On the occasion of the release of the game for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers, Nintendo has released the official guide from Earthbound fit completely free as a PDF.
Earthbound Official Guide
The Official Earthbound Guide was released in 1995, along with the North American version of the game. It consisted of 128 pages and, as you can imagine, explained in detail how to end the adventure, also revealing its secrets more hidden.
Probably Nintendo has decided to make the guide available to help modern players, who could be put in difficulty by a title from the past. Or he did it to give a nice tribute to his subscribers.
Be that as it may, Earthbound and Earthbound Beginnings are now available on Nintendo Switch and are still a great game to play, despite the years that have passed since their original release (actually Earthbound Beginnings arrived in our country very late, that is in 2015, on the Virtual Console of Wii U).
Who knows if Nintendo will listen to the fans and sooner or later will also officially translate Mother 3 (Earthbound 3), which for now remains only in Japanese and relegated to the Game Boy Advance.
