Nintendo has listed EarthBound's Wii U release for today

Wait what?! The classic RPG hits the Wii U for $9.99

[Update: Nintendo has confirmed today's release date and the $9.99 price point. You can find the official Player's Guide here, and the trailer above.]

In a bizarre turn of events, Nintendo may be gearing up to release EarthBound on the Wii U Virtual Console today for $9.99. Thanks to a listing spotted on Nintendo's official website, it appears as if the game will be dropping in multiple regions.

Why Nintendo would release the game with zero fanfare is unknown, but stand by for official word from the Big N anytime now, as I prepare today's issue of Nintendo Download.

Either way, I'm officially freaking out.

EarthBound [Nintendo]
