After lots of waiting Nintendo finally delivered what a number of Nintendo Switch Online subscribers have demanded - EarthBound and EarthBound Beginnings were released on the NES and SNES apps. Nintendo didn't go above and beyond and deliver us a localised iteration of Mother 3, sadly, but titles that were previously individual purchases on the Wii U eShop are now part of the standard online subscription.

Of the two EarthBound is the one that was most desired, and Nintendo is once again sharing the full Player's Guide from back in the day. It's a real nostalgia trip (those '90s fonts!) and well over a hundred pages, so it's well worth a look.

Still, it's Nintendo, so it can be hard work to find. Some on social media found it in the Nintendo Switch Online app on the HOME screen, but we couldn't see it there. We did find it buried at the bottom of the article promoting the games in the 'News' tab. There's a screengrab with the QR code below if you want to download the PDF to your phone; if you want a direct link just go to this page.

We think this was made available with the previous Wii U eShop release, but a reminder doesn't hurt!

If you'll excuse us we're going to pretend it's the 1990s and give it a good read.
