DragonDePlatino has released a new ROM hack for EarthBound Zero that changes the game in many neat, interesting ways!

Miles V. has been working on an EarthBound fan music album called “Moonsidian” for a while now – in fact, I briefly covered it back in 2010.

Try to guess what song it’s based off of within the ...Read More »

A couple years ago I released a program that randomizes and jumbles up the content in EarthBound so fans can play the game in entirely new ways (see here.) People find it so much fun that now there’s a content randomizer for EarthBound Zero too, courtesy of BBGangZombie! This program can randomly change a bunch of stuff in the NES EarthBound Zero ROM. For example, it will change enemies arou...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.

Longtime fans of Starmen.Net and/or EarthBound Central probably recall the name Stephen Georg/xfis – he’s the guy behind so many amazing EarthBound projects over the years. He was even part of Fobbies Are Borange, which was a radio play of EarthBound, as well as the EarthBound Zero spinoff, Loids Are Not Christmas. The thing about Loids Are Not Christmas was that Stephen hadn’t r...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.
