The English localization of Rune Factory 4 came out recently, and I’ve heard that it’s brimming with references to stuff. So it’s not surprising that it has an EarthBound reference too! Thanks to noxvulpes for the tip and the image! ...Read More »

chuggaaconroy spotted this just the other day – it’s a piece of exercise/diet equipment that has the EarthBound font on it! The bottom text is for comparison purposes, and it definitely looks like it’s one of the EarthBound-based fonts, probably the one here or here. Looking around online, it seems they use this font for the website and other promotional materials, not just the ...Read More »

The new Animal Crossing game came out the other day and it sounds like people are having a blast with it. I haven’t checked it out yet, but Tyler B. sent me this recently: Looks like Nintendo threw in a nice homage to EarthBound in Animal Crossing New Leaf! He also mentioned Bobbery of Rogueport from Paper Mario, too, but this one did a better job catching my attention! Is this new game ful...Read More »

Back in 2011, Shigesato Itoi tweeted that a professional tennis player by the name of Kei Nishikori carried around a Mr. Saturn plush for good luck. I had missed that tweet, but Jack W. posted on the EarthBound Central Facebook page about it showing up on the Tennis Channel recently, so I did a quick search and found it here! I guess he doesn’t know it’s called a Mr. Saturn in English...Read More »

I saw a cool little video the other day called The Glitch, and I was surprised when Ness was in it! Very cool stuff – even if the preview image is freaky. I’ve seen lots of commenters say things like, “Who’s the guy in the striped shirt?” “Ness from Smash Bros., duh!” But that’s just how it’s always been I guess 😛 ...Read More »

A few people have written in to let me know that some EarthBound-based stuff was recently on Comedy Central as part of a show called “Mash Up”. Here’s how snoopthedrew describes it: Hi there! I was on comedy central tonight watching a show called mashup which is a sketch show that’s very heavily influenced by video games and pop culture and this interesting character named ...Read More »

After posting yesterday’s update about Game Center CX and MOTHER, I was reminded that a lot of the sounds in Kirby’s Dream Course comes straight from EarthBound/MOTHER 2. Then I remembered that I made this video many years back, showing some Kirby and MOTHER 2 connections: Of course, there’s also the Kirby sprite in EarthBound. Are there any other connections I’ve missed? ...Read More »

Over at N-Sider, Brandon has posted about a Mach Pizza reference in the Evangelion anime. I’d never heard about this little tidbit before, so this is cool 😀 ...Read More »

Here’s a video by IamCanadian3333 showing a bunch of EarthBound references that appear in MOTHER 3: Has anyone ever made a full list of references? I realized that’s probably something I should’ve done at some point, either for the translation project or for this site, but just never did. ...Read More »

A couple folks have sent this in recently, here’s what Kelsyjones says: I’m not sure if it’s actually supposed to be a Mother 3 reference, but I thought I’d send it in anyway. In the first chapter of the Black Butler manga (also known as Kuroshitsuji), one of the main characters receives a game for the “Ninkyodo Gameguy Advance”, an obvious parody of the Nintend...Read More »
