  • Ouch My Head Said Dionysus

    i was worried this was going to be another case of tiny little action figures for 5000 yen, but 300 yen…earthbound merchandise: forever modest, humble and attainable. :)

    Got the Banpresto ones back them, so kinda cool for now. Really hope Mother 3 get some figures as well in the future.

    I feel like Earthbound is the Mega Man of Nintendo. They’re not at all interested in making any new games, but they’ll certainly milk the fanbase for all they’re worth via re-releases and various trinkets like this.

    I really don’t know why they won’t make another one, or an HD/3DS remake of a previous one at least.

    • Kaetsu

      Shigesato Itoi is the one that doesn’t want to make it.

    • HarakiriKami

      No more like they made a trilogy and now its over.

      No need to dilute it more like every other franchise does. In movies and games alike.

      Except it’s creator declared it over forever and left further sequels up to the fans actually.

    • bob

      I would agree with you if anyone outside Japan got the trinkets.

  • Kaetsu

    I’m surprised these aren’t Amiibos.

    • AuraGuyChris

      I’ll be more surprised if Ness or Lucas doesn’t show up in SSB4.

        They are, as for Ness it’s pretty much like in Brawl.
        They never revealed him during the game’s website when Brawl was still in development. They ended up showing C. Falcon, Ness and Jigglypuff after the game released. It’s pretty much repeating all over again, don’t lose hope.

  • Snorlaxation

    How about for the anniversary, they re-release the game for other continents. I’d like that. I’d BUY that. Please?

    Want.
