A while back, a fan named Ellie sent me an e-mail out of the blue: Hi! I just wanted to tell you that I’ve recently made a transcription of Earthbound Beginnings’ entire soundtrack for sheet music! Attached was a fancy 88-page PDF file with a ton of sheet music! You can download the full PDF here! ...Read More »

A while back I posted about new MOTHER 1/EarthBound Beginnings straps that were planned to be released in Japan. Well, it’s getting pretty close to release time – it sounds like they’ll become available in Japanese capsule machines sometime this week or next week. If you’re not in Japan, though, don’t worry! I’m sure they’ll be all over eBay and elsewher...Read More »

Last night was Monday, which meant a new edition of EarthBound Central Live! We did a lot last night, we talked about recent EarthBound news -including Satoru Iwata’s passing, we shared e-mails and submissions from EarthBound Central viewers, and we played more of my new creation: Twitch vs. EarthBound! We also held a Q&A session during Twitch vs. EarthBound, but there were so many que...Read More »

A fellow named RandomAnon sent me an interesting e-mail recently – probably the earliest-known English review or mention of MOTHER 1 has been unearthed! So, this might not be worthy of being featured on EBC, but I thought it was really cool nonetheless. So there was a thread on 4chan’s retro games board about old-video game related Usenet (now Google Groups) posts and one anon found th...Read More »

Last night we held another EarthBound Central Live stream, and it was a fun one! We talked about so many different things and laughed at a lot of silly moments, it was great. If you missed it, don’t worry – you can check out the archive on YouTube here! As always, the Q&A session covered so many topics that it would be too much for me to list them all, but here are all the other ...Read More »

You might’ve seen the English-language promo video for EarthBound Beginnings already, but if you haven’t, here it is: And here’s a look at the Japanese promo video, which I’d never seen before until now: Which one do you like better?

We held another EarthBound Central Live stream last night, and it was lots of fun! If you missed it, don’t worry – you can now watch it on YouTube here! There was almost an unintended theme to this episode – lots of fans had sent in e-mails about reproduction cartridges, how to spot legitimate EarthBound cartridges, EarthBound prototype cartridges, EarthBound Zero prototype cart...Read More »

Over on the Pixel Paint Miiverse, StarmanAlx posted three renditions of what EarthBound Beginnings might’ve looked like as a Game Boy game: I’m always amazed at how Miiverse artists can draw with such fine detail! Is there some sort of special way to draw pixel art like this, or is it all just using a steady hand? In any case, great work StarmanAlx! …Now I wonder if any Game B...Read More »

A few days ago we had another EarthBound Central Live stream, but so much has been EarthBound stuff has happening that I haven’t had time to talk about it until now! One of the big highlights was the second half of the stream, when we started playing the Japanese Wii U version of MOTHER to see how it’s different from the Famicom version, the GBA version, AND the English version. ItR...Read More »
