Unexpected Bathroom Saturn
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 »
Seokyoung contacted me to let me know that there’s now a Korean translation of MOTHER 3 out there! Here are some sample screenshots: You can find more info here and here, although I don’t actually know how to download the patch since I don’t know Korean and Google Translate doesn’t turn up any info about downloading it. If anyone can help, let me know! ...Read More »

I shared this on Twitter and EarthBound Central Live already, but this is too cool not to post on EarthBound Central itself! A while back, Peter sent me this e-mail: Hi Mato, I recently posted a teaser video for a Mother 3 Oculus Rift demo I’ve been working on for several months. Some of your viewers might be interested in watching it. The video can be found below. And here’s the video...Read More »
Yesterday we held another weekly EarthBound Central Live stream, and it was a lot of fun! We discussed a lot of the big, recent EarthBound news, then shared a lot of interesting e-mail submissions from readers. Still got almost 900 more to get through eventually! Then we did some fun Q-and-A with the chat, and after that we took a tour of Japanese MOTHER-style fan games… and even played a l...Read More »
