A while back, Liz Kirby e-mailed me about custom-made, EarthBound-themed wedding invitations! Hello! My fiancee and I are both diehard fans of EarthBound, so of course we had to have something EarthBound-related for our wedding! I thought I’d share with you our EarthBound wedding invitations. Each one was made by hand, “pixel” by “pixel.” It took a lot of time and en...Read More »
EBfan sent this quick message to me: I don’t know if this was already posted but while surfing on the web, I came across a youtuber called Biddy Diddle (Feathery-Wings on deviantart) who made a really awesome Ninten plush doll last year. The amount of work put into it is amazing and it even sings! Whoa, it even sings??? Here’s a look at the doll: And here’s a video about it and...Read More »
A while back, the assistant game designer for MOTHER 2/EarthBound posted a picture of an Onett-themed New Year’s card that APE sent out presumably in 1994: The text translates roughly to, “Our best wishes to you all for the new year.” I never knew this existed until just now, and I’m also amazed that this predates EarthBound flukes by a good four or so years ...Read More »
Tyler sent this in a while back: Hello Tomato, I work at the children’s library in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. Awhile back I sent you a message about a toy theatre adaptation I’m putting together of Mother 1 and though I’ve still got a lot of work to do, it’s coming along well. Toy theatre is basically a small table-top puppet show usually done with paper cutouts. Once up...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!

Some nice-quality pics of Ness and other EarthBound things were recently posted on the official Super Smash Bros. site – you can check them all out here! Here are two of them that I like: It looks like Onett is back! Thanks to everyone who sent in news about these pics! ...Read More »
A while back, Buck Fever sent me this: So I was looking at images of Giygas from the final battle of EarthBound and I noticed that the main image of the screaming skull thing looked odd, so I rotated it 180 degrees and I noticed a similarity between the image and Giygas/Giegue’s sprite in MOTHER: My friend Dan, SgtTyrefell on twitter, went in and tinkered with the image, removing excess ...Read More »
The full version of the Japanese Super Smash Bros. 3DS came out the other day, so the Internet’s been abuzz with all sorts of info about it. Luckily, I had a Japanese 3DS and a capture thingy, so I was able to live-stream a bunch of it too! In particular, I was looking for EarthBound-related content to share here on EB Central… and it didn’t take very long until I ran into Ness! ...Read More »
