- 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, 2015 via the Wii U Virtual Console, under the title EarthBound Beginnings.
