Bound for Earth

The very first title in the critically-acclaimed Mother series is finally coming to the West.

EarthBound Beginnings is the new name for this Western release of the 1989 NES/Famicom prequel to the SNES title EarthBound, which was known as Mother 2 in Japan.

This is the first time that the game has ever been officially available outside of Japan.

EarthBound Beginnings will arrive on the Wii U Virtual Console today in North America (14th June) and in the early hours of tomorrow morning in Europe (15th June).
