If this is a retro/homebrew thread, I'm a helpful poster.

If not, I'm either angry about something minor or ranting about how much GAF sucks because everyone is angry all the time.

This tag will disappear when it is no longer true.

yes, £44.99 for a SNES game.

We know Earthbound is coming on the VC. It won't cost that much, obviously. But why have they finally decided to release Earthbound this year? A remake/successor/mother 4 for the Wii U sounds...like it fits!

hooray, im jumping to conclusions and I love it.

I would pay that price to get a retail copy of Earthbound....and especially if it's a collection of all three mother games.

This. People are getting their hopes too high up.

Although I will say Nintendo has been oddly marketing and hyping up Earthbound's VC release even having posters in japan anouncing its release.

There's no saying Itoi would have to be involved in the project or that he's not just dropping red herrings.

So... what you are saying is that we will get Earthbound 3DS?

I'm totally hyped, but it is very clearly placeholder

Itoi said he won't make another Mother/Earthbound game, doesn't mean Nintendo won't.

We'll see at E3 if this is true.

This was my thought about the price. Throw all in - perhaps with some bonus material - and there you have a great package.

It makes you wonder since Nintendo finally caved on Earthbound SNES... They generally save "big" games like that before they launch a new one in the sequel.


I wouldn't get anyone's hopes too high though, amazon has been known to post things incorrectly in the past.

I wouldn't put much stock in that, personally. It sure would be nice if that ended up being true.

Here's what I said back in January:

I'm thinking the VC release may be the best we get unless they're releasing it to help raise awareness for a brand new title.
