A few months ago I posted about a new set of MOTHER 2 capsule toy figures that was set to be released later in the year… and now is later in the year! The MOTHER 2 Stand Figures are available now in Japan, eBay, and elsewhere: More recently, a set of MOTHER 2 keychains/charms was announced – these ones use the ghost/fainted sprites of all the main characters. A more rare one is when y...Read More »

Some new official MOTHER/Mr. Saturn merchandise has been announced – a Mr. Saturn Hot Water Bottle! It looks like it also comes with a tag that has both the MOTHER 2 and MOTHER 3 logos on it. So if you’ve been lamenting the lack of official MOTHER 3 merchandise lately, here you go! Price-wise, if you buy the hot water bottle cover and the actual bottle, it’ll cost 5400 yen. If ...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! To try to help explain what these are, why Itoi’s company is selling them, and how to order them, good ol’ Chewy made a page full of info: What’s a Haramaki and Why is Mario On It? If you’re on the fence because you’re worried it won...Read More »

Some new official MOTHER 2 merchandise was recently announced – five different “Stand Figures” that are being released later this year! The figures include: Ness Paula Jeff Poo Mr. Saturn They’re apparently large in size (2 to 2.5 inches in height it sounds like) and come with the MOTHER 2 logo on their stands.

Besides the Hobonichi Techo planners, Shigesato Itoi’s company also makes a popular brand of Japanese “belly warmers” in Japan. In fact, it sounds like his company is largely responsible for its renewed popularity in Japan. Anyway, I don’t know much about Japanese belly warmers, except that they’re supposedly really good at regulating body temperature, so they’...Read More »

A number of prototype EarthBound Zero cartridges have been floating around for years (details here) but recently the authenticity of some of them has come into question. So Sith, Stevesesy, and others have been doing some detective work over the past few months. I’m still not caught up with all the details about this, but most recently they got in contact with Andrew DeRouin, the owner of th...Read More »

I recently stumbled upon this video with Pat the NES Punk in it that touches on a weird story about eBay and a seller with 30 suspicious EarthBound cartridges. If you haven’t heard of this before, here’s the video (strong language warning, BTW): Somehow this story sounds familiar but it’s a fuzzy, hazy memory to me. If anyone has more details, lemme know in the comments! (Knowin...Read More »
