It's an EarthBound kind of week, I'd say. :wink:

Nintendo has made EarthBound available through the Wii U Virtual Console. I guess this is fantastic news for all the people who bought a Wii U during the Christmas season last year. I haven't held out a lot of hope for the console and don't plan on getting one unless they receive more backing from other companies, but if they keep this up and release more rare titles, perhaps it'll boost their sales.

Every week should be an EarthBound kind of week.

I hope EB sells well. I think it will. For people who want to play a legit version, but don't have an SNES and don't want to dump $200+ for a cart (which are rare, of course), this is probably the best way to do it. Of course, this hinges on one having a WiiU, and I doubt anyone will get it just to play a digital copy of a rare SNES game. Either way, though, it's good to see Nintendo FINALLY rerelease it officially.

I wouldn't be surprised if it sells better now than it did on its initial release- the marketing for the game back then was probably one of the most atrocious bits of marketing next to Daikatana.

I think the marketing back in the day was more an attempt to be funny and ironic that just went wrong.
