Earthbound on Wii U Virtual Console Today

Today, Nintendo announced that Earthbound, the SNES cult-classic, had launched on the Wii U eShop for the Virtual Console. It’s there and ready for you to download! You should do it.

But in addition, the company also put out a new Nintendo Direct today offering up details about some of Nintendo’s upcoming gmaes. You can watch the thing above, since you probably missed it when it was shown live this morning (I know I did!).

For those who’ve never played Earthbound, it’s fondly remembered as one of the best RPGs from the mid-to-late ‘90s. You’ve definitely seen one of the main characters, as Nes has been a mainstay of Super Smash Bros. for a while now. If you’re wondering whether or not you should take a chance on this one, wonder no more: buy the game. You’ll be happy you did.

The video above also offers up a glimpse at a level from Pikmin 3, not to mention a pretty great look at Wonderful 101. This game looks totally insane, and I kind of can’t wait to get it when it launches on September 15. It’ll give me something fun to play when I’m taking a break from Grand Theft Auto V.
