Mother 2 Deluxe

Hack of EarthBound

Description:

The new 2.0 version of Mother 2 Deluxe is a VAST improvement over the old 1.31 version that was here in romhacking.net.

A very small selection of major new features:

  • Massively rebalanced to make the game more fair and less arbitrarily difficult.
  • Jeff has his own Tools menu of his special items to free up his inventory.
  • Many new battle animations for PSI and Jeff’s Tools.
  • New final dungeon to tie Mother 2 and 3 together.
  • Your Places (formerly known as Your Sanctuaries) that can be skipped until later (Lilliput Steps, Milky Well, Magnet Hill, and Pink Cloud) now auto upgrade their enemies and bosses over time to stay at your power level all game.
  • Enemies completely reprogrammed to be very intelligent. Bosses and stronger enemies can detect status ailments on them and heal themselves.
  • New PSI and PSI arrangements and costs.
  • New battle sprites and enemy overworld sprites.

SO MUCH MORE!

Hack requires EBP (Earthbound Patcher) in order to patch.

Does not play nice with Snes9x and Zsnes (why are you using Zsnes!?) Recommended emulators are BSNES and Mesen-S.

The Definitive Earthbound Experience

Reviewed By: MegaHarv on 22 Nov 2021

If you played Earthbound so many times you know it inside and out, then Mother 2 Deluxe is for you. The story follows the same structure as regular Earthbound, although there will be a few extra surprises along the way. Aside from that, almost everything in Mother 2 Deluxe functions in a brand new way!

One thing worth mentioning is the emulator Mesen-S works best with this project. It’s what I would recommend using to get Mother 2 Deluxe going without a fuss.

I’ve been a fan of this project for years, and I appreciate the efforts put in to breath new life into this classic. If you’re looking for an Earthbound ROM that’s true to Mother 2, but still has it’s own identity, then I would highly recommend Mother 2 Deluxe.

Version 2.0 Recommended - Yes
