Brian Connor (aka level 1 chef) and friends have been planning the ultimate MOTHER series cookbook for some time, and now it’s about to become a reality! They posted a Kickstarter for the project yesterday, and it’s already about to hit its initial goal. Here are some sample pics: The project has some stretch goals too: I’m particularly looking forward to the Moonside reci...Read More »

The New Japan BGM Philharmonic Orchestra always puts out some amazing music, and it’s always a treat when there’s new MOTHER series stuff. Here are a couple newer ones that I wasn’t aware of: M2 – Smiles & Tears M2 – Gray Hand Bus: M2 – Hospital Theme: M1 – All I Needed Was You: M1 – Wisdom of the World But wait! That’s not all! There...Read More »

Each year, there seems to be more and more EarthBound (well, MOTHER 2) merchandise in the Hobonichi Planner shop. This year there are four new covers for the original A6 planner, a new Weeks cover, and a Mr. Saturn card case: #gallery-1 { margin: auto; } #gallery-1 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-1 img...Read More »

My busy schedule has kept me from EarthBound-related news lately, so here’s a bunch all at once! Disney is for MOTHER 3 Last month there were two “Localize MOTHER 3” signs at wrestling events and then a plea to localize MOTHER 3 on TV via Adult Swim. This month one of Disney’s official Twitter accounts posted a similar request: Waiting for that Mother 3 localization like ...Read More »

I’ve been meaning to post several updates for a while now, so let’s just tackle them all at once! EarthBound on Super NES Classic Mini The rumors came true – Nintendo is releasing a Super NES counterpart to the NES Classic Mini. It’s going to have a bunch of classic SNES games… including EarthBound! It’s also going to feature Starfox 2, which should be really in...Read More »

Jared Claybrooks recently posted a new animation – this one features Ness locked in battle with the Titanic Ant: I really like the fast-paced, over-the-top style of the video, and in many ways it reminds me of an old EarthBound fan comic series, EBZ. In any case, it’s clear a ton of time and dedication went into the animation! If you’ve missed them, Jared has made a few other MO...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 »

I just recently learned that there’s a neat YouTube channel dedicated to showing off things that you can’t normally see in video games, and the most recent video is about EarthBound! Check it out here: The video covers all sorts of things using the walk through walls code, as well as some unused content and some battle stuff. I especially like how it shows how the game’s maps we...Read More »

A reader named Ed sent me some scans of MOTHER series articles from a Korean gaming magazine called “Game Champ”. I don’t speak or read Korean, but it’s still cool to see all of this. It looks like they even gave MOTHER 2 a pretty good review score! #gallery-2 { margin: auto; } #gallery-2 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align...Read More »

The crazy idea I had for years is finally real: I wrote a book about EarthBound’s localization, and it released yesterday! If you’ve visited my old MOTHER 2/EarthBound comparison site in the past, you know a lot of work into it. Even so, I threw almost everything out and started from scratch this time, researching new topics, discovering new things, and interviewing key people. The re...Read More »
