Tips for Buying EarthBound

December 9th, 2012 | Audio Stuff, EarthBound, Videos

The other day there was an official MOTHER 2 live concert held on Shigesato Itoi’s site. Most of us missed it because of time zone differences and because we didn’t know about it. But luckily JB2448 was able to get ahold of the recorded videos and post them on YouTube:

I’m not sure if that’s all of them or not, but it’s nice to actually have something now 😀 Also, if you want some MP3s of the concert, they’re available on the original post I made here!

Not only is the music good, it’s really amazing to see Keiichi Suzuki and Hirokazu Tanaka together again too!

I’m… not sure what to think of that video.

JB2448? 😮 I…I know that person. Also, I love how they have little clay models on their keyboards <3

Thanks for letting people know about the footage, Mato! I only wish we could somehow get the entire broadcast. because apparently the first hour of it was “essentially a long interview with Tanaka and Suzuki.” Mazoboom posted about it in the comments section of a previous article: http://earthboundcentral.com/2012/11/prof-sakamoto-hyadain-hobonichi-concert/#comments

For the future, if Itoi decides to plan more events like this on Niconico Live, anybody who reserves an event for timeshift would feasibly be able to download them with kakorokuRecorder: http://jrcach.tumblr.com/post/27320617926/this-is-the-repost-of-my-past-article-these-two
Hopefully there will be more of these so we can try it!

I’m more of a fan of UbseyLive’s EarthBound jam:

I wonder if they would sell tickets for the concert. I would be willing to pay a couple hundred dollars to see them…

Lol, Niconico Douga style. Some of those comments… UWAAAAAAA!!! xD I’m sure all of those “OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHH!!!!”‘s happen a lot on that site. xD

It’s the same material that was already found by JB2448, but I found someone uploaded this


which is the footage edited together in one video without the watermark or niconico comments.

I still want the whole thing. It seems likely that someone has it if this guy uploaded this sort of video.

I found something better!

That’s the whole second half, including Hyadain doing a live version of his Tonkura Brothers remix (and then promoting a recent single for his new album after that).


After searching, I found something.
This guy has the show in seven 20-minute parts on his nico account.

http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm19711819 (Part 1 is just the two hosts talking about the guests and introducing them before they come on. Prof. Sakamoto and Hyadain enter at 12:30, Tanaka and Suzuki enter at 17:00)

http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm19724470 (Part 2 is where the discussion really begins)
http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm19724666 (Part 3)
http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm19724830 (Part 4 quickly becomes the same material as the dailymotion video at 6:55 after a cool little musical discussion about who will do what, heh)

I found the seven-parter around the same time as you did, mazoboom! I’ve spliced it together as best as I could and uploaded it to YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3uAUZ506xKA

I’m glad we finally have the entire event! If you have any suggestions as to what additional information I should put in the description, please let me know!

I watched 50 minutes of it, and here’s some bits of the interview some people might find interesting!
They didn’t mention starmen.net, but the Prof. did mention how Mother 2 is Earthbound in English and how “foreigners” have covered and remixed Earthbound songs as well.
When asked if they’d do the music for Mother 4 if that was a thing, they gave a somewhat hesitant, “If we’re asked…” sort of reply. From their comments, this isn’t cuz they disliked doing it before or anything, but because after doing the music for 1 and 2, they really feel like they’ve finished their job, and done it well.
This might be something that everyone knows already, but did you know that speak-y parts of Dungeon Man’s theme is a sampling of Mr. Itoi talking that they secretly took? I didn’t know that. Oh, and Belch’s burp is theirs, and took a few tries to get right, apparently. xD
There was some talk in the comments in Nico Nico Douga about how there was an online Earthbound game made by “foreigners”. Saturn Valley Online?

I wonder if someone’s ever gonna translate and subtitle it? I’d do it if I knew how. :/ Unless there already is one!
