Tips for Buying EarthBound

January 13th, 2013 | EarthBound, Itoi, Merchandise


Over the past month or two I’ve posted about how a new MOTHER 2-themed iPhone 5 case was being planned for release on Shigesato Itoi’s company store. Well, now it’s out, so if you have an iPhone 5 and are in need of a case, here you go:

Again, this case only fits the iPhone 5 – if you have anything else it won’t fit your phone 🙁

Also, as a bit of neat trivia, these (and other cases) were on sale at Itoi’s physical store between December 20th and 25th. The thing is, though, is that the MOTHER 2 cases sold during this time accidentally had the copyright/credit information left off of the sides:


So the official site is saying that if you bought one of these, you can return it for a refund or exchange it for a case with the copyright info on it. I wonder if anyone will actually bother with that though.

But seriously, I’m glad to see that case in his store. Now if only he’ll make a MOTHER-themed techo cover for next year! 🙂

^ Haha, I was just thinking that same thing about the rare iPhone case. Gotta love MOTHER fans.

I kind of wish I had an iPhone 5. Well not really, but it’s a nice case.

It’s no surprise Itoi was a t-shirt designer.

I have a 5th gen iPod Touch. I really want that case, but it won’t fit my iPod.

2,500? god damn that’s expensive.

I don’t have an iPhone, but I do like the design. The Copyright notice seems to detract from the cleanliness, though.

At least in the US, it’s also unnecessary, since copyright is automatic and instantaneous. I think under the Berne Convention, it should be the same in Japan, but don’t quote me.

COOL! I can’t wait till’ my one get’s here!

I’ll probably just stick with a Otterbox case, I’d consider buying one if it was close to the 2500 yen price. I wouldn’t pay a huge mark up on one though.

This kinda kills me because I got an iPhone 4 literally YESTERDAY. I had been wanting an iPhone 5, but I got this one for a huge discount thanks to a free upgrade thingy my wireless provider does (to get you into a 2-year contract, but whatever). I’m loving it so far, but I guess I’ll have to live without Siri, Retina Display, higher specs and MOTHER cases. I wonder just how powerful the iPhone 5 IS, anyway? my iPhone 4 seems like it’s got a surprising amount of power in it…

I got a 4S just last month too so I’m in the same boat. The 4S has been more than enough for me though, so I’m in no hurry to get to the 5.

I want this for my iPhone 5…However, I don’t think you can get it imported from this site to the US…or can you?

Mato said on Jan. 15, 2013

I check the store’s FAQ and it says they’ll ship overseas.

I just bought one! I was so pumped when I found out about this case. Hopefully it gets here ok. It’s a good thing Chrome can translate decently enough or I never would have navigated that, lol.

what was the total with shipping to the us?

Queue said on Jan. 16, 2013

It came to ¥2,880 total with taxes and whatnot. I don’t know the direct conversion but it’s somewhere under $30.

Queue said on Jan. 16, 2013

Actually, I just checked my Chase account and it’s showing that it came to $32.62. They may have had to throw on some extra from international shipping.
