A couple weeks back I posted on Twitter about how an unusual copy of MOTHER 2 was uncovered. The details of where it came from are unknown – in fact, the only reason it was posted online was so that the owner could try to learn more about it. It looks like it’s the same sort of unusual cartridge used in competitions like Nintendo PowerFest 94 and in other similar situations: #g...Read More »
A couple readers let me know yesterday that the Too Many Games convention being held this weekend has a very strong EarthBound theme to it! In fact, the website itself is EarthBound themed right now: And here are some photos from the event itself that people have sent my way: Cool stuff! It’s a fun time to be a fan – EarthBound stuff seems to be going on everywhere lately! ...Read More »
Over on the Pixel Paint Miiverse, StarmanAlx posted three renditions of what EarthBound Beginnings might’ve looked like as a Game Boy game: I’m always amazed at how Miiverse artists can draw with such fine detail! Is there some sort of special way to draw pixel art like this, or is it all just using a steady hand? In any case, great work StarmanAlx! …Now I wonder if any Game B...Read More »
A few months ago I posted about an official MOTHER 2 New Year’s Card that a few staff members received back in 1995. I had never heard of the card before then, and all we had was a sort of blurry photo: A few fans were like, “Hey, maybe we should try to remake that ourselves!” And then MightyYT went and did just that: And here it is translated into English based on my translati...Read More »
A while back, Liz Kirby e-mailed me about custom-made, EarthBound-themed wedding invitations! Hello! My fiancee and I are both diehard fans of EarthBound, so of course we had to have something EarthBound-related for our wedding! I thought I’d share with you our EarthBound wedding invitations. Each one was made by hand, “pixel” by “pixel.” It took a lot of time and en...Read More »
Tyler sent this in a while back: Hello Tomato, I work at the children’s library in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. Awhile back I sent you a message about a toy theatre adaptation I’m putting together of Mother 1 and though I’ve still got a lot of work to do, it’s coming along well. Toy theatre is basically a small table-top puppet show usually done with paper cutouts. Once up...Read More »
Some nice-quality pics of Ness and other EarthBound things were recently posted on the official Super Smash Bros. site – you can check them all out here! Here are two of them that I like: It looks like Onett is back! Thanks to everyone who sent in news about these pics! ...Read More »
A while back, Buck Fever sent me this: So I was looking at images of Giygas from the final battle of EarthBound and I noticed that the main image of the screaming skull thing looked odd, so I rotated it 180 degrees and I noticed a similarity between the image and Giygas/Giegue’s sprite in MOTHER: My friend Dan, SgtTyrefell on twitter, went in and tinkered with the image, removing excess ...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 »
- DJ: From what I’ve gathered I’m pretty sure he still writes copy, so they’re an ad company.
- cosmodos: What does his company even do? Is it actually lucrative? From what I can gather (not knowing Japanese), it’s just his blog, and he...

- Leeaux: Hey I just saw this! Really interesting watch to. Lots of little fun facts.
- Mary: The “behind the scenes” video on how the Ness animation was made is great too. The animators channel is A + Start.
