Japan finally gets EarthBound on VC, rest of us don't

0

Nintendo, why must you be so.... NNNGG!!

As we learned earlier today, the Wii U will finally be getting a proper Virtual Console this spring, and part of the grand opening is a "Wii U Virtual Console Trial Campaign" in which select titles will be available for a reduced price for a month. Through July, we'll be receiving seven different VC games as part of this promotion, but the selections for the US and Japan are slightly different.

Instead of F-Zero and Punch-Out!!, the Japanese will get Fire Emblem: Monshou no Nazo and Mother 2, a.k.a. EarthBound.

Fire Emblem appeared on the original Japanese VC back in 2006, but this marks the first time EarthBound has appeared in full digital format. That's quite shocking to be honest, but not quite as shocking as learning that WE ARE GETTING SCREWED ONCE AGAIN.

We've told you time and time again, Nintendo, that we want our EarthBound. Jump through all the legal hoops that you need to, but just GET IT DONE! Damn!

(Thanks, Brian!)
