Last year there were a bunch of games announced that looked like EarthBound and MOTHER 3 in various ways. It was easy to mix up which was which, so I thought I’d make things a little more clear here. I’ve also provided a few new screenshots whenever possible. Obviously, these games aren’t related to EarthBound or the MOTHER games except for the artwork. But since people send news...Read More »

Remember that upcoming Japanese game for the ROID service that looks a lot like EarthBound? If you don’t, see here. As you may or may not recall, it turned out to be a cell phone version of Level 5’s “The Another World”.

As we already looked at before, Itoi and Studio Ghibli (the super-famous studio that made Totoro) go w...Read More »

Since we’re already on the subject of Itoi and Studio Ghibli (see here), I thought I’d go into a little more detail about their connection. In the offchance you’ve never heard of Studio Ghibli or Hayao Miyazaki, see here. Just know that they’re like THE ultimate Japanese animation company, akin to Disney here I suppose. Anyway, first and most well-known outside of Japan is ...Read More »

A few folks have pointed out that the character in the latest mystery screenshot is probably based on another Level 5 production called “The Another World“. Again, here’s the recent screenshot we’ve all been pondering about: And here are some images of the “The Another World” character taken from here: The pics you see above are meant for the DS version of th...Read More »
