GamePro recently posted a video that briefly covers EarthBound and the other games in the series: Interesting to compare that GamePro video to the original GamePro review of EarthBound here! So here’s a little poll: if an EarthBound compilation pack were ever released in English, would you buy it on Day 1? Click here to vote! ...Read More »

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 »

Komaru recently sent in this scan from the UK magazine Retro Gamer that talks about anti-piracy measures in video games. EarthBound’s anti-piracy measures are almost infamous by now, as you can see: (click for full image) There are a few tiny facts off in the article, but I can understand why they were made – in my original article here I didn’t mention that each start-up check ...Read More »

Catterick sent in some scans from UK gaming magazines the other day: I saw you were looking for scans from magazines relating to Earthbound, so I thought I’d send these. They’re from Issue 132 of Nintendo Official Magazine UK (later renamed Official Nintendo Magazine) and date from September 2003. They did a preview on Mother 1+2, though you can see they didn’t have much hope for...Read More »

Dan F. e-mailed me to let me know that the MOTHER 3 fan translation had been mentioned briefly in a Swedish magazine called LEVEL: It’s from the November 2009 issue, in an article about fan translations. The blurb about MOTHER 3 supposedly translates to something like: “Mother 3 – The sequel to Earthbound was released, after extreme ordeals, in Japan 2006. Two years later a fan ...Read More »

Good ol’ Omnomnominous sent this in a little while back: Hey 🙂 I was just reading ‘NGamer’ magazine and found this. It’s pretty self-explanatory. Nice to see that there are UK fans wishing the MOTHER series would make it onto VC/DS. Apologies for the poor quality, since I used a camera rather than a scanner. It’s still perfectly readable, though. It’s starti...Read More »


May 17th, 2010 | MOTHER 3 | 16 Comments

Assorted Astrology-Related Names sent this in. It’s a 2006 review of MOTHER 3 by Hyper magazine, a gaming mag in Australia. That’s a pretty high score they gave it, and it wasn’t even in English 😯 I love seeing old reviews/previews like this, so if you’ve come across any that haven’t been featured on the site yet, share your knowledge! ...Read More »
