Easier than paying hundreds for the physical version...

Via Twitter, Nintendo of America shared the strategy guide for Earthbound, the Nintendo Player’s Guide. Originally for the SNES, this guide has over 100 pages of tips about combat, what to do in each town, as well as charts on weapons, protection, and food. The guide is well-known (even among non-Earthbound lovers) because it retains the loving charm of the second title in the Mother series. Most famous in the strategy guide are its sections on each town, which are stylized like a vacation pamphlet.

You can check out the strategy guide here, as well as read the trivia Nintendo provided for Earthbound and Earthbound Beginnings (Mother 1), via Nintendo of America’s tweet.

I (Elizabeth) am a news writer here. I enjoy all genres of games, but RPG's are my favorite. I try to play a little bit of everything, leading to an excessive backlog :). I view games as an experience to enjoy as well as an interesting study on how the medium evolves. @OnettQueen

You forgot to mention why they made the joke that it doesn't stink, ie the stinky stickers in the original.
