A shocking announcement!
Fans of the Earthbound/MOTHER franchise will no doubt recognize the Franklin Badge, as it plays an important role in each of the games. Earthbound creator Shigesato Itoi honored the Franklin Badge not long ago with a real-life version that fans could buy through his Hobonichi, and it turned out to be quite the hit. As of today, Itoi has revealed that the Franklin Badge replica has sold over 10k units!
Earthbound fans probably know that the Franklin Badge has been sold out for quite some time now, as people were quick to scoop it up. Thankfully, if you missed out on your opportunity to snag one the first time around, today brings a second chance.
Itoi has announced that a new wave of Franklin Badges are up for grabs through the Hobonichi online store. You can purchase one for roughly $30, and yes, the Hobonichi store does ship worldwide. Hurry up and grab yours here!
