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 »

Tyler sent this in a while back: Hello Tomato, I work at the children’s library in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. Awhile back I sent you a message about a toy theatre adaptation I’m putting together of Mother 1 and though I’ve still got a lot of work to do, it’s coming along well. Toy theatre is basically a small table-top puppet show usually done with paper cutouts. Once up...Read More »

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. It’s nearing a release now, so here’s a quick preview of a few of the tracks! And here’s a preview of one of the tracks, called “Instinct of the West”.

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. I don’t know the source of these or if they’re even legitimate, but I thought I might share them anyway since they look pretty cool regardless: In EarthBound Zero, this name was actually localized to “PsychoCar” to av...Read More »
