EarthBound Beginnings is now available in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U for $6.99. Those looking to purchase the title will need at least 37 MB of free space to download it onto their system. EarthBound Beginnings is a localized version of the original Mother game for Famicom – the Japanese version of NES. It was revealed by the game’s creator, Shigesato Itoi, during yesterday’s Nintendo World Championships 2015 tournament. This is the first time the game is available in the U.S., after making its debut in Japan over 25 years ago.
