A surprise announcement from Nintendo Europe today as the SNES classic EarthBound is now available to download on Wii U.
Quite literally out of nowhere, Nintendo launched a mini Nintendo Direct with bite size morsels of downloadable goodies, including a surprise for those wishing to play the classic RPG for the first time. The game was confirmed for a European release earlier this year and is now available to download from 5pm BST today.
A traditional RPG released on the SNES in 1993/1995, Earthbound (known as Mother 2 in Japan) recalls the tale of four characters, including Ness, who possesses strong physchic abilities. The group embark on a quest against invading alien forces.
Will you be grabbing hold of this much loved RPG on Wii U?
