Brian Connor (aka level 1 chef) and friends have been planning the ultimate MOTHER series cookbook for some time, and now it’s about to become a reality! They posted a Kickstarter for the project yesterday, and it’s already about to hit its initial goal. Here are some sample pics: The project has some stretch goals too: I’m particularly looking forward to the Moonside reci...Read More »

Each year, there seems to be more and more EarthBound (well, MOTHER 2) merchandise in the Hobonichi Planner shop. This year there are four new covers for the original A6 planner, a new Weeks cover, and a Mr. Saturn card case: #gallery-1 { margin: auto; } #gallery-1 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-1 img...Read More »

EarthBound on Super NES Classic Mini The rumors came true – Nintendo is releasing a Super NES counterpart to the NES Classic Mini. It’s going to have a bunch of classic SNES games… including EarthBound! It’s also going to feature Starfox 2, which should be really in...Read More »

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 »

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 »

A reader named Ed sent me some scans of MOTHER series articles from a Korean gaming magazine called “Game Champ”. I don’t speak or read Korean, but it’s still cool to see all of this. It looks like they even gave MOTHER 2 a pretty good review score! #gallery-2 { margin: auto; } #gallery-2 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align...Read More »

I’ve been going through lots of old game magazines lately for my Legends of Localization work, and there’s a lot of old MOTHER 2 info in there. I cover a lot of it in my EarthBound book but here’s something that I found in a magazine I got last week: (Click for larger pic) This was from April 1994, about four months before MOTHER 2 was on store shelves. Almost every screenshot h...Read More »

Back in January, a fan named Ellie transcribed EarthBound Beginnings’ full soundtrack (see here). Ellie’s been working hard since then, though, and has done a transcription of EarthBound’s soundtrack too, which is no easy feat – it’s nearly 200 pieces of music! Here’s a list of the transcribed music: You can download the sheet music PDF and other related files ...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 »
