The very latest Wario Ware game for the DS came out in Japan like a day or two ago. The cool thing about this latest installment is that you can create your own minigames and share them with people. You can see this here. Anyway, I bring this up because Starmen.Net visitor LeonardoGolden imported the game and immediately made an EarthBound-themed mini-game. Well, technically, EarthBound Zero I gue...Read More »

A recent Japanese polling site asked the question, “Which game series would you like to see get turned into a Hollywood movie?” The results were as follows: Dragon Quest Takeshi’s Challenge Metal Gear Tetris Spelunker Legend of Zelda MOTHER Phoenix Wright The Portopia Serial Murder Case Grand Theft Auto I dunno, some of those things seem pretty weird to me (Tetris?) but itR...Read More »

Yesterday I saw that a brand-new, unopened copy of EarthBound showed up on eBay. Check it out here! It’s funny, because just a few days ago we looked at an article about how EarthBound is worth a small fortune. Astute readers might also remember the last time an item like this went on eBay a few months ago: see here. That copy turned out NOT to be new and unopened, but it still sold for qui...Read More »

The other day, Mashi let me know about an EarthBound remix CD called “Go! Go! Starman – Part 1”. Like the MOTHER +Love CDs, this is fan-made. But, unlike those ones, you can actually acquire this one, for only $5. Here’s an MP3 that has short bits from each track (download here): Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Downlo...Read More »

Came across this very recent video of someone opening up bootleg EarthBound Zero and California Raisins NES cartridges. All the ethical/moral/legal stuff aside, these bootleg EarthBound Zero carts (which I often see on eBay for $100-$150) can have this happen to them at certain parts of the game. usually at events near the end of the game, so it’s not obvious right away if it’s going ...Read More »

This week turned out to be a slower one than I expected, but I guess it’s crazy to expect a lot to constantly go on in the EarthBound world 😛 Probably the two big things this week were MOTHER 3’s third year anniversary and the discussion between Itoi and Iwata about early ideas for MOTHER 3. Right now, I don’t see any other big news on the horizon, but let’s hope that so...Read More »

The Destructoid folks have always been big proponents of the EarthBound series, so I thought I’d mention quickly that later today their RetroforceGO! podcast thingy is all about EarthBound and the MOTHER games. So keep your eyes and ears peeled for it! 😀 See here! ...Read More »
