Visitante sent in these scans from a Spanish-language version of NGamer. It looks like it’s an article about the history of the MOTHER series. I don’t have a translation handy (used to know Spanish but it got pushed out when I learned Japanese, doh) so hopefully some language-knowers here can help translate. It seems like EarthBound stuff is in NGamer magazines a lot: EarthBound in ...Read More »

Maikel submitted this the other day, it’s from the Dutch version of NGamer and discusses the top 100 Super NES games. Here’s the translation: Earthbound is one of the few import titles to get a place in this list. But this is a special case anyway. Earthbound – or actually, the entire Mother-series, from which Earthbound is the second game – always liked the obscure. That&...Read More »

meleemario submitted this a while ago: Hey Tomato! I dug up an old issue of Tips & Tricks (R.I.P.) magazine the other day when I was digging through my N64 collection, looking for a game to play. In any case, I spotted Ness on the cover of of T&T (Only took me 8 years to notice!), and I thought that despite this being relatively minor, it’s still important nonetheless to see Earthb...Read More »

chavacero sent in a while back: Ok. This is what i found already in a videogame magazine, called Game Masters. Its about an article about 20 years of existence of SNES console. They were talking about his design, development, processor, games. The best games of SNES. And one of these games, Earthbound. it said: One of the best games and rarest titles of SNES. Known as MOTHER 2 in japan, officially...Read More »

Way back in 2007 GameInformer did a several-page piece on EarthBound. Even though I own this issue, I totally forgot about it until Joshua sent in these scans: It’s interesting to see how the modern gaming media is much more positive about EarthBound than the gaming press was back in 1995. ...Read More »

 

September 24th, 2011 | Audio Stuff, MOTHER 3, Videos | 59 Comments

A couple readers have sent in news that an Australian TV show used MOTHER 3 music during one of its news segments. You can check it out for yourself here, it starts around 2:25 in: The song used is Porky’s Porkies, which is one of the battle tunes near the end of the game. I’m guessing the audio people stumbled upon this song when they did a search for “Pokies” or someth...Read More »

Apparently the July 2011 issue of Official Nintendo Magazine of Australia has some little blurbs about EarthBound and the MOTHER games: (click for full size) Nothing much, but it’s always nice to see mentions in magazines. Even if they all use the same handful of screenshots every time (like this phenomenon) 😛 Is “fashion” really spelled like “fasion” in Australia...Read More »

While trying to find a full scan of this really neat MOTHER 1 ad (to no avail 🙁 ) I ran across the Famicom Tsuushin reviews of MOTHER 1 from 1989. Famicom Tsuushin is what we now know as Famitsu. Anyway, here are their reviews translated into English – you’ll see that a lot of the complaints Western fans have about the game were actually shared by Japanese players too. These come fr...Read More »

OmniM sent me this the other day, it’s another magazine article discussing EarthBound 64. It’s surprising how many game magazines there were out there covering EB64 – most of the info is all just recycled between magazines but it sure got a lot of coverage worldwide! Anyway, here’s what OmniM had to say: Hello, I am OmniM and got a magazine scan about EarthBound 64. It is ...Read More »

A little while back Gabriel sent this in: I’ve scanned an article from an old magazine I had, it’s Club Nintendo from latin america (official magazine, it’s like the Nintendo power here). it’s from october 1999, from the Space world 99 event. I’m from Argentina, by the way. Thought it might be interesting for you to read what magazines over here said about Mother 3 at...Read More »
