Jared Claybrooks recently posted a new animation – this one features Ness locked in battle with the Titanic Ant: I really like the fast-paced, over-the-top style of the video, and in many ways it reminds me of an old EarthBound fan comic series, EBZ. In any case, it’s clear a ton of time and dedication went into the animation! If you’ve missed them, Jared has made a few other MO...Read More »

A bunch of EarthBound things have happened lately, so here’s a quick look at some of them! Lasgna Cat is back, and one of the short episodes featured some MOTHER 3 stuff: One of those super-rare MOTHER 2 jackets went up for auction in Japan. The starting bid of $2000 scared everyone away, though, so it went without any bids at all. A semi-rare EarthBound ruler hit eBay and eventually sold...Read More »

I just recently learned that there’s a neat YouTube channel dedicated to showing off things that you can’t normally see in video games, and the most recent video is about EarthBound! Check it out here: The video covers all sorts of things using the walk through walls code, as well as some unused content and some battle stuff. I especially like how it shows how the game’s maps we...Read More »

Jammy sent in a video that shows off a fan-made recipe for the Pork Noodles food item that appears in MOTHER 3: I’m not a very good cook but I this seems enough for even me to try! You can also find other game and pop culture-themed recipes on Jammy’s YouTube page here. If you have any EarthBound/MOTHER recipes of your own, share them in the comments! I once made some Giygas cookies&#...Read More »

The crazy idea I had for years is finally real: I wrote a book about EarthBound’s localization, and it released yesterday! If you’ve visited my old MOTHER 2/EarthBound comparison site in the past, you know a lot of work into it. Even so, I threw almost everything out and started from scratch this time, researching new topics, discovering new things, and interviewing key people. The re...Read More »

About five years ago, a Japanese Nintendo fan named Pikosaru made EarthBound-style sprites out of many Nintendo characters and recreated EarthBound’s cast roll scene with them. Pikosaru has since updated the project with many new characters from many new games, both new and old. Check out the latest version: You can also visit Pikosaru’s website here, where you can scroll them all the...Read More »

A video game collector recently found a complete, like-new copy of EarthBound at a swap meet. The discovery was a nice surprise – it wasn’t immediately visible and was in a box of a bunch of unrelated junk. In the end, he only paid $10 for what sometimes sells for $1000 or more on eBay. (For more EarthBound price info see here) Also of particular interest to me is the Best Buy sticker...Read More »

MOTHER 3 was released on the Japanese Wii U Virtual Console last year but no one really knew if it had undergone any changes from its original Game Boy Advance release. That changed last month, when some of the EarthBound hacker guys and I finally got to dig into the new game’s data! In all, it appears that three small changes were made. The programming code that makes these changes work wer...Read More »

A new Kirby game was recently released, and one of Kirby’s powers involves ESP. Kirby’s appearance and the ability’s description clearly refer to Ness: This isn’t the first time Kirby and EarthBound have teamed up, here’s an old video I made years ago: Thanks to everyone who sent in info about this new connection! ...Read More »

A Japanese game music fan by the name of keN Matsu recently hooked up a MIDI keyboard to a Super Famicom and showed off what it can do. He uses it to play a bunch of different music samples from Super Famicom/Super NES games, including Super Mario World, Final Fantasy IV, MOTHER 2, and more: After showing off the samples, he then re-creates actual songs from the game by playing multiple recording...Read More »
