EarthBound Makes an Anime Cameo
Official EarthBound posters are notoriously rare and usually fetch really high prices on eBay. After a year or two of not seeing one, a poster popped up on eBay the other day for $2499. Man, you’d have to beat up like 800 Runaway Dogs to afford that ...Read More »
Good ol’ Fangamer made some EarthBound-related videos recently, so I thought I’d share them. First up is a video for their Awesomeness combo, which features all the stuff you’ll need to save the world: Next is a video for their Franklin pin and Courage badge: I see the folks from Fangamer on a regular basis (they’re just a few miles from where I live), so if you do order ...Read More »
The other day we saw Satoru Iwata tweet about his special MOTHER 2 staff jacket that he found – see here. Today, Shigesato Itoi retweeted Iwata’s message and added, “I found mine.” and posted a photo of his own MOTHER 2 jacket: I wonder just how many were made… ...Read More »
Earlier today, Satoru Iwata posted a tweet about another piece of MOTHER 2 merchandise he has – one of the super-rare MOTHER 2 jackets! Here’s a translation of what he says: Hello, this is Iwata of Nintendo. Continuing with yesterday, here’s another piece of MOTHER 2 merchandise. This is a special sukajan jacket given to the staff. The logo is faithfully recreated in embroidery ...Read More »
In a recent Tweet, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata said: Hello, this is Iwata of Nintendo. A Wii U Virtual Console version of MOTHER 2 will be released on the 20th. It’s a game I personally worked on as a programmer and is full of memories. I found something at my house that really takes me back, so I’m posting a photo of it here. The photo is of a boxed copy of MOTHER 2 that basicall...Read More »
A fan by the name of Ryan recently sent this in: Hey there, I’ve recently been learning how to do leatherworking and finally made something I’m sorta proud of. It’s a Starman wallet. I put an imgur gallery up here. I have an Etsy store where I’m trying to sell it, too. But, that’s probably not important. Just wanted to share with someone ^^ And here’s one of the...Read More »
I haven’t seen a Mach Pizza Air Freshener for sale in a long, long time, so if you’re interested in picking one up, one recently showed up on eBay here! I’m guessing the seller would prefer to sell it with the complete copy of EarthBound. That might put it out of a lot of people’s price range, but maybe he’d be willing to sell it separately if you ask, I dunno. If an...Read More »
Somehow or other I stumbled upon this review of the MOTHER 3 Handbook and thought I’d share it: I wasn’t too involved with the book myself, so every time I see it I’m like, “Oh man, I forgot how much crazy work they put into that thing.” In fact, I haven’t actually read through the entire thing myself yet – there’s too much stuff in there for my bra...Read More »
One of my favorite parts in EarthBound is the Kraken scene – I really like how the map looks totally different while you’re sailing (and the music there!) and then the tiny part where the boat captain throws his slippers at the Kraken. I bring this up because Poe spent days folding allll the Kraken-themed shirts for Fangamer. Apparently they’re back in stock, so if you missed the...Read More »
For the past couple of months I’ve been reporting on the official MOTHER 2 iPhone 5 case that Shigesato Itoi’s company released in Japan. Well, a fan outside of Japan recently imported it and here’s the report! So, I got my Mother 2 case in today direct from Chiba. It cost me $38 and it took a few days to get here, but it was well worth it. It actually only took about 4 days to g...Read More »

- Alex Foffano: Haha! Good!
- Vukadin: Now that I think of it, the Mother games haven’t really inspired me to do anything… They did change my view of the world I...
- Douche Mcallister: No… I might have a crummy memory… But I seem to remember a video with a huge mr. Saturn like this, and it was...
- Douche Mcallister: Really the only difference that stood out to me while playing the GBA version was the sound of PSI moves and the Dusty Dunes...
