HomeNewsEarthbound Beginnings Releasing in the West Jacob Rifenbery June 14, 2015 News In a rather surprising announcement at the Nintendo World Championships, Earthbound Beginnings, the first game in the Mother series, will be released on the Wii U Virtual Console later today. While it might not be the Mother game everyone wanted to see on the Virtual Console, its localization is still a very nice gesture on Nintendo’s part, and it’s still very much a game worth your time. Anyway, you can see a short trailer below, along with a short message from series creator Shigesato Itoi below. Additionally, you can continue to watch the World Championships here.
