While the overt connections have been dropped, the trailer still gives out plenty of EarthBound vibes. The art, cast and combat are definitely meant to evoke EarthBound, but the style remains just as appealing now as it always has. There's no release date yet, sadly, but EarthBound fans should be used to waiting. It's been 25 years since the last game to
