It’s New Year’s Eve! For whatever reason, that phrase always reminds me of the New Year’s Eve Bomb in MOTHER 3 now, so a new thing I’ve started doing is the “New Year’s MOTHER 3 Challenge”, which is basically trying to fight the giant Porky statue in New Pork City for as long as possible without using the New Year’s Eve Bomb (or PK Flash). As far as...Read More »

So the other day I posted about an announcement made by Shigesato Itoi about something MOTHER-related in the works. I thought it might be interesting to do a poll and see what fans think his announcement is pointing to – so vote below! And if your personal choice isn’t on the list, share it in the comments! ...Read More »

Michael recently sent me this e-mail: Thought you guys might like to check out the feature I’ve written about Mother 3 and grief management. It’s something I’ve struggled to write for years. Now it’s done, and I want to get it out there. Enjoy. You can check out his post here – give it a read sometime, it’s an interesting and touching write-up! ...Read More »

I just realized yesterday that I first bought/opened the EarthBound Central domain on Christmas of 2008, which makes the site four years old. I can’t believe it’s already been four years 😯 I want to thank all the readers and all the people who send in stuff to update about, EB Central would be nothing without you. For reference, there have been 1,545 updates – holy crap! Anyw...Read More »

While browsing Japanese sites this time of year, one thing I often see is Mr. Saturn in snowman form! So here are just a few I’ve come across: #gallery-1 { margin: auto; } #gallery-1 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-1 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-1 .gallery-caption { m...Read More »

Lately there’s been some rumblings in Japan of building up an army again, which has lots of people there worried, of course. As a result, an old anti-war ad by Shigesato Itoi from the 80s has been making the rounds on Japanese sites again in this new context: It says: “After you, Prime Minister.” (lit: “The Prime Minister shall step up to the front-lines first.”) The ad was designed...Read More »

The Internet has been abuzz with news about Shigesato Itoi’s announcement of something MOTHER-related in the works. While checking out Japanese fans’ reactions I thought it might be interesting to share some of them here, so below are some Japanese comments that I’ve translated into English: Wh-what?! C’mon, save big stuff like that until you can actually give more detail...Read More »


December 20th, 2012 | EarthBound, Itoi, MOTHER 4 | 298 Comments

Just now on Twitter Shigesato Itoi posted a few things about MOTHER series developments. Here’s a quick translation: Since it’s now okay to blurt this out, here goes: the “MOTHER republication” thing I mentioned briefly before is making progress. (original post) And then: It’s not “(MOTHER) 4”, though! This has to do with making “MOTHER” playab...Read More »

I saw a cool little video the other day called The Glitch, and I was surprised when Ness was in it! Very cool stuff – even if the preview image is freaky. I’ve seen lots of commenters say things like, “Who’s the guy in the striped shirt?” “Ness from Smash Bros., duh!” But that’s just how it’s always been I guess 😛 ...Read More »

In (hopefully) the next couple weeks we’ll be releasing an updated version of the MOTHER 3 translation patch that fixes a few little things. We’re also planning on releasing our tools and files to the public, hopefully at the same time. Anyway, I’m mentioning it here so that if anyone has any last-minute typo reports or bugs, please let us know in the comments. I think I’v...Read More »
