You Are Not Dreaming – This is Real: Nintendo fans rejoice: EarthBound is coming to the Wii U Virtual Console this year. The original game was created by Shigesato Itoi and released on Super NES in 1995.




Remember that Wii U and Nintendo 3DS feature parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access. For more information about this and other features, visit http://www.nintendo.com/wiiu and http://www.nintendo.com/3ds.



Thanks for making voice acting an a-list pastime.

So happy about this. The game is prohibitively expensive elsewhere.

Great news.

Can't wait to download this on the U

     
Games can and should tell stories and share ideas through their mechanics. This is the intrinsic element of the medium and this is how experiences should be crafted in video games. No company does this as well as Nintendo and their echoes from the past.

It takes the announcement of a sequel to ALttP to make Western Nintendo fans not flip out over an Earthbound announcement...

Have a nice day...

This announcement was much more important than many people realize. Why did they decide to bring Earthbound to NA? Iwata said it was because of all the fan backlash on Miiverse. This means Miiverse is a proven method of getting what we want from Nintendo of Japan! THINK OF THE IMPLICATIONS!

The hidden megaton for me was the fact that they're updating the Wii U so I can play virtual console games on the gamepad itself. (I'm sure this was already known, but I had somehow missed this news). Super excited for Earthbound. =) It's one of my top 5 favorite games of all time.

Aww yeah, the chances for a potential successor have just immensely increased :D



Earthbound 4 for WiiU to be announced on the next direct.

I'm glad. Now I get to see what Chugga is so excited about.
