MOTHER 3 was released on the Japanese Wii U Virtual Console last year but no one really knew if it had undergone any changes from its original Game Boy Advance release. That changed last month, when some of the EarthBound hacker guys and I finally got to dig into the new game’s data! In all, it appears that three small changes were made. The programming code that makes these changes work wer...Read More »

Nintendo is holding a sale on a lot of Wii U games, including EarthBound for the Virtual Console! For the next few days it’s reduced to $6.99 from its usual price of $9.99. I don’t play my Wii U very much so I don’t know if it’s possible to gift games to friends. But if you can, this could be a good time to do it. If not, then it’s still a good time to buy the game ...Read More »

Japanese fans are now able to buy the entire series on the Wii U: The MOTHER 3 Miiverse is also filled with lots of cool posts and drawings from Japanese fans. Fans outside of Japan have also taken to asking for a localized rel...Read More »

You might’ve seen the English-language promo video for EarthBound Beginnings already, but if you haven’t, here it is: And here’s a look at the Japanese promo video, which I’d never seen before until now: Which one do you like better?

In a recent interview with Kotaku, Reggie Fils-Aime discussed the EarthBound series – and MOTHER 3 – a little bit more! Here are key snippets from it: Fils-Aime, in reference to MOTHER 3: “Look, again, I think this is an example that demonstrates we’re constantly listening. We’re hearing what the fans say. And we thought it was great to bring back the very first Mother, Eart...Read More »

I shared this on last night’s Earthbound Central Live stream, but here it is again: EarthBound Beginnings has reached #1 on the Wii U’s recent sales rankings! It almost feels surreal to see a two decade-old, previously-unreleased NES game dethroning a completely brand-new Nintendo IP. Is this real life? The above picture is from the North American Wii U sales charts, but EarthBound Be...Read More »

EarthBound Beginnings was released a few days ago on Wii Us outside of Japan, and it appears to be the exact same as the NES ROM that leaked years and years ago, with no known changes. The Japanese version was also released on Japanese Wii Us… but it HAS had some changes. There isn’t a full list of what changes exist in the Japanese version so far, but they seem to be in line with some...Read More »

A lot happened yesterday! The super-big news is that the game before EarthBound – which most of us call EarthBound Zero – has been officially released in English on the Wii U Virtual Console! The game costs $6.99 in the U.S. and £6.29 in the UK, I’m not sure what it costs in other regions, though. The game appears to be exactly the same as the prototype ROM that we’re all ...Read More »

A couple fans have recently let me know that EarthBound has sold out on the Club Nintendo system. Here’s some info from J64: EarthBound was offered as one of the final Club Nintendo rewards with a price of 250 coins. Recently, it seems as though they ran out of stock. I guess they pre-allocate a certain number of download codes for each game, because I can think of no other way for a digit...Read More »
