The first translation was headed by Snifit, and you can find more info, download information, and such here. Here are screenshots of Snifit’s project in action: Next is a translation by lorenzooone. You can read more about it and download the files here. Here are screenshots of lorenzo...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 »
Satoru Iwata passed away recently at the age of 55. Not only was he the president of Nintendo, but he also saved MOTHER 2/EarthBound from cancellation by reprogramming most of the game, he was in charge of the Nintendo 64 version of MOTHER 3, and he was also there when the decision was made to make MOTHER 3 a Game Boy Advance game. Mr. Iwata played a big role in it all. This series, this site, our...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 »
A few weeks ago I posted about an amazing version of Pollyanna doing in an Onett style (see here) and now Nelward Music has done a new one – the MOTHER 3 Love Theme done in a Fourside style! I do remember the very first time I heard the MOTHER 3 Love Theme (from here, in fact) and was confused because the first few notes started to sound like Fourside’s music. Now it’s all come ...Read More »
A good while back, I posted about how ROM hackers managed to extract MOTHER 3’s music data in a way that removes the “fuzziness” of playing it on the Game Boy Advance. You can read all about that here. Anyway, there used to be a big torrent file with all this music, but it’s since disappeared. So a reader named Jaco sent this in a while back: I searched the site and found a...Read More »
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 »
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 »
The other day I posted about MOTHER 3 and EarthBound stuff mods for Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Now a new fan creation now allows Lucas to do the Wess dance from MOTHER 3 as a taunt! The taunt seems to have offensive capabilities too, although the dance is so long that I wonder if it’s actually useful for normal battle situations. Here’s a better look at Lucas doing the dance, too: I se...Read More »
In a recent interview with Kotaku, Reggie Fils-Aime discussed the EarthBound series – and MOTHER 3 – a little bit more! Here are key snippets from it: Fils-Aime, in reference to MOTHER 3: “Look, again, I think this is an example that demonstrates we’re constantly listening. We’re hearing what the fans say. And we thought it was great to bring back the very first Mother, Eart...Read More »
- Ballz: It was a typo and they’ve since fixed it on their site.
- Mato: Anonymous: I don’t know, I only know that 逆修 is related to Buddhist stuff, I’m not sure of the details. My guess is that...
- Anonymous: Shouldn’t it be 逆襲 or is 逆修 a Japanese pun or something?
- mrsaturn123: Managed to get my copy in the black and red variant. So happy about that cause I missed out all the cool colors for the Mother 1 LP....
- Sat: I’m lucky I got the Giygas version in time :3
