GameStop yesterday (courtesy of KingDarian) I’ve been off the Internet the past few weeks for various reasons, and apparently the other day a bunch of EarthBound/MOTHER 3 stuff happened.

Just a few hours ago, Nintendo announced that an upcoming wave of Amiibo figures will finally include Ness! I think most Amiibo followers knew a Ness figure was going to be released eventually, but now it’s official.

A more rare one is when y...Read More »

I’ve posted before about how the flagship item that Shigesato Itoi’s company sells is a planner. One of the neat things about his planners is the amount of customization and the number of options available. For example, one of the recently-announced covers for the newest planner is targeted directly at EarthBound/MOTHER 2 fans: Here’s an official description of it: This very spe...Read More »

A few weeks ago I posted about some of the latest – and very unexpected – MOTHER 2 merchandise: Mr. Saturn belly warmers!
