After the unfortunate death of Buzz Buzz in Earthbound Nintendo Switch Guide Walkthrough: Part Four, the only thing you can do is move on.
Remember Buzz Buzz’s final words as they give you some very obvious exposition before they eventually pass on into the darkness after giving you the Sound Stone. What do you do with the Sound Stone in Earthbound? It is an item that records melodies from “Your Sanctuary” locations. There are eight “Your Sanctuary” locations in Earthbound. However, if you are struggling with inventory in Earthbound, you can simply hand the Sound Stone to Ness’ sister Tracy, and it will still do record melodies.
Earthbound Nintendo Switch Guide Walkthrough: Lier X. Agerate
Now that you are finished with the carnage of Buzz Buzz’s death, it is time to do a little exploring of your own. If you remember from the Earthbound Nintendo Switch Guide Walkthrough: Part Four, the NPC at the top of the mountain at the house wanted you to come back alone.
As you are exploring Earthbound, you will notice little butterflies flying around. These butterflies recover PP when interacted with.
When you head back to your house, you will have your first encounter with The Camera Man. Most of these encounters are avoidable, except for three. This is good to know for those annoyed with these small cut scenes. Where do the pictures from The Camera Man show up? They come at the end of the game with the credits.
Head back into your house where you will tie up some loose ends, such as saving, picking up money from the phone, and recovering any lost HP while sleeping. You can prematurely store the Sound Stone with Tracy if you wish.
Head back up the mountain where you will have some basic auto-battle encounters. Now, you can go into Lier X. Agerate’s house.
Head inside where a grown man will ask a child to go down into the basement.
Once you are in the basement, there is another butterfly if you’ve lost a lot of PP coming up the mountain, which you shouldn’t have.
Follow Lier X. Agerate as he leads you through the tunnels of the mine.
Once you get to the end, he basically tells you to go home. What the point of this was for is beyond us at the moment, but you can check the Golden Statue to see it glowing. The statue has a name, but we will uncover it later due to possible spoilers. Follow GameDom for more Earthbound Nintendo Switch Guides and other news.
