Over on the EarthBound Reddit, TJourney noticed that this educational (and/or religious?) video series called “Active Learning” features a sudden, short bit of music from EarthBound: Man, this video is so cheesy. I thought it was from the late 80s at first, what with those sweaters and all, but the EarthBound music definitely places it in the mid-90s. I guess maybe lame educational vi...Read More »
A few years ago I posted about a really cool EarthBound-themed Flash animation that was in the works, and it’s finally reached completion! Check it out here: It’s been in the works a long time, and the wait was worth it! Excellent stuff! ...Read More »
To celebrate Nintendo’s 125th anniversary, IGN recently played a bunch of games and posted videos of them on YouTube. Here’s a look at their short MOTHER 3 video! Since they’re a big player in the industry they don’t use the translation patch, but they do discuss the fan translation and a number of other things. Also, holy crap, MOTHER 3 is already over 8 years old now ...Read More »
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 »

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 »
- Dragonwarriorquestsagain: @hyperstar96 It’s not that they know nothing; they just don’t care. Why would they care? Are they afraid of...
- Leeaux: @Hyperstar96 I own both of them. Because it seems like a large amount of of the stages are from older games. But it’s probably...
- Hyperstar96: And thus Smash 4 continues the ongoing tradition of Nintendo knowing almost nothing about Mother. Don’t you all remember how...
- Anton: Man, Imagine if there were a remake of EB where the rest of the game looked this good.
- Leeaux: Well, strangely enough. Onett is the only Earthbound stage in the game. Even after they crafted that wonderful Magicant on the 3ds version....
