Earthbound Celebrating Its 20th Anniversary

The quirky little SNES RPG Earthbound is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. What do we get for it? A new game? HAH. We wish.

No, instead what we are getting is a short message from creator Shigesato Itoi in choose your own adventure form.

It’s already been 20 years since the release of Earthbound [Mother 2 in Japanese].

… does that make you happy?

Yes: me too.

No: Then be happy.

Shigesato Itoi,

August 27th, 2014.

In addition, there is now a new Earthbound Book Cover and Earthbound Waistband that is on sale, but no new game.

Luckily, a group of fans IS making a new Earthbound game, due out this winter. Check it out at
