The Original Mother Game Has Finally Made It to the United States

Mother, Earthbound Beginnings

A miracle has happened: Nintendo has finally brought the original Mother game to the U.S.A.

This comes in the form of Earthbound Beginnings, a downloadable title for the Wii U on Nintendo’s eShop available right freaking now.

The news is pretty incredible, because even though the game came out in Japan way back in 1989, it’s never had an official English language release until now.

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that if enough people pick this one up, we might actually see the third entry in the series, Mother 3 — which is widely regarded as one of the best video games of all time — come Stateside eventually. It’s worth crossing our fingers for, anyway.
