Earthbound coming to US Virtual Console this year
Earthbound is finally coming back to America. Nintendo announced this morning that Earthbound will hit the Virtual Console in NA by the end of this year.
Satoru Iwata said this decision was largely due to fan feedback after they announced Earthbound (known as Mother 2 in Japan) would come to Japan’s VC service but not North America.
Iwata worked on the original game so he said he has a sentimental attachment to the game. Earthbound is known to have a lot of licensing issues so its likely Nintendo is still working these out.
Rejoice gamers, Earthbound is being payed attention to by Nintendo once again. I got to admit, I never thought I’d see this day.
