Earthbound is coming to Virtual Console

EB Do you guys remember when Shigesato Itoi teased a Mother/Earthbound re-release on his Twitter account, well this is going to happen sooner than expected. Because Earthbound, or should I rather say Mother 2 is coming to the Japanese Virtual Console to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Famicom, the Japanese version of the NES. Mother 2 is going to be available for download starting the March. The American eShop won´t see a Mother re-release, instead we are getting Punch Out! Featuring Mr. Dream. American Earthbound fans should not see this as bad news because a Japanese Virtual Console release of Earthbound brings us also a step closer to a English re-release, but for now we won´t get it.

Once there is more on this topic we will updated you.
