EarthBound Released on Wii U Virtual Console Today!
tan sent this to me a while back: Not sure if this has been pointed out before, but in the movie “Doraemon: Nobita and the New Steel Troops—Winged Angels” there is shot with a game box for “Father 5″. Maybe not that exciting, but I still thought it was pretty cool!? Yep, looks like a “FATHER 5″ box but reversed or something! This sort of parody seems to be pr...Read More »
A while back on Twitter, ChronoMoogle shared this scan of an old MOTHER 2 preview in an early 1993 issue of Hippon Super: And here’s a quick translation of what it says: Is Nintendo’s Eagerly-Awaited New Game Nearing a Release Date? SFC MOTHER 2: Gyiyg’s Counterattack *Nintendo *Release Date TBA *Price TBA It’s been half a year since screenshots of MOTHER 2 were released. ...Read More »
I thought I’d share this little April Fool’s joke that a Japanese MOTHER fan made: Nintendo Officially Announces MOTHER 4 It’s about time! They said they were gonna stop at 3, but they’re gonna make a sequel anyway? I assume the story takes place much earlier than 3, since the world’s been destroyed and all by then. It looks like the Kraken’s in it again…...Read More »
A number of prototype EarthBound Zero cartridges have been floating around for years (details here) but recently the authenticity of some of them has come into question. So Sith, Stevesesy, and others have been doing some detective work over the past few months. I’m still not caught up with all the details about this, but most recently they got in contact with Andrew DeRouin, the owner of th...Read More »
Melissa King, a really cool and talented artist by profession, has made this piece of EarthBound art for a charity auction: If you’re interested in owning it, you can bid on this piece of art here! This is for the Press Start: Nintendo Charity, which has lots and lots of other great art, including lots more EarthBound/MOTHER-series stuff, as well as art based on other series enirely. There...Read More »
I missed the last half of yesterday’s Smash Bros. preview video, but apparently some MOTHER series stuff was shown off or displayed in press promo images or something? In any case, here are two screenshots of MOTHER series things returning – Mr. Saturn and the Franklin Badge! If these are returning, we can probably assume other EarthBound/MOTHER stuff will be returning and/or debutin...Read More »
The other day I stumbled upon a Japanese MOTHER 2 site that had a gigantic town map of Onett made out of those art bead things: Man, that’d be cool to have on my wall! For some more MOTHER 2 bead pics, including in-progress pictures of it being put together, check out Maasan’s site here! ...Read More »
A little while ago, Derrek sent me this e-mail: I dont know if this would interest you. but its been a real treat for me so far so i thought i’d share. A miiverse user by the name of moldyclay has been drawing out his entire adventure of earthbound so far. His posts have been criminally overlooked it seems so I thought i’d point the community in his direction You can check out MoldyCla...Read More »
Slab Lab sent this in a little while back: My friend and I cosplayed as Ness and Pokey to Ikki-Con recently. We hand-made pretty much all of it except for our shoes. We where hoping win in the cosplay contest, but didn’t. Still, our costumes seemed to get everyone at the convention pretty excited, so I thought maybe you would like to see them also. Those are some really good costumes, and h...Read More »
