Excerpt: The Super Nintendo had no difficulty in the RPG department. Discounting the potential classics never translated into English still leaves the system with a good number of very worthwhile RPGs. Only one title on the Super Nintendo dared to merge the RPG and headlines ripped from the National Enquirer, however.
Excerpt: In the year 199X, a boy named Ness is awakened by a meteor crashing near his home, where he finds a fly from the future, Buzz Buzz, who tells him that an evil being named Giygas has taken over the world in the future, and that Ness is one of the Chosen Four destined to stop him. Nintendo's Earthbound for the Super NES is the sequel to the Japan-only title Mother , and thus far the only entry of the series to see foreign release.
