A good middle ground

Reviewed By: Bobolicious81 on 01 Jul 2019

The original retail release of EarthBound was a shining example of localization done right. However, it wasn’t without its own (minor) issues.

This hack goes in with a light touch and tidies up the few instances of typos, errors, and inconsistencies (Pokey-Porky, etc) while keeping the “EarthBound” title and 90’s censorship intact (so yes, Ness is wearing pajamas in Magicant)

Use this patch if you want a polished, official-looking EarthBound that fits nicely with the rest of the series but doesn’t quite go full “Mother 2″

+Note+

Just a heads up, the hack page says version 1.3 but the patches themselves say version 1.2, and although one is labeled “+run” both patches have the run button enabled.

Version 1.3 Recommended - Yes
