Earthbound bound for the U.S. and Europe!!!
As many of you may know, as of April 17, 2013 Nintendo had their latest edition of their Nintendo Direct public service announcements. As such I've provided a link to the video itself. There were quite a few important updates regarding games coming for the Nintendo 3DS as well as a few more in-depth looks at Wii U titles such as Pikmin 3. I however was floored with the announcement that Europe and the United States would be getting Earthbound (a.k.a Mother 2) for the Wii U Virtual console later this year.
Although I've never personally had the opportunity to play this game, I already plan on purchasing it when it's available on the Nintendo Virtual Console E-Shop. I've heard nothing but praise and admiration for this title and even though I had an SNES when I was a kid, I missed out on this iconic masterpiece. Check out the video below and tell me if you've been waiting a long time for this game to arrive!!!
