Earthbound is Recreated in Mind Blowing 3D

Earthbound has long been a game that fans have clamored for to get a sequel, or an HD remaster. Despite the small inclusions the series has seen in games like Super Smash Bros., it has not had a modern sequel or recreation—that is, until now … Well, sort of.

Christopher Behr is a designer who just so happens to be a huge fan of Earthbound. His goal was to recreate the town of Onett, which is the city you find yourself in during Earthbound‘s opening chapter.

He did just that, a task that took him roughly a year to finish, using Cinema 4D and Photoshop. Unfortunately, this is not a playable game in any fashion, but it does make you think of what a 3D Earthbound would look like.
