Earthbound games available via Switch Online today

Oh, mother.

Cult classics Earthbound and Earthbound Beginnings will be available today via the Nintendo Switch Online catalogue.

The pair - previously also available on Wii U - were announced during tonight's big Nintendo Direct broadcast. Alas, there was still no sign of Mother 3.
