Tips for Buying EarthBound

January 15th, 2009 | EarthBound, Images, Uncommon Knowledge

Not many people know this, but inside Nintendo of America, all the conference rooms are named after stuff having to do with Nintendo games. They’re just names given to the rooms, they’re not themed or anything. But because of this, there actually exists an EarthBound room inside NOA!

I know Jonk’s been in there before, and I can’t remember for sure, but I think he might’ve been there a second time when he and reid and everyone else visited Nintendo last year (see here). I wonder if any EarthBound related stuff ever actually happened in there.

Anyway, I heard from someone who knew someone who ate someone that when they were opening another office down in California recently, they did a poll for new conference room names. I don’t know what was suggested and what won, but I wonder if anyone suggested any EarthBound stuff. That’d be cool if there was a Lucas room. Maybe even a Doria room would be cool 😛

Woah. Even if there is the possibility that nothing concerning Earthbound ever happened there, it’s nice to know that at least it was considerated. :DD

Ok thats good. Now all we need now is a Mother 3 Room.

gBev said on Jan. 15, 2009

Well, at least we know that they recognize the game’s existence. In all reality, this room has probably been there for years, it’s not going to mean anything. But man, reading that newsroom post makes me miss starmen.net…

Still it’s cool to know they actually have a room called EarthBound.

Rufus said on Jan. 15, 2009

Wow. The room, and the trip to NoA, are both amazing.

Deiphobus said on Jan. 15, 2009

i think i would be freaked out if Doria was there

ChickenHunter said on Jan. 16, 2009

How dusty do you think it is in there?

Mikhail said on Jan. 16, 2009

They probably clean it! 😛

Hopefully it’ll be used one day.

Difegue said on Jan. 16, 2009

Psychomax said on Jan. 16, 2009

Ironically, this is the room they were in when they decided to release Magical Starsign in America

We passed by this conference room during our visit to the NoA HQ. Didn’t go in, but we did stand around outside the door and gawk at it’s awesome name. It’s nice to know that EarthBound has some kind of presence there.

Leirin said on Jan. 16, 2009

I am finally happy.
Maybe there’s hope? I dunno. I wonder what’s in that room….

Plo said on Jan. 17, 2009

They said some horrible meeting happened in there, so nobody likes to go inside of it anymore.

shadowdeku said on Jan. 17, 2009

Wow, I’m surprised NOA didn’t beat you for taking that picture, considering how it seems like they’re trying to zone out Earthbound altogether.

Slagy said on Jan. 25, 2009

I doubt anyone from NoA has ever been in there.

MaskedMan said on Feb. 26, 2009

Thats awsome to know that NoA has a room called EarthBound even though they dont like hearing the name.

neonix said on Mar. 9, 2009

Surprising seeing as how much NoA neglects EarthBound.

wants_latios_lots said on Mar. 18, 2009

Aaaaand the room is empty and abandoned.

DanteAMD said on Mar. 28, 2009

Object Replacement Teddybear said on Jul. 16, 2009

Why, that must be the room that Reggie throws darts at.

DrPepper42 said on Aug. 27, 2009

Or maybe it’s the one where he puts all the ignored EB-related things sent to him.

i feel your pain

FuzzyPicklez said on Jun. 17, 2010

Stop saying NoA hates EarthBound. They don’t hate it, they just don’t care for it.

And, it would be cool if there was a SNES and a TV so people could play EarthBound in there.

TMF128 said on Jun. 17, 2010

That room is haunted, that is why nobody goes in there.

GoldenEevee said on Jun. 22, 2010

Meanwhile the Pokemon room across the hallway is always full………..

Aralia said on Aug. 26, 2010

Gotta love the fact that they bring over all kinds of games that sell decent… and they are sitting on a gold mine…
old fans, smash bros fans, and new-comers all would buy any earthbound game released.. either to relive, see their characters roots, or to just give a new game a shot… that’s literally millions of dollars nintendo doesn’t care about..
But since pokemon is more marketable… that gets 3 versions per iteration…. good job nintendo… ignore your dedicated fans and go try to get new ones… when the old ones abandon you don’t come crying back to us…

Gronush said on Dec. 5, 2010

That’s cool but they should name a helicopter or plane after earthbound

PSI rockin' said on Jan. 30, 2011

You know, if, one day, a Mother 1+2+3 room shows up, I shall party, like there is no tommorow

PornoStarFromLA said on Dec. 20, 2011

Pretty cool. They probably have Master Belch locked up in there.

BigDream said on Dec. 29, 2011

Nintendo’s just mocking us.

Earth Saturn said on Mar. 17, 2012

Haha. That’s cool. But I wouldn’t be surprised if this room was the least used in NoA’s HQ.

AshBound said on Jun. 19, 2012

I bet Reggie’s never been in there hahahaha.

Matteomax said on Dec. 29, 2012

Don’t. go. in. there.

Or else Reggie will use PK GTFO on you.

Just call me daddy! said on Jan. 7, 2013
