EarthBound Preview in NP #70
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 »
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 »
