MOTHER Restored is a patch for EarthBound Beginnings that aims to make it as faithful as possible to the Japanese version of MOTHER while keeping its gameplay improvements.
In this patch:
The game’s script has been completely replaced with the more accurate translation done by Tomato for MOTHER1+2, including dialogue, battle text, item and enemy descriptions, and other miscellaneous text. Unlike previous attempts to replace EarthBound Beginnings’ dialogue, this patch repoints virtually all of the text in the game. This allowed the fan translation to be included in its entirety. The main version also makes names of characters, locations, and items more accurate to what they were originally.
Graphics that were altered in localization have also been restored, including:
- The title screen
- Character sprites
- Enemy sprites
- Various crosses throughout the game
- The text on the world map
- The “YOU WIN!” font
Included are two versions:
MOTHER Restored: This version makes the names of characters, items, and locations closely match the Japanese game.
MOTHER Restored (1+2 Edition): This version has the same character, item, and location names as the MOTHER1+2 fan translation. Pick this if you want to keep continuity with the official release of EarthBound.
When patching, apply to an unmodified copy of the prototype ROM. It should be called “Earth Bound (USA) (Proto)”. For more detailed instructions, please check the readme.
