The wait is finally over.
Nintendo has announced that the cult-classic SNES RPG, Earthbound, will be available on the Wii U Virtual Console in North America and Europe starting today. First announced for the Virtual Console during an April Nintendo Direct, Earthbound has been on many fans wish list for the online service since its inception in 2006. Aside from the game itself being available for the first time in digital retail form (not counting ROMs, mind you), Nintendo will also be providing the game’s strategy guide online for use on the Wii U’s GamePad.
Earthbound will retail for $9.99. Happy gaming, Earthbound fans.
