Super Nintendo (SNES)MaternalBound
Download Pre-patched - 2.24 MB Download Patch - 2.15 MB
This hack's goal was to make Earthbound as close to Mother 2 as possible. It takes care of most of the uncensoring that North America made during the localization of Mother 2. Mainly, this hacks aims to create the best experience possible of Mother 2/Earthbound by combining an uncensored version of Earthbound made from scratch (graphical and text-wise). The main game is left intact (without modifying any core-gameplay mechanics). Click here for some screen shots.

The Rat Race

This game, which you might think of as Earthbound for girls, is a project that took several years and a lot of work. Most of what has been changed is character names and the text. Although also thrown in are a few changes in the graphics. There is no “adult” content in this game unless you count a few items de-censored from Mother 2. Click here for some screen shots.

25th Anniversary

Mother: 25th Anniversary Edition aims to make Mother much more enjoyable for both Earthbound fans and those playing it for the first time. All graphics are redrawn from scratch to be more faithful to the clay models. The overworld has been tweaked to be much less bleak and repetitive. There is more scenery, areas are more colorful and confusing areas like Duncan's factory have been simplified. This hack's goal was to make Mother less challenging, but still quite difficult.

Color Correction
Download Pre-patched - 3.88 MB Download Patch - 1.73 KB
As some of you may know, a lot of GBA games have brightened, washed out colors in order to make it easier to see on an unlit GBA. This patch restores the colors back to what they were on NES (for Mother 1 only, the Mother 2 side of the ROM is untouched). The pre-patched download here is Tomato's Mother 1+2 English translation.
