Original Earthbound Released on Wii U

Posted on by Ryan

In what is most definitely huge news for NES and RPG fans. The original Mother/Earthbound game has been released on Wii U’s Virtual Console. Fans in America have called it Earthbound Zero for years, but the new name is Earthbound Beginnings.

For those who don’t know, the original Earthbound for NES was originally suppose to be released here in the United States by Nintendo of America, but was never released due to the cost of manufacturing as it would need additional memory and a battery for saving.
