Tips for Buying EarthBound

April 6th, 2012 | MOTHER 3, Videos

Here’s a video by IamCanadian3333 showing a bunch of EarthBound references that appear in MOTHER 3:

Has anyone ever made a full list of references? I realized that’s probably something I should’ve done at some point, either for the translation project or for this site, but just never did.

I’m surprised he didn’t point out the Instant Revitalizing Device comes from Andonuts Lab in EB. 😉

But then if I’m saying that I could also nitpick the Polyanna thing. It only plays in Ness’s house in EB, but is one of the main themes of M1.

I should nitpick less.

I’m confused about the pencil eraser in Mother 3. Wasn’t it an octopus in Mother 2? Did the game players in Japan somehow know about the pencil eraser?

Along with translating MOTHER 3, Mato also localized it like any professional game company would. He changed the octopus and weird doll statues to the pencil and eraser statues for us, since that’s how they were in EarthBound.

This link is ok though: http://earthboundcentral.com/m2eb

The other link fails to redirect properly.

In the annotations, he said that Pollyanna is from MOTHER 2 which is wrong, it’s from MOTHER. 🙂 Other than that I have nothing else to add, I can’t come to think of anything else at the moment.

Check that robot mom waitress for one more reference.

Even though he mentioned there being minor ones, one of my favorites (which was missed) was the reference to Dr. Andonuts’ lab in New Pork City.
