No crying until the end.

Mother is a Role Playing Game, developed by Shigesato Itoi's company APE with some assistance of Pax Softnica, and released by Nintendo in 1989, only in Japan. It is the first game in the Mother series, and is the only entry of the Mother series available in the VGM scene at the moment. The game was supposed to reach in the US stores under the name Earth Bound at 1991-09, but due to high pressure of SNES sales as well another pressure for his concurrent, the plans of release was scrapped. A ROM dump of the unreleased US version is available. This ROM was released onto Wii U Virtual Console as EarthBound Beginnings. It was succedded by MOTHER2, known as EarthBound in the US.
