Earthbound 64
Preview By: Shane Sacobie
Developer:   HAL
Publisher:   Nintendo
Genre:   RPG
Est. Release Date:   Cancelled

*Nintendo recently confirmed that Earthbound 64 is officially canned.  That doesn't mean that some of the design work won't appear on the Gamecube though...

Previously planned to be among the launch titles for the 64DD, Earthbound 64 (Mother 3 in Japan) has been shifted to the cartridge format, which casts an even graver shadow on the add-on's future. However, EB 64 will definitely be a welcome title in the N64's lineup, which has been lacking RPG's ever since its launch.

Each of the game's worlds will have a different theme to it (sci-fi, medieval, etc.) and will occur over a ten year period. It's likely that the game will take at least 40 hours to complete. Fortunately, it looks as though one of the RPG genre's biggest flaws (according to some) will be fixed, as the amount of battles will be lowered to give players more of an opportunity to advance without having to worry about getting into one battle per step.

Not much is known about the storyline at the current time, though more is available about that than the game's release date, TBA (To Be Announced). We do know that it takes place shortly after its predecessor. For now, check out the screen shots to the right and below. We'll reveal more information as it becomes available.
