- This is the first game in the Mother series. For
other games in the series see the Mother category.
Mother is the predecessor to EarthBound (Mother 2), the first game in the
Mother series to be released in English. An English prototype
exists but was never released. Mother has since been released on
the Game Boy Advance as part of Mother 1+2; this also has not been localized.
This guide is written with the English prototype in mind, although
most of the time it will fit the Japanese version as well. The NES
version was later localized and released for the first time
worldwide in North America, Europe and Australia on June 15,
the Wii U Virtual
Console, under the title EarthBound Beginnings.
