PSA: Earthbound’s Must-Have Original Strategy Guide Is Available as a Digital Download


Yesterday’s Nintendo Direct was a very decent showing, and one announcement, in particular, should have fans of an iconic Nintendo classic excited: the release of Earthbound on Nintendo Switch Online. If you count yourself among those itching to either play or replay the trilogy then the availability of its original strategy guide is something you absolutely need to know about.

Now available as a digital download, the original guide is the perfect companion booklet for the game that essentially offers the most robust walkthrough and reference you’ll find anywhere. It’s also just a huge nostalgia trip and a throwback to an age-gone-by that’s really worth checking out. Here’s the link.

If you’re not up to speed, Earthbound, which was originally released on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, is a role-playing game where four children team up to save the world. Earthbound Beginnings, also known as Mother, is the first game in the trilogy that was originally released on the Famicom exclusively in Japan.

You can watch the trailer for Earthbound and Earthbound Beginnings joining the NSO lineup below.
