Earthbound in nintendo power

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I wonder exactly which issues have Earthbound-related content. Only those with screenshots and/or artwork I care about. I know about 70, 73, 94 and 98. I also know there's an early issue previewing NES Earthbound, along with Simcity, but I don't know which one it is. Thanks!

Talk about a game that deserved a cover story. Instead we got such classics like...Weaponlord?

If there was a like button on this forum your comment would have gotten it.

I'm just upset that Nintendo didn't give the Mother series any love here in the US. I've had to resort to playing EB0 and EB3 on emulation. I've even bought a Reproduction cart of EB0 for my NES.

The blurb included in issue 19 is cool for sure. What it shows is actually Mother(the Japanese title) which was never brought officially to America, though you can tell they were close to releasing it here if they were announcing it in their official magazine. The only way to play this game in English now is by finding the Nintendo ROM, titled EarthBound Zero.

I have an article all about EarthBound that I ripped from one issue.. It was definitely in Issue 70 and 73. Issue 70 is a preview and 73 is more in depth and includes a cool interview with Shigesato Itoi.

And of course, our scans of the issues are much better quality:
