  1. 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?

  3. This is just a neat little thing. Nintendo released the Earthbound Player's Guide in digital forms for free alongside the release of the game. That's pretty kind of them! There's two versions: The normal PDF version, and a version optimized for use with the Wii U Gamepad. I'm not sure if you can actually use the internet browser while in a game, but if you can, that would be very convenient! Anyway, enjoy!

    Nintendo Download: Featured Games 7/18/13

    Another Thursday, another Nintendo Download update; however, this week's update isn't just any old update. You might have heard that a little game called Earthbound was released on the Wii U eShop today. Fans have been waiting for the cult RPG to hit the VC ever since the service was announced with the Wii, but the game famously never appeared on it until now. In addition, the WayForward's GBC platformer classic Shantae finally makes its way to the 3DS eShop along with the next installment in Level-5's Guild 02 series, Attack of the Friday Monsters! A Tokyo Tale. Check out the full list of games below- Wii U eShop Earthbound (SNES VC) The Smurfs 2 (available 7/23) 3DS eShop Shantae Attack of the Friday Monsters! A Tokyo Tale Robot Rescue 3D Undead Bowling (Full game and Demo) The "DENPA" Men 2: Beyond the Waves Demo DSiware No new titles Sales Puddle (Wii U eShop) - $4.49 until 9am PT on Aug 1
  5. It's the moment many Wii U owners have been waiting for... Earthbound is now available for download in the Wii U eShop! The title was released today and will cost $9.99; certainly much cheaper than the price of an original copy. Earthbound, as many are aware, is known as a great game and also quite the pricey one: Copies of the SNES cartridge often go for several hundred dollars, leaving many that would want to play the game with no option. However, after many fans begged for it, Nintendo announced during one of its Directs that Earthbound would get a release on the Wii U Virtual Console, though there was no release date for the title. Also, let's check out Nintendo's description of the game, available over at the game's page: Bizarre aliens roam the Earth! Can four average kids save the world from certain destruction? Intergalactic terror strikes the small town of Onett as a blazing extraterrestrial object crashes in the night! The Earth now faces imminent destruction by the universal evil threat, Giygas. A courageous boy names Ness, and his three friends, vow to save the planet from hideous destruction! Battle hundreds of off-the-wall monsters, roaming dinosaurs and alien enemies! Journey to exotic locations like Saturn Valley, Dusty Dunes Desert, and Deep Darkness. The ultimate test lies in the impending encounter with the all-powerful Giygas! Will you be downloading Earthbound today or in the future?
  6. I didn't feel like writing an article about this one. Nintendo Direct today was focused mainly on the 3DS, and all that awesomeness you can see in our articles and around the Internet. However, there was an awesoem Wii U annoucement too... Earthbound is coming to the Wii U eShop sometime this year. Now, everyone wanting to play the game, but not shell out ludicrious prices, can finally enjoy this classic. Anyone else super exicited for this? I know I am!
  7. With the wonderful news that Earthbound will finally be making its way onto Nintendo's Virtual Console, there seems to be some newfound hope that Nintendo actually cares about the Mother series and is listening to fans' pleas. So much, that Clyde Mandelin is offering his team's Mother 3 fan translation to Nintendo in an effort to get the game published here. Mandelin is completely aware of the staggering costs that come out of translating games, especially one of the size of Mother 3. He also says he'll edit whatever is necessary; even retranslate everything from scratch. And the best part? He's offering all of this for free. "Just whatever it takes to get an official release out," Mandelin explains. Companies have used fan translations in official releases before. An example that Mandelin gives is Ys: The Oath in Felghana. Who knows if Nintendo is the kind of company to accept this offer, though?

    EarthBound Creator Has Something On the Way

    The popular Japanese RPG series known as Mother has only had one game released in the states - a Super Nintendo gem known as EarthBound (Mother 2). The game ended up being pretty successful in the U.S., boasting a fairly large cult following that still exists today. Not to mention it was insanely popular over in Japan. But even with its American love, EarthBound remains the only Mother game released outside of Japan, and hasn't even seen itself on Nintendo's Virtual Console yet. But all that may very well change. The father of Mother, Shigesato Itoi, has recently tweeted some pretty valuable information regarding the future of the series: "Since I“m allowed to drop it on you all now, I“ll just go ahead and say it. The 'Mother re-release' I“d mentioned a bit before, we“re making progress on that. It“s not 4! We“re trying to get Mother working again right now. I still can“t mention any details, but I have to make clear that this isn“t ”4“!" It appears that a Mother re-release is in the works over in Japan (and definitely NOT a Mother 4). What could it be, though? It's possible that the Mother 1 + 2 collection the GBA got in Japan could be getting a Virtual Console re-release on the 3DS, and perhaps Mother 3 could be thrown into the mix as well. If this happens, there's a much greater chance than in the past for the rest of the series to finally be released in the states, since digital distribution makes these things a whole lot easier on everyone. Would you like to see EarthBound come to Virtual Console? How would you like to see the rest of the Mother series being released outside of Japan at long last?

    Complete Earthbound for SNES

    From the album: Classic Gaming Expo 2012 (CGX 2K12) Photo Album

    "The Sega CDX (or Multi-Mega outside of North America) was a 16-bit video game console released in 1994, combining the Genesis/Mega-Drive and one of its add-ons, the Sega CD/Mega-CD, into a single compact unit. It could do almost everything the larger Sega CD could do, only portably so."
