"Earthbound" is a role-playing game released for the Super Nintendo in 1995. Like most RPGs, "Earthbound" is a long game and most players will not be able to finish it in one sitting. Most RPGs allow you to save at any time through the menu; However, "Earthbound" does not and this can confuse many newer players. To save in "Earthbound," you must use a telephone to call your Dad. Any telephone can be used to make this call.

Press "A" next to any telephone in the game. Telephones can be found inside of your Mother's house, in every Hotel, on the street or in stores.

Select "Dad."

Select "Record."

Select "Continue" to keep playing the game once it has been saved. Select "End" if you wish to turn the game off.


Some phones, such as those found in stores, cost money. The amount of money varies depending on the store.
