Tips for Buying EarthBound

June 17th, 2010 | EarthBound, Rumors

Today I suddenly started getting a lot of e-mails from folks about stuff at E3. I’ve been wary of posting it since I can’t confirm anything, so take all of this with many grains of salt.

The first tidbit comes from Infendo – there’s apparently a door near Nintendo’s booth at E3 that says “Dr. Andonuts” on it for some reason:

If anyone is at E3, can you confirm/deny? If it’s there, it’s possible it’s just named that for no real reason, kind of like how this room is named.

Next is this image that’s been making the rounds for weeks now. I put absolutely no stock in it, but enough people have been mailing me about it that I’ll just mention it briefly. I could swear someone admitted to making it as a joke a while back, or maybe that was a different one. Anyway:

I haven’t been following E3 much this year, I get the feeling most of that list is already wrong though.

If anyone finds more info to confirm or deny any of this stuff, let me know! And don’t forget to check out the prize-filled EarthBound playthrough going on right now!

when it says “Earthbound: re-entry” does re-entry mean remake?

Umbreonic said on Jun. 17, 2010

Obviously we’re supposedto wait 3 minutes outside that door

Kendall said on Jun. 17, 2010

I think @Umbreonic is right.

I’m more excited for Luigi’s Pie Factory honestly.

conn3r said on Jun. 17, 2010

^ get out 😛

Chas Guidry said on Jun. 17, 2010

Yeah, that list is very fake.

yut said on Jun. 17, 2010

That list is fake, Liugis pie factory? Dreamland 4? Super mario squash? XD
IDK about the door though.

Starman 99 said on Jun. 17, 2010

List is really fake, but I’m not sure about the door. We’d need another source to “find” it.

Rafs said on Jun. 17, 2010

It’s fake.The door i don’t know,but the list is completely fake.

“Luigi’s Pie Factory” sounds like a depraved homossexual adventure.

Mato said on Jun. 17, 2010

I lurk on the Something Awful boards and here are some posts there:

“The font is the same as the rest of their booth (and the color looks right), also, I think I remember seeing the door and wondering wtf it was all about, not thinking at all

Also..if it was the door I’m thinking of, its not a secret hallway, just an obscure one that had low foottraffic”


“Posting to confirm the Dr Andonuts door is real, and not hidden, its along the zelda line even”

Why must they taunt us 🙁

OKeijiDragon said on Jun. 17, 2010

That paper looks so unprofessionally made, I bet it was done in Mircosoft Word in about 20 minutes.

I definitely think this is fake.

FuzzyPicklez said on Jun. 17, 2010

I wish the list was real so I could get TingleQuest 3D.

Deluxe said on Jun. 17, 2010

Bust down the door people. Bust it down.

Justin said on Jun. 17, 2010

Was about to post the link, but JeffSeven beat me. The door definitely exists!

_oMeGa_ said on Jun. 17, 2010

Okay, either A, Nintendo is being very bizarre with their announcements, or B, they’re trolling us.

Rockstar Energy Drinks: The modern-day Instant Revitalizing Device.

He is real, folks. He is real.

Dark Hamsterlord said on Jun. 17, 2010

At this point, I think NOA is just made up of a bunch of assholes. They just like to see how we react to this stuff.

FuzzyPicklez said on Jun. 17, 2010

Dr. Andonuts may not be there, but are there at least doctors? Or an-donuts?

Darien said on Jun. 17, 2010

Nintendo definitely hasn’t announced anything Mother-related, and there was no mention of Mother during the press conference. Also, sadly, no mention of Luigi’s Pie Factory. So I think it’s best to throw this in the “hoax” bin.

Of course, that’s not to detract from the sparklingly juvenile theory that Nintendo is hoaxing us deliberately because they’re a bunch of assholes.

Pkhypernova said on Jun. 17, 2010

Earthbound re-entry please say it’s true!

Commander said on Jun. 17, 2010

I bet they’re reading this as we type, ready to see if we’re clever enough to solve this mystery, I bet we never really finished Earthbound, and this is the Real Final boss, Eh Reggie? What was that? HMMMM?!?

Edracon said on Jun. 18, 2010

that sheet was prooved fake a good while back ago.. and the press conferences prooved it even more fake.

Jason said on Jun. 18, 2010

I played the Zelda demo today and took about 10 or so pictures of the door. I know there’s video around one, but I did get one still of the door being opened, and you can see it leads to a hallway, I believe. I haven’t uploaded them, and likely won’t be able to until Saturday or Sunday, but when I do, I’ll let everyone know. There’ll probably be an article up on PixlBit about it, just for fun, too, but I’ll make sure to send something to Tomato when that time comes.

Droginator said on Jun. 18, 2010

I think the most obvious indication that it’s fake is that they can’t get the names of existing games correct.

“Brotherhood Creed: Rise, Templars, Rise!” XD

At first glance, though, I was extremely hopeful for a new EarthBound game.

FuzzyPicklez said on Jun. 18, 2010

The image was supposed to be fake, and the maker was surprised that people passed it off as real.

Do we have to watermark our fake images “FAKE” for people to not think they’re real and get everyone’s hopes up?

wow! someone loves to use their computer for LIES!

GoldenEevee said on Jun. 22, 2010

Never even saw Pokemon Black/White at E3 (but we know they exist), or “Bowser vs. Donkey Kong”, “Luigis Pie Factory”, “Kirbys Dream land 4”, “Super Mario Land 3D”, “Super Mario Squash 3D”, “Icarus Flight” (possibly the new Kid Icarus game in reality), “RC Pro AM”, “Echo Delta”, or most importantly: Earthbound Re Entry, hold on, “VitaliTEASE”, it’s obviously a joke made by Reggie to torture us, after all, E3 is pretty much over I think, but there’s still PAX, the second largest VG convention of the year………

owen said on Dec. 22, 2010

I don’t think that an earthbound re-entry will arrive any time soon 🙁

Lucas said on Feb. 12, 2011

Well it does say pokemon Black and White which is coming out in March but
Luigis pie factory? Hmmm makes me sneaky.

Andromeda said on Feb. 12, 2011

the paper is fake for sure, but i wonder whats up with the door..

Zoom! said on Jul. 30, 2011

Bowser vs Donkey Kong XD

Matteomax said on Sep. 6, 2011

Bowser vs Donkey kong, Luigi’s pie factory, ugh, these all are fake! But! Earthbound COULD be remade for the 3DS next year… I hope!!!!! 🙂

BigDream said on Feb. 11, 2012
