The guys at Fangamer recently flew to Japan for a company trip, and many Fangamer friends went along too, including good ol’ Stephen Georg (aka xfis). During the trip they visited the office of Shigesato Itoi’s company, Hobonichi. And, just as they were leaving, they encountered the man himself! Itoi posted about the encounter on Twitter too: こういうメンバーだったんで...Read More »

Yesterday I posted about how there are going to be TWO EarthBound-themed planner covers released by Shigesato Itoi’s company in the coming weeks. It turns out I was wrong – there are three! The third design is for a smaller-sized, weekly planner cover and features Mr. Saturn! And here are the other two previously-announced standard-sized planner covers for reference: Note that these...Read More »

There’s been a lot of big EarthBound series news lately, and here’s one that I’ve quickly covered on the past few live streams: a Saturn Valley-themed Hobonichi Planner cover will be released this September! Here’s a look at the current sample: Itoi’s company, Hobonichi, already released an Onett-themed cover for last year, so it looks like he’s hoping to make ...Read More »

A while ago I stumbled upon this cool image of what an EarthBound Zero Saturn Valley might look like. I’m not sure where it originated, but it looks like it was made by a Gregg Janus. Awesome work! ...Read More »

Some new official MOTHER/Mr. Saturn merchandise has been announced – a Mr. Saturn Hot Water Bottle! It looks like it also comes with a tag that has both the MOTHER 2 and MOTHER 3 logos on it. So if you’ve been lamenting the lack of official MOTHER 3 merchandise lately, here you go! Price-wise, if you buy the hot water bottle cover and the actual bottle, it’ll cost 5400 yen. If ...Read More »

A few days ago someone was like, “Hey, are you gonna stream Japanese Super Smash Bros. stuff?” and then I realized, “Hey, that comes out soon and I DO have a Japanese 3DS with capture stuff, that sounds like a cool idea!” So yesterday I streamed some of the Japanese Super Smash Bros. 3DS demo with Poe and had a lot of fun with it. While playing, we encountered a couple Eart...Read More »

Besides the Hobonichi Techo planners, Shigesato Itoi’s company also makes a popular brand of Japanese “belly warmers” in Japan. In fact, it sounds like his company is largely responsible for its renewed popularity in Japan. Anyway, I don’t know much about Japanese belly warmers, except that they’re supposedly really good at regulating body temperature, so they’...Read More »

I missed the last half of yesterday’s Smash Bros. preview video, but apparently some MOTHER series stuff was shown off or displayed in press promo images or something? In any case, here are two screenshots of MOTHER series things returning – Mr. Saturn and the Franklin Badge! If these are returning, we can probably assume other EarthBound/MOTHER stuff will be returning and/or debutin...Read More »

Joe sent me this the other day: I was at a concert on Thursday in San Francisco when I found this (see picture) in the bathroom. I got pretty excited cause I wasn’t expecting it, plus I’m hoping that there’s some awesme Earthbound-inspired band behind it. Neat! This calls for Mr. Saturn/bathroom jokes! Begin… now! ...Read More »

Back in 2011, Shigesato Itoi tweeted that a professional tennis player by the name of Kei Nishikori carried around a Mr. Saturn plush for good luck. I had missed that tweet, but Jack W. posted on the EarthBound Central Facebook page about it showing up on the Tennis Channel recently, so I did a quick search and found it here! I guess he doesn’t know it’s called a Mr. Saturn in English...Read More »
