lorenzoone, who headed one of the Italian MOTHER 3 fan translations, has been doing lots of work with the game’s programming, including fixing bugs in the original game and uncovering unused/missing content. This latest video shows off how the MOTHER 3 debug room was actually intended to work: there’s actually more than one room in the debug room! The video also shows some unused sprit...Read More »

There’s a show about video games in Japan called Yusha AAAA. A few weeks ago, Mato & I happened to catch an episode centered around MOTHER 2. There were five people invited to the show, three of which were real MOTHER 2 fans. The other two were lying. Could the hosts figure out who was who based on their answers? I gave them numbers to make it easier. Question 1: What’s your favori...Read More »

Today is the 10th anniversary of the MOTHER 3 fan translation. To commemorate, Mato wrote a huge article documenting the cycle of hope, hype, and disappointment that surrounds the demand for an official MOTHER 3 translation from Nintendo. Some fans have been on this rollercoaster ride for 23 years and counting. For older fans, this article is a strange, funny, and heartrending trip down memory la...Read More »

Back when we worked on the MOTHER 3 fan translation 10 years ago, we had reidman and Meeellla record themselves saying “Ready, set, go!” for an audio clip that plays in Chapter 4. If you don’t recall, it plays when Lucas and a character named OJ are about to do a rock-paper-scissors sort of game. Original: Recently, a fan named Karmageddon asked the official English voice actres...Read More »

The Super Soul Bros. band has done a lot of great game music covers over the years, and if you’ve been to any conventions or seen any Fangamer events, you’ve probably seen them in action. They’re a lot of fun and put lots of energy into their music. They recently released an album dedicated to EarthBound/MOTHER series music that I absolutely love, so I wanted to make sure I share...Read More »

During a recent WWE event, a fan could be seen holding up a “LOCALIZE MOTHER 3” sign near the ring: It turns out that that fan was none other than magypsyparty! This is actually the second time this has happened. The first time it happened was a year ago, when a different fan held up a similar sign. Is this the start of a new trend? (P.S. I’m a bit behind on recent EarthBound ne...Read More »

A bunch of EarthBound things have happened lately, so here’s a quick look at some of them! Lasgna Cat is back, and one of the short episodes featured some MOTHER 3 stuff: One of those super-rare MOTHER 2 jackets went up for auction in Japan. The starting bid of $2000 scared everyone away, though, so it went without any bids at all. A semi-rare EarthBound ruler hit eBay and eventually sold...Read More »

Jammy sent in a video that shows off a fan-made recipe for the Pork Noodles food item that appears in MOTHER 3: I’m not a very good cook but I this seems enough for even me to try! You can also find other game and pop culture-themed recipes on Jammy’s YouTube page here. If you have any EarthBound/MOTHER recipes of your own, share them in the comments! I once made some Giygas cookies&#...Read More »

MOTHER 3 was released on the Japanese Wii U Virtual Console last year but no one really knew if it had undergone any changes from its original Game Boy Advance release. That changed last month, when some of the EarthBound hacker guys and I finally got to dig into the new game’s data! In all, it appears that three small changes were made. The programming code that makes these changes work wer...Read More »
