Pippo sent this in a little while ago: Hi, Mister Tomato! Here are 12 scans from N64 Magazine, which was a UK mag from the late 90s/early 00s. They’re all previews and gossip for Mother 3, naturally, except for a scan of a competition where readers had to send in US-related items to win an N64. Note the Mach Pizza air freshener! You can see all the scans here: #gallery-1 { margin:...Read More »

Some years ago, maybe a few months after MOTHER 3 was released in Japan, a fellow by the name of Brendan Sechter approached me and Reid about working together to get a license to translate and sell MOTHER 3 in English. It was kind of cool, because he had actually helped out with the game’s development in a small fashion – he’s even listed in the credits! Sadly, that plan fizzled ...Read More »

Part 2 of this! Awesomely awesome Chewy managed to get ahold of the EarthBound 64 staff member, but she’s not sure what to ask him now. So let’s come up with some questions! Remember, the guy only did the monster designs for EarthBound 64, and even that was a long time ago, so it’s best to keep questions in that area. Quick disclaimer: there’s still a chance he might not wa...Read More »

The other day, I posted about how Shigesato Itoi recently joined Twitter. I was reading through a lot of comments to him just now and came across this, which I’ve translated into English: aoki818 @itoi_shigesato It’s been a really long time, Mr. Itoi. This is Aoki, I was on the staff of the old Mother 3 (the one that wasn’t released). I heard you joined Twitter, so I thought I...Read More »

Ten years ago (dang, ten already?) I was studying in Japan. As an EarthBound fan, it was exciting that there was a whole lot of MOTHER series stuff to be had, though it turned out I didn’t have the money for most of it. Anyway, sometimes I would write articles for Starmen.Net about my experiences. Here’s the one about where I reserved the Nintendo 64 version of MOTHER 3 the day they st...Read More »

I came across this in my huge pile of random EarthBound stuff. I don’t know what magazine it comes from or what issue it was from, I’m guessing it’s from 2002 though. Anyone got any ideas about this? click for full size I wonder if this guy visits this site or Starmen.Net. I also wonder if he ever gave in and eventually bought a GameCube anyway 😛 ...Read More »

In the history of the MOTHER series, there’ve been several released games and a few cancelled projects. But out of those, only one game made it out of Japan: EarthBound. By now we all know the story and history of the series (if you don’t, see here), so I won’t go into that. But we can still play the “what if” game 😛 So today’s poll question is this: What if ...Read More »

Many years ago, Nintendo Power sat down with Shigeru Miyamoto and asked him about Ocarina of Time and a few other games, including EarthBound 64. I forget the issue number, if anyone has it handy lemme know. How is EarthBound 64 coming along? Miyamoto: I think we can release EarthBound 64 by the end of the year. Even though the game is canceled, I still kind of wish they’d show us more from...Read More »

Joey D. sent this in yesterday, and it is mighty awesome! I produce an online review show that tackles the hidden classics of the 16-bit era. And since EarthBound is one of my favorite games (isn’t it for us all), I knew that my episode for that would have to be rather epic. I’ve passed it around on the Starmen.Net forums and xfisjmg1 thought I should drop you a line about it. I wound ...Read More »

YouTube user dudaw12 posted this yesterday. It’s a re-creation of Tazmily from EarthBound 64 in Mario 64. It’s not completely accurate due to technical limitations and the differences between the two games’ engines, but it’s still a neat look at what might have been. I’ve made yet another fun level using Frauber’s wavefront obj importer. This level is from the ...Read More »
