The crazy idea I had for years is finally real: I wrote a book about EarthBound’s localization, and it released yesterday! If you’ve visited my old MOTHER 2/EarthBound comparison site in the past, you know a lot of work into it.

A while back, TragicManner sent me this e-mail about a new translation patch for EarthBound: So, ShadowOne333 just finished his translation of EarthBound in LatAm Spanish the other day.

There are multiple debug menus hidden in EarthBound, and the big one that lets you do all sorts of cool stuff has always been full of gibberish: In actuality, this gibberish is just Japanese text, written phonetically in English, with most vowels removed. My interest in this weird menu is actually what led me to join the EarthBound community back in 1998, so it’s always been something I enj...Read More »
