Product Information
Life is peaceful in the small town of Onett. Everything is right with the world.

Suddenly, you're startled awake by a loud crash. You grab your cap and head outside to see what caused the noise. After climbing a hill and sneaking by the police, you learn the truth: It's a meteor!

So begins the expedition of a young boy to save the world in Earthbound, a humorous RPG set not in the world of dragons, knights, and wizards, but right here on Earth.

Discovering the meteor is just the beginning. On your adventure, you'll face enemies like the Pogo Punk and Rowdy Mouse, and brandish killer baseball bats and deadly yo-yos. You'll also meet new friends that will aid in your quest to defeat the evil Giygas.

Expect wacky, off-the-wall fun, plenty of challenging battles and a long, epic quest on your way to stopping the alien invasion in Earthbound. The game contains battery-backed memory to record your progress and includes an 128-page Player's Guide.

    This is easily one of the greatest games ever created for the SNES. If you are at all a fan of RPG's, this is a game experience you owe to yourself.

    I had never played Earthbound and at the price being asked by most people, it seemed I wouldn't really get the chance... I mean seriously, who's going to drop $150 on a game they've never played. Then the Wii U virtual console comes through and there's a copy of Earthbound. A couple of days later and I'd determined that I had to own a copy of the game, price be damned. Overall, if you're patient, you can find a copy for a reasonable price.

    Be patient, but play this game.

    This is great game hands down. I think the best thing about it, is its so easy to play. So many RPG's just get so complex you almost get annoyed by that junction this summon this etc. Earthbound has you equip items/Weapons but that's about it. Yes though its NOT a rare game. Popular yes but certainly not rare if it was rare then we would not see price fluctuations during different periods of the year...(Late summer is usually the best time to buy it)....Its just easy to play decent story and combat is simple and that's about it.

    5/5 for a rare gem outside of Japan

    Earthbound is truly an RPG that is one of a kind.

    The game centers around a child named NESS (A play on SNES), who becomes involved-or rather tasked-with the defeat of the Alien invasion of the Gigyas who are attacking earth. NESS travels across eagleland to gather other young individuals like him to defeat Gigya and save the earth.

    The fighting system is similar to other RPGs in which each player takes a turn, each can be affected by a status attack; and each can die. But there are some wonderful changes that have not been seen in RPGs before...or since.

    If a friend dies, you can visit hospitals to pick them up again, other status affects include catching a cold-which can sap away your health slowly, and homesickness which can distract you from battle. Another difference is that once you reach a certain level, other surrounding enemies below your level you encounter will be defeated without segwaying into a fight sequence; you kill the enemy, and get the points immediately.

    This game is a true gem, and is incredibly rare due to horrible sales in the United States. If you love RPGs, I recommend this game highly. It gets a 5/5 without hesitation.
