Rumors

February 27th, 2011 | Itoi, MOTHER 4, Rumors | 90 Comments

Whenever there’s even a slight hint of EarthBound/MOTHER news, sometimes it’s easy to try to read too much into stuff. I think the fan community’s been disappointed so many times by now that a lot of us have gotten numb to it, but it still happens a lot (not that I make things much better 😛 ) This isn’t just a Western thing though – for example earlier this month J...Read More »

The mysterious Dr. Andonuts door at E3 is getting people’s hopes up… but there’s been little info about it. Luckily, Destructoid checked it out for us and posted a video online. It’s hard to hear everything, but it’s neat to see more confirmation of the door and that there are Nintendo people in there. If any new info comes out, let me know and I’ll continue to...Read More »

Today I suddenly started getting a lot of e-mails from folks about stuff at E3. I’ve been wary of posting it since I can’t confirm anything, so take all of this with many grains of salt. The first tidbit comes from Infendo – there’s apparently a door near Nintendo’s booth at E3 that says “Dr. Andonuts” on it for some reason: If anyone is at E3, can you co...Read More »

 

July 23rd, 2009 | Images, MOTHER 3, Rumors, Uncommon Knowledge | 57 Comments

About two weeks after MOTHER 3 was released in Japan in 2006, Official Nintendo Magazine (the equivalent of Nintendo Power for Europe) printed an article that seemed to indicate the game would be translated into English and released in Europe by the end of 2006. Here’s the article: (click to enlarge, PS does anyone have a nicer-looking scan?) As usual, EarthBound fans were very excited and ...Read More »

A few weeks ago, we finally got confirmation that that EarthBound lookalike game for Level 5’s ROID game service was actually a version of “The Another World”. If you don’t remember or don’t know what I’m talking about, see here. Anyway, though it’s not EarthBound, its graphical style is clearly based off of EarthBound / MOTHER 3, so I though I’d sho...Read More »

At E3, a MMO game called Kung Fu Hustle (apparently not connected to the movie?) was shown off. What’s interesting is that the developer supposedly said that EarthBound had some influence on the game’s creation. What this means exactly is anyone’s guess. But if you’re interested, you can read more here. Thanks to R7038XX and santiagoff for the tip! ...Read More »

Remember a while back when there was that mystery screenshot for a game that looked a lot like EarthBound? And then we realized it’s probably for the Level 5 + Studio Ghibli “The Another World” game for the ROID service? If not, see here. Anyway, some more news has come out, and indeed, the EarthBound lookalike game has been confirmed to be a ROID version of The Another World, du...Read More »

I like Destructoid stuff, and the idea of consulting a psychic about upcoming E3 stuff just adds to that pile of fondness I have for the site. But what I found most interesting in that visit to the psychic was that she predicted that MOTHER 3 would be released on the Nintendo DS. Of course, I don’t really believe that stuff, but it’s awesome that the question was even asked 😀 And si...Read More »

 

April 17th, 2009 | MOTHER 1+2, MOTHER 3, Rumors | 11 Comments

When MOTHER 1+2 and MOTHER 3 were first announced in April 2003, things were pretty exciting. But, little did we know that rumors about the games had been in Japanese magazines since June 2002, almost a full year before 😯 Here’s an except from Famitsu Cube+Advance from the middle of June. I don’t know what issue # it would be, though it’d of course be awesome to somehow get a ...Read More »

 

April 3rd, 2009 | Audio Stuff, MOTHER 3, Rumors | 59 Comments

Visitor Victor D. informed me the other day that he couldn’t find the MOTHER3+ or MOTHER3i albums on iTunes anymore. So I checked and asked a few other people to check, and it indeed looks like both albums are now gone from everything but Japaense iTunes. It’s not clear why this is, it might have to do with them needing to make DRM-free versions for the iTunes Plus thing by the end of ...Read More »
