Nintendo Power

June 13th, 2013 | EarthBound, Images | 20 Comments

DSuser posted a scan of an old Nintendo Power issue in which readers asked for what dream games they’d like to see get made. Two of the responses that were printed were about EarthBound: EarthBound for Game Boy… Man, that would’ve been wild. I’d love to see how that would’ve looked – I imagine it would be something like this. Here’s a proof of concept tha...Read More »

I’m a big fan of the Angry Video Game Nerd’s stuff, so this is old news to me but for years one of the most common e-mails I’ve gotten is something like: you know that one issue of nintendo power with scratch and sniff earthbound? it makes an appearance in this episode of AVGN. So, without further ado, here’s that EarthBound mention in his Nintendo Power video! From what I...Read More »

CerealQueen sent this in recently: In the October issue of Nintendo Power, (V. 283), a letter was written concerning Earthbound. The topic of discussion was, “What attractions would you want at a Nintendo theme park?” This letter was written and though it’s not much, it was still neat to see nonetheless I actually resubscribed to Nintendo Power late last year for some reason, bu...Read More »

I feel like I’ve posted this before, but it’s hard to remember everything I’ve posted. At any rate, this is a thing printed in an old issue of Nintendo Power where they covered Japanese games that never came out here: I remember this stuff clearly, it also talked about the bar code battler stuff and even Pokemon some years before it was released here. I also remember thinking ho...Read More »

In the past we’ve looked at a few mentions in old Nintendo Powers of the NES “Earth Bound” game, but there were other less-obvious mentions of the game in the magazine at the time: I think one of the known EB Zero prototype cartridges actually originated from one of Nintendo Power’s game play counselors (none of the ones above, though). For more info on that, see here. The...Read More »

Yesterday we saw an EarthBound Zero thing in the latest Game Informer, and today here’s a look at EarthBound stuff in the latest Nintendo Power! #gallery-1 { margin: auto; } #gallery-1 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 50%; } #gallery-1 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-1 .gallery-caption { ...Read More »

In the past, EarthBound and MOTHER stuff always dominated Nintendo Power’s polls, so there hasn’t been any EarthBound stuff for years. But a couple fans recently e-mailed me to let me know that Nintendo Power’s latest online survey has EarthBound stuff again: I have no doubt which answer will prevail there 😛 Anyway, if you’re interested in seeing the full survey, see he...Read More »


July 27th, 2011 | EarthBound, Images, Polls | 45 Comments

A little while ago Nintendo Power ran an online poll, and the results have been published in the latest issue. The issue also commemorates the 20th anniversary of the Super NES (my god 20 years already???) so there’s a big article that covers a lot of the big Super NES games, EarthBound included. EarthBound’s ranking in the poll isn’t surprising, the game pretty much dominated ...Read More »

I haven’t kept track of Nintendo Power stuff for years now, I’m surprised they’re still doing polls. Apparently the latest one has a bunch of EarthBound-related stuff, so if you’re interested in voting, see here. Just, don’t spam the poll or anything, that’s lame. Vote how you really think, and then have something tasty to eat for no real reason, like a donut. ...Read More »

Josh sent this in the other day. It’s a scan from the latest issue of Nintendo Power, in a section talking about future predictions made in Nintendo games or something like that: (click for full-size) Apparently MOTHER 3 or EB were also mentioned briefly in something in the last issue of Nintendo Power too, but I don’t have any info or scans about that. ...Read More »
