The chances are slim. Especially considering it's giving WiiU some much needed attention at the moment.

There's... a chance? I mean, it could come to 3DS someday, but really probably not... it's a Wii U thing. Plus, the 3DS doesn't have any SNES games on VC yet, so until we start seeing those I'd say no.

Its not coming to 3DS anytime soon.... And then you said.... "I'm not gonna buy a Wii U for just one game...." >.>

I own a Wii U and 3DS. I do plan on getting a PS4 eventually.

The Wii U's library will grow much larger before SNES games hit the 3DS VC, just get a Wii U if you want to play it.

Rest in Peace ShiftyLook
I keep these Nintendo Life threads updated: Missing 3DS VC and Wii U VC between regions, Full of list first party Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Gear games missing from the 3DS VC, and Full of list first party Game Boy Advance games missing from the Wii U VC.

Slim but there was this rumor about Nintendo making it possible to be able to play eShop games on both the Wii U and 3DS but who know if it'll happen.

I've carefully and meticulously calculated the probability of EarthBound coming to 3DS, and my final result came out at roughly 0%.

I hope it happens some day..... but the way things are it's more possible for mother to released on the 3DS and mother 3 remade for WiiU(because earthbound was revived in the WiiU or some stuff like that, plus the WiiU needs to increase sales more than the 3DS right now)

goodbyes are a sad part of life but for every end there's a new beggining so one must never stop looking forward to the next dawn

This is the type of thread and responses you would see back in July when EarthBound first came out on the Wii U Virtual Console... SNES games most likely won't come until Nintendo is sure that the Wii U is a good seller. It's getting better and better, but probably won't happen until the holidays or when Super Smash Bros. comes out. Then, Nintendo should think about releasing SNES games on the 3DS because there really isn't any reason why SNES aren't there now besides the poor Wii U sales reason. I own a Wii U, but I prefer to play all of the Virtual Console games on my 3DS (with the exception of Gamecube if it would ever come to the Wii U) and I am very eager to play games such as A Link to the Past, Super Mario World, and Super Metroid which I have never played before. I wouldn't expect them for the next couple of months. Even then, they'd probably come to Japan first and we'd have to wait another year just for one game to come out in the West.

Chances are very slim. Just be happy it's on Wii U! And don't buy a Wii U just for Earthbound. There are plenty of other great games for Wii U out now and on the pipeline! Earthbound is merely one of those titles! :D

Games I'm playing currently: Legend of Zelda: A Link Betweeen Worlds, Tearaway
Games I'm excited for: Super Mario 3D World, Super Smash Bros. 4, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8

Rumors confirm nothing. There can be a rumor that Nintendo is gonna buy Apple, but that doesn't make the statement any more valid

That gives me nightmares. That would be like Batman hiring Black Mask to be one of his sidekicks because he feels like it would give him more money. I have nothing more to say than that bad example.
