MOTHER 1+2 Spanish Translation Available
Adam sent me an e-mail over the weekend about EarthBound and GameStop stores: Hi! I’ve been following the Earthbound Bash, and it was quite a story. What an inspiration! Anyhow, today I was in a Gamestop in Houston, Texas when my wife pointed out that they were selling Earthbound VC downloads (in addition to other classic titles). I snapped a few pictures for you. I’m not really sure ...Read More »
The EarthBound Bash is finally over! I’m still recuperating so I won’t have an update about it until later (and if anyone has screencaps of Day 3, please send ‘em my way!) but I HAVE to share this off-stream photo from Day 2: That’s right – EarthBound’s localizer is playing MY translation of MOTHER 3! I’ve said this before elsewhere, but it really feels l...Read More »
Joe sent me this the other day: I was at a concert on Thursday in San Francisco when I found this (see picture) in the bathroom. I got pretty excited cause I wasn’t expecting it, plus I’m hoping that there’s some awesme Earthbound-inspired band behind it. Neat! This calls for Mr. Saturn/bathroom jokes! Begin… now! ...Read More »
The other day was Day of the Dead, and Virus Visal celebrated it with some amazing EarthBound art! Here’s a look at it: And here it is on display at the art gallery: Here’s some added info about it: Finally i can reveal the illustration that didn’t let me sleep so many nights! You know it, I know it, Earthbound is the best game ever, I could not resist making an illustration of it ...Read More »
Since this seems to be Unofficial Reference Week here at EB Central, here’s another possible reference, this time a MOTHER 3 one in Pokemon X & Y. Dylankernou writes: So in Pokemon X and Y in “Shalour City” I noticed what I assume to be a Mother 3 reference in the Pokemon Center, a punk NPC gives out the follow text: “I’ve been playing this sweet game recently, y...Read More »
While we’re on the topic of MOTHER/EarthBound cameos in stuff, here’s another! I’ve read Gintama manga Chapter 416. I found that they said about Earthbound (Mother2) advertise leaflet a lot, and have some parody of this leaflet. This manga is really popular, and I’m glad that everyone still remember Earthbound. This is a parody of the live-action scene used for the MOTHER ...Read More »
The English localization of Rune Factory 4 came out recently, and I’ve heard that it’s brimming with references to stuff. So it’s not surprising that it has an EarthBound reference too! Thanks to noxvulpes for the tip and the image! ...Read More »
Matthew Taranto sent me this recently: Hi, EarthBoundCentral staff! My name is Matthew Taranto and I’m the creator of the webcomic Brawl in the Family…and a big EarthBound fan. I’m just giving you the heads up regarding another EB print review. This one’s in NF Magazine (formerly known as Nintendo Force) and is written (and drawn!) by yours truly. I’m hoping my pa...Read More »
Sebastian has sent in another scan of a recent magazine review of EarthBound! This one is from GamesMaster, which I’d actually never heard of before. Here’s a look it: The review seems very enthusiastic about the game and gives it a 91% score. Man, it’s still so awesome to see all these magazines raving about it now You know how a few American magazine reviews back in the mid-...Read More »
chuggaaconroy spotted this just the other day – it’s a piece of exercise/diet equipment that has the EarthBound font on it! The bottom text is for comparison purposes, and it definitely looks like it’s one of the EarthBound-based fonts, probably the one here or here. Looking around online, it seems they use this font for the website and other promotional materials, not just the ...Read More »
