Mother is Now Available on the Wii U eShop as EarthBound Beginnings
In a surprise move, Nintendo announced that Wii U owners will be able to download Earthbound Beginnings from the eShop today.
EarthBound Beginnings is the new name for Mother, the Nintendo Entertainment System role-playing game released in 1989. Mother is an enjoyable, albeit grind-heavy game in its own right, but has endured a legacy for being the precursor to EarthBound.
Nintendo is aware of this, it seems, as changing Mother’s name to EarthBound Beginnings is a wise way to capitalize on the cult success of the SNES game.
EarthBound Beginnings is now available for download through the Wii U eShop.
