A couple readers let me know yesterday that the Too Many Games convention being held this weekend has a very strong EarthBound theme to it! In fact, the website itself is EarthBound themed right now: And here are some photos from the event itself that people have sent my way: Cool stuff! It’s a fun time to be a fan – EarthBound stuff seems to be going on everywhere lately! ...Read More »
Over on the Pixel Paint Miiverse, StarmanAlx posted three renditions of what EarthBound Beginnings might’ve looked like as a Game Boy game: I’m always amazed at how Miiverse artists can draw with such fine detail! Is there some sort of special way to draw pixel art like this, or is it all just using a steady hand? In any case, great work StarmanAlx! …Now I wonder if any Game B...Read More »
A couple years back I posted about how Shigesato Itoi and MOTHER 1 were referenced in the Gintama manga. Well, the anime has since caught up to that point – meaning those drawings and references are now in moving color! Here are two quick screenshots for reference: There are actually a lot more – you can find them here courtesy of Eraserstatue, but some of it might not be considered ...Read More »
I like finding old magazine articles about EarthBound, and even though I’ve been doing this for years I still run across new old articles! Today’s is from Total! magazine, a UK publication that lasted from 1992 to 1996. In the March 95 issue was a little blurb about EarthBound, mixed in with a lot of other games from the time: And here’s the EarthBound piece specifically: EARTH...Read More »
A few months ago I posted about an official MOTHER 2 New Year’s Card that a few staff members received back in 1995. I had never heard of the card before then, and all we had was a sort of blurry photo: A few fans were like, “Hey, maybe we should try to remake that ourselves!” And then MightyYT went and did just that: And here it is translated into English based on my translati...Read More »
I always enjoy seeing how magazines covered EarthBound back in 1994/1995, but I thought I had covered them all by now. I was wrong! Retromags had this neat scan from Nintendo Magazine System, an Australian gaming magazine: Here’s what it has to say about EarthBound / MOTHER 2: One of the strangest Japanese RPGs is the bizarre Mother 2, which was mentioned a few months ago in these very page...Read More »
Things have been so crazy lately that I forgot to mention this last month, but the MOTHER 3 fan translation got a page of coverage in New York Magazine recently! You can see an online version with slightly different formatting here, too! A couple details seem to be a little off – the documentary coming out next year is more focused on EarthBound than MOTHER 3, for example, but in all itR...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 »
