So as we reported earlier today, Nintendo made some huge announcements today. One of the big ones is Earthbound, or Mother 2 as it’s sometimes known, will finally be coming to the virtual console. This has been a long time coming as fans have begged Nintendo for years to something with the Mother/Earthbound franchise.
For those that have never played it, Earthbound was an rpg for the SNES. The game followed Ness as he and friends tried to defeat a Lovecraftian alien called Giygas. It was very unique, taking place in a modern setting and using very bright cartoon like graphics and quirky humor. Hopefully this will eventually lead to Mother 3 coming to North America and Europe a well. We’ll keep you updated as more news comes in.
