The '''EarthBound Player's Guide''' is a massive guidebook that was packaged with [[EarthBound]] as a set. It contains 128 pages, detailing many maps and shops, along with fake newspaper articles. It contains artwork of some of the items in the game, as well as detailed information and clay models of nearly every enemy that appears in the game. Its size was one of the factors that increased the size of EarthBound's box. The back of the guidebook also includes scratch-and-sniff cards. The screenshots depicted in the game appear to be from an earlier version of the English translation of the game, showing many things that were changed for the English release, as well as some subtle text differences.
