Happy (early) Mother 3 day! (◡‿◡✿)
Ironically, I started playing it over this week and I didn’t even realize tomorrow was Mother 3 day! Have a nice little fanart of the part I stopped at today, the part where you go to the factory and push the Claymen around.
if you ever feel childish remember that this is the leader of one of the most successful companies in the world
I’m not exaggerating when I say that EarthBound is one of my favorite games. It’s the one that taught me games could go beyond being entertaining, they could be important, and have something to say.
The game presents itself as a cute, Peanuts-inspired homage to Americana and disarms you from thinking it could be anything else. And then it shows its true nature and knocks you on your ass.
I know that this game (and its sequel) are in danger of being overhyped. But I implore you, if you grew up in the 90s and missed this game, or if you’re younger and have only heard its reputation, please, please play this game. Do yourself a favor, you will not regret it.
Earthbound will be on Wii U’s Virtual Console in the West this year
itshappening.gif, guys. itshappening.gif. Nintendo of America has not only acknowledged that a game called Earthbound exists — it has decided that humans in North America and Europe should be allowed to play this game on a modern console. We did it.
Also, I love this fanart from Sakusama.
