Weekly Round-Up #19
The full version of the Japanese Super Smash Bros. 3DS came out the other day, so the Internet’s been abuzz with all sorts of info about it. Luckily, I had a Japanese 3DS and a capture thingy, so I was able to live-stream a bunch of it too! In particular, I was looking for EarthBound-related content to share here on EB Central… and it didn’t take very long until I ran into Ness! ...Read More »
During the night, the Internet exploded with videos and pics from the full version of Super Smash Bros. 3DS, including lots of EarthBound-related material. I haven’t had time to sit down and compile it all, but the big news is that Ness is in the game… as well as Magicant and a bunch of other stuff! I’m hoping to get the game tomorrow and get all sorts of pics and videos of my o...Read More »
A few days ago someone was like, “Hey, are you gonna stream Japanese Super Smash Bros. stuff?” and then I realized, “Hey, that comes out soon and I DO have a Japanese 3DS with capture stuff, that sounds like a cool idea!” So yesterday I streamed some of the Japanese Super Smash Bros. 3DS demo with Poe and had a lot of fun with it. While playing, we encountered a couple Eart...Read More »
A few years ago I released a ROM patch that translates the MOTHER 1 part of the GBA MOTHER 1+2 release – you can check it out here. After releasing it, I got a lot of questions about translating the MOTHER 2 side too, but I explained that it would take a LOT of time and work and that I’d prefer to let someone else take on the challenge. For the past few years since that post, an EarthB...Read More »
A few years back, OKeijiDragon started working on a documentary video series about big-name video games that wound up canceled. The first video was to be about MOTHER 3 (particularly the Nintendo 64 version)… and the 2012 work-in-progress version of the video is now available for all to see! The video is really information-dense and uses on-screen text rather than a narrator, so it’s ...Read More »
For years Jeffman and I have worked on-and-off putting together the next version of the MOTHER 3 translation patch – mostly fixing existing bugs, glitches, typos, and such. Before releasing the new version 1.2 patch, though, we need to test it out all the way through to make sure stuff hasn’t broken… and I had an almost spur-of-the-moment idea to stream it live while testing it....Read More »
Nintendo’s digital E3 event is today, and it kicked off with a joke about Reggie and fans wanting a MOTHER 3 translation: The joke’s gotten a lot of mixed reactions from fans, it’s fascinating to watch! I’m still just amazed that the game was mentioned in any way ...Read More »
Way back during the MOTHER 3 fan translation, I was always coming across lines of text that I never recognized or map locations that I never saw in the actual game. I’ve showcased some of these in past updates, and here’s a small bit to add to that list: Thanks to birby100 for documenting these! If you ever get bored and want to peek at MOTHER 3’s script, I posted the text block...Read More »
