Ports, Remakes, or Sequels?
I shared this on a past EarthBound Central Live, but it’s too good not to share here! This is a cover of the Sound Stone music from EarthBound, with some new lyrics added: The musician also added this info in the description: Earthbound is my favorite RPG of all time. By sheer chance I came into posession of a copy when I was about 9 years old and the impact the game had on me was immeasura...Read More »
I shared this on EarthBound Central Live the other day, but it turned out to be too cool not to post here! Pishi sent this in a good while ago: Hi ‘Mato! I found this very good rendition of the two Earthbound themes. Unfortunately I don’t know much about the band. And here’s the video: The first part is Fourside’s music, and the second part is Twoson’s. You can skip ...Read More »

The other day I posted a video of a really cool live cover of an EarthBound battle song (see here). Well, there’s a new one out! I always felt this particular battle music seemed the least game-like and that it could fit in other stuff really well. So it’s great to hear it played live like this outside of the game 😀 ...Read More »
The other day there was an official MOTHER 2 live concert held on Shigesato Itoi’s site. Most of us missed it because of time zone differences and because we didn’t know about it. But luckily JB2448 was able to get ahold of the recorded videos and post them on YouTube: I’m not sure if that’s all of them or not, but it’s nice to actually have something now 😀 Also, ...Read More »
