Yup, it's happening. In a surprise announcement during the Nintendo World Championships 2015, Nintendo announced a localization of Mother for release on Wii U Virtual Console in North America, which would be called Earthbound Beginnings.
Even more exciting is the fact that it's actually coming tonight and is expected to release at 6pm PT.
This is the first time that Nintendo of America has released any other game in the Mother/Earthbound since Earthbound's original debut in 1995 on the SNES. Or own Jonathan Higgins is predicting a Mother 3 localization announcement as well, and by the look of things right now, he could be on the right track.
For now, you can check out a trailer for the game below.
Are you excited to check out Earthbound Beginnings tonight?
