Nintendo Minute’s “Backlog Buster” Takes A Look At EarthBound



Last week’s Nintendo Minute featured the start of a brand-new series called “Backlog Buster.” In the first episode, Kit and Krysta take a look at EarthBound. To see them play through a bit of the game, as well as hear their impressions of it, you can check out the video below.


Earthbound, known as Mother 2 in Japan, originally released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System back on August 27, 1994 in Japan and on June 1, 1995 in North America. The game follows a 13-year-old boy named Ness with psychic powers as he searches the world for eight melodies to save the future from a malicious alien.
