Petitions Don’t Affect Nintendo
The other day I posted a rough screenplay version of EarthBound penned by Seth – see here. He’s since made some updates and sent me this: Hello again, thanks to the wonderful feedback I’ve recieved from the EarthBound Central community, I have been able to finnish the Second Draft of my EarthBound Screenplay faster than I previously expected. It’s still a draft, but I feel ...Read More »
Seth Campbell recently sent this to me: I wrote a perlimenary Screenplay for a potential EarthBound movie. I don’t have the rescources to PRODUCE a film. But this rough draft DOES show that Earthbound has the potential for a really great movie. Something virtualy unheard of in the world of video games. I would really appreciate feedback both from fans and people unfamiliar with EarthBound si...Read More »
A couple weeks ago I posted about an EarthBound fan film in the works, but for various reasons there was a bit of confusion because the demo reel wasn’t EarthBound-related. They’ve since released an EarthBound-related teaser video, check it out: If you want to help them out, see here! ...Read More »
Jesse sent this in recently: Hey, thought this might be of interest, It’s an EarthBound Feature length Fan-Film! My buddy and I are currently trying to fund it (we’re going to shoot it regardless of if we hit the goal but it never hurts, am I right? haha) We have an IndieGoGo set up (http://www.indiegogo.com/EarthBound-Fan-Film) and I was hoping you guys could post about it? We want ...Read More »
EarthBound fan Galena wrote a screenplay for an adaptation of EarthBound. I have yet to read through it myself, but if you’re interested, check it out here. I always find it cool when fans of anything are inspired enough to put this much work into something 😀 ...Read More »
As many probably know by now, EarthBound/MOTHER series creator Shigesato Itoi voiced a character in one of the most classic animes of all time, My Neighbor Totoro / Tonari no Totoro. I’d never seen a Youtube clip isolating just him, at least until now. So here you go, Itoi the voice actor! As we already looked at before, Itoi and Studio Ghibli (the super-famous studio that made Totoro) go w...Read More »
A recent Japanese polling site asked the question, “Which game series would you like to see get turned into a Hollywood movie?” The results were as follows: Dragon Quest Takeshi’s Challenge Metal Gear Tetris Spelunker Legend of Zelda MOTHER Phoenix Wright The Portopia Serial Murder Case Grand Theft Auto I dunno, some of those things seem pretty weird to me (Tetris?) but itR...Read More »
A neat tidbit of info, courtesy of Yannick! Apparently, the really creepy Love Walker enemy in MOTHER 3 (see here) is based on the poster for an old movie called “Cabaret“. That enemy always creeped me out, so that poster would make me more likely to vomit in terror than anything else. BTW, lame tip: if you haven’t yet, try getting it to turn around in battle. ...Read More »
Since today is Saint Patrick’s Day, let’s do something a little different! A good while back, my girlfriend and I decided for some bizarre reason to watch the movie Leprechaun. As the movie started, we noticed things that really reminded us of EarthBound stuff. As the movie went along, it sort of turned into a “hey, that’s EarthBoundy too!” game. When all was said and...Read More »
Many probably know by now that Giygas in EarthBound was partly inspired by a really old murder mystery movie. I even tracked down a copy and wrote a huge thing about it here. This afternoon, I finally got around to making a short video of stuff from the movie, mostly THE scene and some stuff that happens after. It’s like a super quick version of the movie: Title screen, movie climax, end scr...Read More »
