This summer, the very first Camp Fangamer / EarthBound Bash Mk II is being held July 18 and 19, 2015 in Tucson, Arizona! It’s essentially going to be the first big, genuine EarthBound convention ever… and some of the tentative events I’ve heard about sound really cool.

For now, here’s a quick teaser video:

And you can check out all the details and how to attend and how to volunteer here!

I’ll share more info and details here on EB Central as we get closer to the event date :D

The creator of the impressive Hyperbound EarthBound hack has been working diligently on one of the biggest EarthBound hacks ever, called Unearthed. It’s a little bit different from your standard EarthBound hack, though:

Unearthed is centered around a fairly simple plot – one that draws influences from Labyrinth, Cave Story, Fraggle Rock and many other sources. Through a series of unlikely events, Mitchell (our protagonist) is thrust into an underground world in search of his younger brother Chase. There he encounters strange creatures and exotic locations, and gets caught up in the trials and tribulations of this newly discovered realm.

Unearthed hit a milestone the other day – all 140 new enemies have been implemented and added to the hack. You can see a little bit of them in this recent video:

If you’re interested and would like to keep up with the project, follow the creator’s Twitter account here!

In EarthBound, Orange Kid is working on a silly invention to turn boiled eggs back into raw eggs. We all had a good laugh.

But now chemists have just accomplished that in real life! Check it out here!

Thanks to crabbyRhys for the tip!

A Japanese MOTHER fan posted a photo of an Onett-themed rubber ink stamp thing on Twitter the other day, and it’s pretty cool!

Even Shigesato Itoi was impressed enough to retweet it!

Supergamerk sent me this video of a battle with Diamond Dog in EarthBound. It starts out normal but ends in a silly way:

I wonder if this would be useful for speedrunners in some way, or if there’s a quicker way to beat Diamond Dog.

Just a few hours ago, Nintendo announced that an upcoming wave of Amiibo figures will finally include Ness!

142124775688

I think most Amiibo followers knew a Ness figure was going to be released eventually, but now it’s official. And assuming prices don’t change, it should be in the $13 range when released! …Although I’ve been hearing so much about Amiibo shortages and price gouging the past few weeks that I don’t know what to think anymore. It’s insane.

Anyway, I’m not 100% sure, but I think this might be the first new, official EarthBound merchandise to be released in years and/or decades 8O

A while back, Liz Kirby e-mailed me about custom-made, EarthBound-themed wedding invitations!

Hello!

My fiancee and I are both diehard fans of EarthBound, so of course we had to have something EarthBound-related for our wedding! I thought I’d share with you our EarthBound wedding invitations.

Each one was made by hand, “pixel” by “pixel.” It took a lot of time and energy, but it was very worth it in the end! I hope you enjoy it.

And here’s a look at them, along with more info:


We made around 70 boxes in the end by hand, including placing each “pixel” on the bow. If you’re wondering how we shipped them, we didn’t, for the most part.


Ness opened the present.


There is a Cookie inside!

The original plan was to have the wedding information on the inside flaps, but in the end we kept the information on separate cards, so people could use the boxes however they wanted.


Sorry, Tony, these aren’t for your birthday.

Such a cool and creative idea! Thanks for sharing these pics!

EBfan sent this quick message to me:

I don’t know if this was already posted but while surfing on the web, I came across a youtuber called Biddy Diddle (Feathery-Wings on deviantart) who made a really awesome Ninten plush doll last year. The amount of work put into it is amazing and it even sings!

Whoa, it even sings???

Here’s a look at the doll:

And here’s a video about it and how it was made:

So, so much work went into this! My brain can’t handle it!

Last year I uploaded some custom-made tools that would let fans translate MOTHER 3 into other languages. Around the same time, I also suggested that fans could try their hand at rewriting the existing English translation if they felt up to it.

Immediately, crabbyRhys took up this task and worked hard at it for many months. At last, the rewritten script is complete and available as a patch – you can find out more info and download the patch here!

Here’s an excerpt from the readme file:

As for changes, they are too numerous to list in detail. Kumatora’s lines were almost completely broken down and redone with much more personality. Several other characters have had some more personality injected into their lines. Many of the jokes here and there were altered to rely less on Japanese style puns. There are about a thousand little tweaks to improve the flow of the dialogue. Many things will seems a little different, and many things will seem very much the same.

I’m still hoping someone can make a Klingon translation someday!

Secret_Saturn_Valley_in_Mother_by_GreggJanus

A while ago I stumbled upon this cool image of what an EarthBound Zero Saturn Valley might look like. I’m not sure where it originated, but it looks like it was made by a Gregg Janus. Awesome work!
