EarthBound Out On Virtual Console


EarthBound, the SNES (Super Nintendo Entertainment System) RPG which became incredibly successful and cherished by most, will be available on the Wii U’s Virtual Console as of today. Nintendo confirmed that the classic will be coming to the Virtual Console today in North America and Europe and that a player’s guide for EarthBound will also be put on Nintendo’s site. The game will cost a reasonable $9.99 from the eShop.

On eBay, many EarthBound copies have become increasingly expensive due to the game’s popularity.  Supply and demand was a problem, as there wasn’t enough copies to go around to all EarthBound fans, who desperately wanted a copy of this prized gem. However, from now on this will no longer be a problem for Wii U owners.
