I got a message on Twitter from an EarthBound fan named Adam the other day: @ClydeMandelin I posted a link to the Mother 3 translation page on Miiverse, and got a warning that it was related to "criminal activity". — Adam L. Welsh (@AwelCruiz) April 10, 2015 And he then sent some photos of the messages and warnings involved: Apparently this isn’t just a MOTHER 3-only thi...Read More »

A little while ago, Derrek sent me this e-mail: I dont know if this would interest you. but its been a real treat for me so far so i thought i’d share. A miiverse user by the name of moldyclay has been drawing out his entire adventure of earthbound so far. His posts have been criminally overlooked it seems so I thought i’d point the community in his direction You can check out MoldyCla...Read More »

Meleentalist mentioned this on Twitter: someone messed up for the EarthBound 3DS Miiverse banner. Didn’t know we had two EarthBounds on NES. As you can see, up in the corner it says “Nintendo Entertainment System”… which isn’t right at all! I was skeptical at first, like, “Nah, there’s no way this is real. If it’s real Nintendo would’ve fixed ...Read More »

Back when MOTHER 2 was released on the Japanese Wii U Virtual Console I made a few videos showing what the Japanese Miiverse communities were like. Now that EarthBound has been released, I’ve gotten a few requests that I make a video of the EarthBound Miiverse stuff, so here you go! (Don’t mind the Japanese stuff everywhere, it’s because I have a Japanese Wii U) It’s been ...Read More »

A couple people have pointed out that there’s now a new Miiverse community called “Onett Times” that’s supposed to be like a developer’s room. #gallery-1 { margin: auto; } #gallery-1 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-1 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-1...Read More »

Until now, you needed a Wii U to check out stuff on the Wii U Miiverse. Nintendo has recently made it accessible via web browsers, though, so you can check out what people are posting! You can check out some MOTHER 2 Miiverse stuff here. The problem is that that link only seems to show a few posts from the “Popular Posts” section – if you check on an actual Wii U you’ll se...Read More »

The other day I posted about how Shigesato Itoi thanked overseas fans in English on the MOTHER 2 Miiverse. Fans have responded with hundreds of messages of gratitude, so I thought it would be nice to share a video of them for folks who don’t have Wii Us: I gotta say, when they announced that Itoi would have his own Miiverse community and that he’d post stuff sometimes, I never, ever i...Read More »

The MOTHER 2 Revival Festival is now over in Japan, and MOTHER 2 is no longer available on the Japanese Wii U Virtual Console. Although I’m sure it’ll be back soon enough at its normal price. Anyway, because of this, Itoi started posting some messages about the festival coming to a close. For lunch I had scallop porridge. I just had a Japanese rice cracker. People can tell when yo...Read More »

On the MOTHER 2 Miiverse, Shigesato Itoi posted the following message in English: Dear Earthbound/MOTHER2 fans outside of Japan : Thank you for all the requests. They made me very happy. Now with the re-launch, I am looking forward to meet new friends. Potential!! He’s also made a few more Miiverse posts talking about what he’s eaten and marking the end of the Revival Festival. I̵...Read More »

EarthBound was announced for the Wii U Virtual Console outside of Japan yesterday, and there was much rejoicing! I’ve gotten a lot of tweets, e-mails, messages, and questions elsewhere that I thought might be good to share here, so I’ll post a few of them today and maybe some more later on when I have more time. So let’s get to it! EarthBound Prices A lot of people have been aski...Read More »
