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 »
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 »
A few days ago someone was like, “Hey, are you gonna stream Japanese Super Smash Bros. stuff?” and then I realized, “Hey, that comes out soon and I DO have a Japanese 3DS with capture stuff, that sounds like a cool idea!” So yesterday I streamed some of the Japanese Super Smash Bros. 3DS demo with Poe and had a lot of fun with it. While playing, we encountered a couple Eart...Read More »
A couple readers have sent in some pictures of the Devil Car enemy from MOTHER 1/EarthBound Zero as it apparently appears in the upcoming Smash Bros. games. I don’t know the source of these or if they’re even legitimate, but I thought I might share them anyway since they look pretty cool regardless: In EarthBound Zero, this name was actually localized to “PsychoCar” to av...Read More »
adelinax sent this in a while back: here is a scan from a German promotional booklet for the Wii-U that is available at larger electronics stores. I’m not 100% sure what it says – can anyone share a translation? Also, it’s kind of disappointing that the game hasn’t actually been translated into German, but I guess that’d be too much work/too much money for a simple V...Read More »
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 »
