If only Nintendo completed the original Earthbound for NES. They had the cartridge, box art and, everything else ready for realese but, the SNES came out and they thrown it away because they thought it would not sell.

And another thing! Where Kirby’s Adventure? And I LOVED Zelda II!

They did complete Earthbound on the NES, but they didn’t think it would sell well outside of Japan due to it’s wierdness. And incase you go looking for more information, it’s called “Mother” in Japan. Our Earthbound on he SNES is their Mother 2, and recently Mother 3 on the GBA was released.

Nintendo translated the game to English, but never released the game. In 1998, a group of ROM translators discovered that Nintendo had auctioned off a prototype of the EarthBound 0 cartridge. They contacted the individual who had acquired the game, and made an agreement to borrow the game for a few hundred dollars so they could dump the cartridge to a ROM file. That is how we are able to play EarthBound 0 now.

The actual name of the game was “EarthBound”. However, since the sequel to Mother, which was released in North America, is also called EarthBound, the game has been dubbed “EarthBound Zero”.

I know that some people don’t know, but goddamn, refer them to a webpage or something. Don’t try to impress everyone else who knows this common Nin-knowledge. We get it, you’re hardcore. Enough already. Go back to playing your Japanese ROMs.
