I just felt a great disturbance in the force, as if a million translated ROMs cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. Nintendo has announced that Mother 2: Earthbound will finally make a downloadable appearance on the European Wii U eShop, meaning that our days of having to sift through eBay or relying on emulators will finally be at an end. Erm, I mean, what?
Earthbound is generally considered to be one of the finest JRPGs ever made, featuring an irreverent storyline and quirky combat mechanics. We couldn't be more excited about this. Release date is currently TBA, but it will launch before year's end.
