Earthbound is back!!!!!!!!

Woohoo!! The greatest rpg of all time is going to be released along with the first one that was never released here. No word on a US release, but I sure hope so! Been waiting for it since they put Ness in Super Smash Bros. I regretted selling my copy long ago, it was one of the funniest and enjoyable rpgs i've ever played. Back then I got a used copy and didn't get the cards or something that came with it, what were those? Anyone else looking forward to this?

Yeah read about this earlier today, Earthbound is my favorite game of all time (SNES). This is a reason for me to buy the GBA I guess. . .

I remembered that a boxed copy of the game came with the official Nintendo guide. The guide probably had some post cards included.

The boxed version was pretty sweet! I've been waiting for either this title or the sequel for a long time.

Sorry Outlaw, I'm going to have to put Mother/Earthbound in 2nd place okay? (Dragon Warrior is 1st)

BUT THIS IS GREAT NEWS!!

Everything about this game was awesome, the art sytle, the setting, the gameplay!, and the ROCKING MUSIC!!

Earthbound had some of the greatest humor ever seen in a videogame. I can't wait for the GBA version. I also wouldn't mind seeing a Gamecube sequel using the Zelda: TWW graphics engine.

I may be the only person on this planet who actually played through Earthbound and hated it. Sure, it was meant to be a kitchsy sci-fi rpg, but the battle system was dull and some of the gameplay conventions, while innovative, were rather flawed.

Worth playing now as a discount compilation, but it was shadowed by bigger and better games on the SNES (FFII and III, Lufia, etc.)

I guess a US release is out of the question?

I would really die to play this again on the go.

Well, you weren't the only one. At least you played all the way through it. I got maybe 10-15min into the game before I turned it off and tried to return it. What sucks is I spent like $60 on the game which came in an oversized box and included the Players guide. I still have the darn thing somewhere, in storage. This game didn't even come close to being as good as the first FF, imho.

Maybe I'll give it another try once its released on the GBA....

One of the most innovative RPGs ever released.

Too bad people just want assembly line RPGs; same characters, same plots.

yes i did. unknown if released in US, but if it would be released in us, 30$ msrp? since that's about the average for new releases... but this game, is way past its prime, in my opinion.

anyways, i probably could have clarified the question more, but i've been up for way too long, and i forgot

can't you read my mind?

I like Earthbound but despite two efforts I haven't been able to play through the entire thing. Maybe this will let me.

American's want to shoot guns

No NA release date in site.

edit: I'm crossing my fingers that the reason they're taking so long is because they're remaking Earthbound Zero (the 1st one that didn't come to the US) to be included with the game. it was included in the japanese GBA release but was the NES version. The game did well in japan, I don't know about here in the states though. I know I would buy it, and a lot of my friends would too. We loved the game
