Nintendo has announced that EarthBound Beginnings is coming out in the West. In fact if you own a Wii U you can download the game now in North America, while everyone else will have to wait until Monday morning to be able to get a chance to play the first Mother game. It’s a pretty big announcement to drop before the main Nintendo event has occurred, and may be an indication the Nintendo could be planning to do something more with the franchise.
Of course we don’t know if that will occur or if this is some fan service. It could be Nintendo is testing the waters and seeing how popular EarthBound Beginnings is before decided whether to do a new entry, but only time will tell.
