Amazon UK list Earthbound for Wii U.

Might just be a download card.
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.

That's horrible to play with our hearts.

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

There is a difference between Amazon US and other Amazon sites, remember another Amazon site listed Kid Icarus for Wii U and that was bullshit

Except Itoi doesn't want to make another one. Not every game needs a successor.

They listed (UK or US?) New Super Luigi U before it was announced has being available for retail, so...
They listed NSLU as a 3DS title instead of Wii U title.

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.

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 am almost certain we will get an Earthbound game on the Wii U in some form. Be patient.
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.
