I’ve got to be honest here. I never thought I’d see the day that Nintendo of America brought EarthBound back in any way shape or form. It’s almost been like a running joke for fans of the franchise.
Back in April of this year, Nintendo announced that EarthBound would hit the Wii U’s virtual console before the end of 2013.
Today, almost entirely without ceremony, Nintendo released EarthBound. It’s selling for $9.99.
If you’re part of the group that’s been begging for EarthBound attention and the potential localization of Mother 3, buy this game. If Nintendo sells a ton, you can bet we’ll see more.
