It's not as funny as Earthbound.
I don't think it was meant to be, I haven't played it but I hear it's much darker in tone.
It's the most depressing video game I've ever played. Spoilers will only prevent you from crying, and I recommend going into it blind. Oddly enough, it still keeps the laid-back tone of its predecessor and despite its subject matter and bold storytelling scope, it never once takes itself too seriously. There's humor all over the place and a lot of the quirkiness that the Mother series is known for. It's just still an overwhelmingly depressing game. It's almost like the way "Up" managed to combine the lighthearted adventure scenes and Dug moments with the Ellie scenes.
I played it on a DSTWO flashcart and a patched ROM. It's pretty much the only flashcart with a GBA emulator and it also has SNES, NES, GBC, and DS emulators. I'd play it on my computer, but I hate not having actual buttons when I play games. It takes away from the experience. I'd tell you exactly where to get everything, but I don't know if giving away that kind of information is allowed on this forum.
