Bet you didn’t see that one coming. In a surprise Nintendo Direct Mini broadcast this morning, Nintendo announced that the long lost SNES RPG EarthBound, which was previously confirmed for the Wii U Virtual Console “before the end of the year,” will be available to download starting today.
Unlike other SNES titles, the Virtual Console version of EarthBound retails for $9.99 USD, but this premium price also gets you a digital copy of its strategy guide, which is a nice bonus for fans and newcomers alike.
Will you be downloading EarthBound today? Let us know in the comments!
