Last week, we heard how a creative Animal Crossing: New Horizons player recreated Hyrule from The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past, and now this week, a Japanese player has transformed their island paradise into a place that looks similar to Onett – a town from the fan-favourite Nintendo RPG, EarthBound.
As you can see in the video recording above, the player uses real sprites to capture the look of the original game and is even wearing the same outfit as the protagonist, Ness. There are also some Undertale references in there as well. Sadly, it's probably as close as we'll get to a new EarthBound game anytime soon. Of course, we would always be happy with a re-release of the classic entries on the Switch. Make it happen, Nintendo!
Have you created a themed island in Animal Crossing like this or the Zelda one? Leave a comment below.
Wow I admire the effort that went into this.
We’ll get Earthbound right after Half Life Three is released.
Beautiful! I'm happy I finally got to play and beat Earthbound on the Wii U VC. I can still play it again on my SNES mini if I'd like. I'm playing Mother 3 on a fan translation cart on my SP 101. Pretty amazing.
@GrandScribe are we going to get a spinoff then?
Wow, this is impressive
Toby Fox' self insert doggo is there as well.
I too feel sad for the state of Mother...
Reggie would love this
Its sad that the creator of Earthbound has no desire to continue the series. On one hand, I do support his decision of 3 being the end of the series. Now and days it's hard to come to terms with a series ending for good, even properties like Starwars and Lord of the Rings continue to move on with new continuations despite the creators no longer being involved with the projects. But on the other hand, remastering the Mother games would not be that bad. All its doing is giving a new audience a chance to experience the same game in a new coat of paint. But the creator has had a ton of people prepose a Mother remaster too him, and he has turned every single one down. There is almost no hope on a new, or remastered, Mother title if the creator is deadset on the series staying dead. And Nintendo wouldn't dare make a new entry without his involvement, it just wouldn't be a Mother game without him heading the project. It'd be a hollow shell.
Sans is now a part of Onett.
The creative effort that went into that is actually pretty effing inspiring.
@GrandScribe Sadly the meme is coming to an end. No doubt after how much of a success Half-Life Alyx was, Half-Life 3 may finally be in the works.
Wow it's amazing how talented some people are!My island still looks more or less the same as when I started but with a few more buildings lol.
Had no idea this was even possible in Animal Crossing. Love seeing how creative people can be, would never be able to do anything close to that myself.
@patbacknitro18 Yeah, right. It's not like there's ever not been huge interest in a third Half-Life game in the... checks notes ... SIXTEEN YEARS since Half Life 2 came out. Maybe after all this time Valve felt they needed to release some sort of buffer project to gain actual interest in continuing the series before committing to a full sequel, but it's just as likely Half-Life 3 will never happen. I hope I'm wrong, but I'll believe it when I see it and not a moment before.
@Donald_M Fauntleroy, you ok there?
Actually the Mother 4 fan project is the closest we will get to a new Earthbound game. Like seriously have you ever played Earthbound?
@Wazeddie22 I have maxed out 10 villagers, Nook & Cranny, Mabel's, museum, lots of stuff, and my island is still basically Gilligan's Island. Isn't that why peopel get away to live on an island, to be on an island? If they wanted sidewalks, fences and stuff might as well stay on the mainland in a city. No ryhme, no reason, just nature.
That's my story and I'm sticking with it.
@Panba yep Earthbound cooking is on the way.
@patbacknitro18 they’ve known there’s been a lot of interest for Half Life 3 for years yet nada so while they’re happy with what the spinoff accomplished I can’t get my hope up
Its been tainted with a dust bunny
@rjejr Good point!They really shouldn't of bothered with the whole island thing then.
In that case my islands probably better than this one.
@Wazeddie22 Funny thing, KK Slider just came and played on my island this morning and opened up terraforming for me. Not exactly sure what the correlation is between those 2 but that's what happened. And I have to say, I can imagine people doing that now. I called it AC crack. I still wont' go that crazy, but I may highlight a few walkways among my dinosaur bones for a path.
