Can you believe it!? The critically acclaimed, fan favorite, certified stinky Super NES classic EarthBound is ON SALE in the North American Wii U eShop! This is a limited time deal, and a once in a lifetime chance to add this gem to your digital entertainment collection.

Rabid fans have been known to spend hundreds of dollars for the pleasure of owning their very own copy. Why part with so much of your hard-earned dough when you can have the same experience for a mere fraction of the cost!

Would you pay $800 for this game? How about $600? $400 smack-a-roos? Does $200 sound like a real bargain. Well sit back, because I’m about to blow your socks off!


$6.99!!


This smokin’ hot deal is part of the third week of @nintendo’s Winter Warm-Up Sale in the Wii U eShop. The game normally sells for $9.99 (because it’s just that good), but you can get it for this bargain price until February 4th. Tell your neighbors. Tell your mailman. Write your pen pal!

BUT WAIT! There’s more. This digital copy of EarthBound comes with a 100% free, no strings attached, copy of the original Player’s Guide straight from the Pros at Nintendo Power! WHOA!! You can take a peek right here, on this handy website Nintendo made for the Wii U Virtual Console release of the game. (Even if you don’t buy the game, you can still look at the digital guide to your heart’s content. Maybe it’ll even give that extra nudge you need to get this great game. Did I mention it’s a great game!!)

January 22 is the launch of the Lucas amiibo in the west! You can find him at most major retail chains that carry video games. If you can’t make it out to a store today, there are plenty of online options as well. Hurry, though. A few places are already reporting low stock.

This is the first piece of MOTHER 3 merchandise to make it out of Japan. We hope you’re as excited about this as we are. Buying one might show Nintendo how dedicated EarthBound fans are over here. You never know! Just don’t let him sit neglected on store shelves like those poor Animal Crossing amiibo. Make sure this guy sells out. (and hopefully get a restock or two!) Why buy just one? They make great gifts for family and friends. Who wouldn’t love to unwrap a little Lucas of their very own?

That’s right folks, charge your 3DSs and dust off that Wii U GamePad because Starmen.Net is hosting a Miiverse Siege to get people talking about MOTHER 3! If you’re unfamiliar with what a Siege is, check out this page right here, but here’s the gist of it:

Given Nintendo’s recent attention to the MOTHER series with the inclusion of Lucas in Smash Bros. for Wii U & 3DS, the release of EarthBound Beginnings and EarthBound on the NA Virtual Console, it would seem that the chance for an English localization of MOTHER 3 is at its peak now more than ever! To top it off, we were all surprised and excited when MOTHER 3 was released on the Wii U Virtual Console in Japan a little over 2 weeks ago, bringing along with it a brand new MOTHER 3 Miiverse Community, which is where we’ll be focusing our efforts for this last Siege!

Sounds great! How can I participate?

For this event, we’ll be asking you to head on over to that Miiverse community on one of your current gen consoles, and post your art telling the world how great MOTHER 3 is, and how much it would mean to you to see an official English localization! With enough quality posts, we may just catch someone’s attention!

If the Miiverse community isn’t showing up on your console, on the Miiverse page (At the top of the main Miiverse page on Wii U, but at the bottom on the 3DS) there is a drop down menu that should show your default region – Americas or Europe and Oceania. Change that to Japan and that should fix the problem!

There are, however, a few rules and guidelines we’d ask every participant to take note of:

  1. Do make your masterpiece on a current gen console!
  2. Do post your creation to the Miiverse! (with an optional tag of #Mother3)
  3. Do link your post back in the official topic to let people know how awesome you are!
  1. Don’t mention Starmen.Net in any of these posts, as that would constitute advertising and will most likely mean your post will get taken down!
  2. Don’t spam the community with contentless or low-effort posts!
  3. Don’t be rude or overly demanding! The goal is to show Nintendo how dedicated, not annoying, MOTHER fans are!

There’s no limit on how many posts you can make, so remember not to spam the community with drawings that took little to no effort to make. The aim here is to post with quality and not just quantity!

THERE’S NO SET DEADLINE, BUT THE MORE POSTS THE BETTER!

This is most likely the last Siege this site will ever see, so unless there’s a new MOTHER game in the works in Itoi’s secret laboratory, this is your last chance to band together and show Nintendo just how much an official release of MOTHER 3 in English would mean to you! With the 10th anniversary of this game coming up this year, the time is ripe for every MOTHER fan to show the world that we’re still as determined and excited for the game as we were 10 years ago. Don’t have a Wii U or 3DS? Post on Twitter or Tumblr with the hashtag #Mother3World to share your favourite posts and get the word out to help the cause!

Browse the MOTHER 3 Miiverse!

Here’s hoping for a 2016 localization, and good luck everyone!

Now that I’ve made all the protags (incl. Claus), they can pose for a big, epic photo.

An epically adorable photo.
