Link doesn't work. Try this one: http://fangamer.net/...cts/m3-handbook

And thanks for posting! I've been kicking myself for missing this the first time.:D $42.xx for the hardcover guide and badge, after shipping. A little pricey but whatever.

How about they do the game lol.

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

Sorry about the link (I'm not sure what's wrong), and thanks vinny for adding a link. I personally never even played earthbound/mother series, but I always wanted this handbook.

Got the email tonight announcing the reprinting. I've never been so excited for a guide for a game I haven't played yet.

These pins are sweet too (although I didn't buy them).

Reading the info, it looks like the hardcover was actually updated...

The Handbook is back! Here's what's new in Version 2:

Hardback option
Synthetic cloth case-binding
Debossed and printed with silver foil
Black satin bookmark w/ matching headbands
28-page Enemy Guide
Front and (all-new) back illustrations
Levels, stats, drops, & special info
Easy-reference weakness chart
Dozens of new clay figurine illustrations
Updated Poster Jacket design
Dozens of small design/content tweaks


That kinda sucks for people who bought it originally...

Earthbound?

Nevermind. Earthbound is Mother 2.

Just took a gander through the site. Most of the stuff are a bit pricey (understandable though), however there is something like this available...

Time Wing Schematics (Chrono Trigger) $18.00

Arg! I'm torn. I got the original paperback but my dustcover was ruined. My cover has very slight water damage and I don't need another copy, but the hardcover is very tempting.

i'm in the same position. if anything you can always sell it when they're out of print and get your money back.

is the site down? those links were having trouble earlier when they posted it on facebook, but now the whole fangamer (store) site won't load for me.

I have the original softbound (still in perfect condition), but I think I may need to get this anyway.

I bought the original years back, and it is just about the best quality you will ever see from an american made guide book. This isn't just a strategy guide, but an work of art. If your not into Japanese style guide/art books, pass this by. But if your into supporting a great game that was very lucky to get an english translation, and the guys who did it, please buy this book. You won't be dissapointed.

Great site overall. All of their products are really top-notch and I can't recommend them enough, you'll definitely be pleased with any purchase from fangamer. :) I've probably spent close to $200 there, really great site!

The articles I read seem to conjure up these images of Capcom executives sitting in a dark room with a cauldron and cackling about how no one will be able to buy this game used.


Do you really think I could start a fast food restaurant called McDonaldz and use the golden arches as my logo and get away with it?
