eShop Thursday: “Zero” Edition

June 18th, 2015 | Category: Uncategorized

Zero was a pretty special number at this year’s E3. After all, it was the number:

  • used in the next Star Fox game
  • …of f**ks given by the general public for Nintendo’s Digital Event
  • used in the unofficial title for the English version of the first Mother game: EarthBound Zero

Earlier this week, Nintendo and Mother series creator Shigesato Itoi revealed that the NES prequel to EarthBound is already out in the Wii U eShop as EarthBound Beginnings. This is the first time the game has been officially made available in North America.

Also out this week, the Wii U Virtual Console release of Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones and an application that allows the 3DS to be used as a controller in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U without the need for the 3DS version of the game.

Nintendo is also currently offering up to 30 percent off various first- and third-party games on the 3DS and Wii U.
