Retitled Earthbound Beginnings for its North America debut, Earthbound (Mother in Japan) is finally coming to Wii U Virtual Console.

The game will be available starting at 6:00 p.m. PT today, June 14, and is a fully localized version of the Earthbound prequel that released for NES in Japan in 1989.

All that's left is Earthbound 2 (Mother 3) that released for Game Boy Advance in Japan, and North America will finally have the full trilogy.
