStop-exclusive item, and that pre-orders would go on sale at a specific time yesterday. Pre-orders could be made online...Read More »
A reader named Ty sent this in a while back Hello. I would just like to submit a little decal I made for my ‘new’ 3DS using DecalGirl. You can make decals for a lot of other devices, too. It is fairly cheap, so I recommend using it if you’re interested in making your own decal. I made mine EarthBound themed and even though it is quite simple, I’m very happy with it. You c...Read More »
A very common question I’ve had over the last year or two – especially within the last few months – is, “I’ve found this version of EarthBound called ‘EarthBound Uncut’ on eBay. Is it an official release? What’s the deal?” It’s true – EarthBound Uncut cartridges have suddenly sprung up everywhere and in a bunch of different forms! H...Read More »
Finding and purchasing Amiibos has been a big headache for a lot of Nintendo fans lately. And with the Ness Amiibo set to come out sometime soon, I imagine the frustration of getting one will have EarthBound fans bashing stuff with bats and yo-yos. But Jon S. has a tip for you if you’re hoping to get a Ness Amiibo without much hassle: Ness Amiibo pre-orders are available now on Amazon.jp I...Read More »
I posted a while ago about the upcoming EarthBound Convention aka EarthBound Bash Mk II aka Camp Fangamer – basically, Fangamer is holding a small, EarthBound-themed convention in Tucson this July. The convention was originally a stretch goal for Fangamer’s Kickstarter last year, so certain backers were allowed to claim tickets first. But now tickets are open to the public! You can r...Read More »
A while back, yui sent me an e-mail about a set of neat EarthBound remixes made by Cory Johnson: I was feeling down today so I searched for EarthBound music arrangements and stumbled upon this cool post-rock album that lifted my spirits. Think Sigur Ròs meets EarthBound, it’s incredible! And here’s the description for the album: This is a sometimes post-rock, sometimes psychedelic-roc...Read More »
A couple weeks ago, a new game called Citizens of Earth was released on Steam and possibly elsewhere. Since the very beginning it was touted as being heavily-inspired by EarthBound. I haven’t played it but just from random screenshots I can kind of see it. There are apparently even EarthBound references in the game that fans will pick up on: I have yet to play the game, but lots of people...Read More »
Club Nintendo, which was Nintendo’s system for rewarding fans who bought lots of games, is apparently closing soon, but if you have 250 reward coins you can still trade them in for a free copy of EarthBound for the Wii U! The offer only lasts a few months, so act now if you can! This deadline is just for Club Nintendo stuff, though – even after it expires you’ll still be able to...Read More »
