The Earth is under attack by a strange group of aliens known as Giygas, and only a young boy and his friends have the power to save the planet. Unlike more traditional RPGs, EARTHBOUND actually takes place in a modern-day suburb featuring all kinds of wacky twists and turns. You're Ness, and along with your pals Paula, Jeff, and Poo you've got to hunt down the aliens sending them back to where they came. Armed with a baseball bat and psychic powers, your party must hit the road in search of the extraterrestrial scum. Along the way, you'll encounter all kinds of weird characters who will give you high-tech gadgets, time machines, and other items you'll need to prevail. The fate of the world is in your hands!
