Aerostella came across this scan from the November 1999 issue of Game Informer. In it, it previews EarthBound 64 but calls it EarthBound 3. (click for full size) Back then I don’t think it was called EarthBound 3 by anyone anywhere, so I’m guessing the editors tried to fix the game’s numbering issue themselves. Even Nintendo Power and Nintendo’s site were calling it EarthB...Read More »

The latest issue of Game Informer apparently includes a list of what it considers the top 200 games of all time, and EarthBound came in at #113: It says: “Known as ‘the game with the big box,’ Earthbound shipped with a strategy guide, scratch and sniff insert, and one of the most charming games around. Ness and friends save the planet while staying in touch with Mom and Dad in t...Read More »

The top five results were: Final Fantasy X Dragon Quest V Final Fantasy VII Clannad MOTHER 2 Additionally, they list a couple quotes from survey-takers for each one. For MOTHER 2, this is what some survey takers said: “I cried so much from the last boss...Read More »

V-King sent in these scans of an article about EarthBound 64 that appeared in the German magazine Total!, which I guess has no relation to the UK magazine with the same name. Anyway, here’s the article: And here’s the translated text: (more…) ...Read More »

Brazilian EarthBound fan Mitchell sent in this PDF file of scans from “Nintendo World”, a Nintendo magazine in Brazil. It talks about each of the games in the MOTHER series and looks like it’s been written by a passionate fan. (download the PDF here) Here’s what Mitchell has to say about it: well, here it is. The Mother news in the brazilian’s magazine: Nintendo Worl...Read More »

Z-Master sent this in the other day, it’s a scan of an article in the official French Nintendo magazine (akin to Nintendo Power) about MOTHER 3 that was printed in June 2006. (click to enlarge) Here’s a translation of the article, courtesy of DavemanDeluxe! Much like its predecessors, Mother 3 is (obviously!) a real UFO. We identify it… Originally announced more than ten years a...Read More »

I saw a while back that someone said that MOTHER 3 was never mentioned in Nintendo Power. So here’s an article from a recent-ish issue of Nintendo Power that does mention MOTHER 3 and why it would never come out in English 😛 click to enlarge “Unfortunately, the dialogue would take ages to translate into English, making the game’s chances of one day releasing here even more sl...Read More »

U.K. magazine NGC (which is now out of business I hear) gave a two-page review of MOTHER 3 back in 2006, just shortly after the game’s release in Japan. Alex W. and Sebastian were kind enough to send in scans of the review, which you can check out below. Heh, I like the various comments about hoping to get it in English sometime. That sure worked out well in the end 😛 ...Read More »

Yesterday I posted an EarthBound preview by Total! magazine, an old European magazine. Today is the actual review! From a technical standpoint, I think this might actually be the best EarthBound review we’ve dug up so far. The review spans four pages, has pictures from many different parts of the game instead of just Onett, and the reviewer actually played all the way through the game! But m...Read More »
