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-1 { margin: auto; } #gallery-1 .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 »

For the last two years, Hobonichi has released MOTHER-themed planner covers and related merchandise, including an Onett cover and a Saturn Valley cover. It looks like another set is planned for 2017, based on this teaser announcement. The announcement includes three small, cropped images: Show » So it seems like there’ll be at least a Winters cover and a Magicant cover. Of course...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 »

A possible EarthBound prototype sold on eBay UK yesterday for £200, which is about $350 in US dollars at the moment. And here are the photos that were included: This isn’t the first time something like this has popped up – another one also sold on eBay UK in 2009 for $584. I’m not sure if this is the same one or not, but the one in 2009 had EEPROM stickers while yesterday...Read More »
