The upcoming Mario Maker game has a bunch of extra characters included that you can unlock – we’ve already seen Ness, but now we have some pics of Lucas too!

So for right now, the screenshots above are the only thing I can seem to find on social media sites. I assume y...Read More »

For the past year or so I’ve heard a number of different rumors and stories that someone has acquired a prototype of the Nintendo 64 version of MOTHER 3. I’ve never put much faith in it because it’s never accompanied with pictures or other evidence. Here’s an interesting e-mail from a reader, though: Hello, I was looking at earthbound 64 info because.. eh why not? anyways, ...Read More »

Recently, Itoi and his company posted photos of the new merchandise, along with a Starman surprise!

Yesterday I posted about how there are going to be TWO EarthBound-themed planner covers released by Shigesato Itoi’s company in the coming weeks. It turns out I was wrong – there are three! The third design is for a smaller-sized, weekly planner cover and features Mr. Saturn! And here are the other two previously-announced standard-sized planner covers for reference: Note that these...Read More »

A few months ago I posted about the new Saturn Valley Hobonichi Techo Planner, which should be available to buy next month. (Note – if you’ve never heard of these “techo” things before, I wrote an article about them here.)

A while back I posted about new MOTHER 1/EarthBound Beginnings straps that were planned to be released in Japan. Well, it’s getting pretty close to release time – it sounds like they’ll become available in Japanese capsule machines sometime this week or next week. If you’re not in Japan, though, don’t worry! I’m sure they’ll be all over eBay and elsewher...Read More »

A reader named Glenn just sent in this e-mail: A CNN article about retro video games mentioned EarthBound specifically by name as well as Zelda OoT, and I thought you’d find it interesting. The article is about how the increasing popularity of vintage video games is causing spikes in cash value. Check it out, dog! You can read the article here, and it includes this short video about retro ga...Read More »
