Movies based on video games are normally garbage, but movies ABOUT games are great! That said, EarthBound, USA sounds like an absolute delight.
The film is headed to Kickstarter in 2015, and wasn’t supposed to be announced for a bit longer. However, Shigesato Itoi, creator of the MOTHER/EarthBound series, Tweeted about an interview conducted for the movie. The film was officially announced on this site, and will be focused on the US EarthBound community, and their continued struggles to bring attention to the series and be recognized by Nintendo. Fangamer and Starmen.net are the main focuses of the movement.
Once a Kickstarter is announced, we will of course cover this in more detail. For now, get hype! Maybe Nintendo will see the excitement and love behind this film and bring MOTHER 3 overseas.
