In 2018, Marcus Lindblom, a former Nintendo of America employee (and the man responsible for the English scripts on EarthBound), discovered an old floppy disk that was used during EarthBound’s localization process. Unfortunately, he deleted the EarthBound files long ago, so he therefore forwarded the disc to the Video Game History Foundation.
Since then, Rich Whitehouse has been able to forensically recover all the missing data. This includes all EarthBound script files.
“In the case of Lindblom’s disks, the only new file he wrote after deleting the EarthBound was a small text document only a paragraph long. Astonishingly, because the new data is so tiny. We are therefore able to forensic recovery of all data, deleting EarthBound data with high confidence that nothing has been compromised. It appears to be all EarthBound script files, in the original scripting language presumably used by Japanese game development team Ape.”;
