Mother 1 Coming to Wii U Virtual Console as EarthBound Beginnings June 14, 2015Posted by Maniac in Game News.
EarthBound was released on the Super Nintendo in 1995. It was an epic RPG which quickly gained a cult following. Unfortunately, many people from my side of the planet had no idea that Nintendo had released two other EarthBound games in Japan. The first game was released on the Famicom (the Japanese name for the NES) under the name Mother, and the third was released on the Game Boy Advance under the name Mother 3. Nintendo fans have been waiting for over twenty years for either of these games to get officially released in North America.
During the Nintendo World Championships tonight, Nintendo officially announced that the first Mother game, which they are calling EarthBound Beginnings, is coming to the Wii U’s Virtual Console! Take a look!
EarthBound Beginnings is launching at 9PM EST tonight exclusively on the Wii U Virtual Console!
