What made you already aware that copyright issues were not a problem? Was it just a gut feeling? I just ask because serious MOTHER fans have been accepting copyright as the problem for years now, so if they didn't know, who could?

thats a good question...im a serious mother/earthbound fan myself (do people not know by now?) but im not one of those guys thats going to skip lunch over it.
to me it makes sense what nintendo was/is doing all along.
sometimes issues get resolved, no matter how difficult they may seem
if folks scream loud enough, people react. its really simple homie.

So basically you had faith all along. Makes sense. If you just have a passing belief that it will happen eventually, and don't think about it all the time, it is BOUND to happen eventually. How could it not with all the pressure fans were placing on Nintendo all the time.

Coming from a country outside NA, I have to say that without having access to or ever owning a Super Nintendo, but having played it through other means, that Earthbound is a brilliant game, this is me saying without nostalgia/rose-tinted glasses on.
Seriously, what is it with people saying Earthbound or the MOTHER series in general saying it's overrated?? Like the promotional ads say, "No crying until the end", this was the marketing campaign Shigesato Itoi used to help market the game in japan and I pick it out because it sums up the game perfectly in every way.
By the end of my first playthrough and after listening to the brilliant MOTHER OSTs, I shed man-tears, real tears, since then i've never recaptured that feeling in it's entirety, but it still stirs up my emotions whenever I do go to play it and this is coming from a person who isn't touting the nostalgia/ rose-tinted glasses of the 16-bit days.
I even loved Mother 1 in the same way, but not to the same extent, the MOTHER series in general is something great to behold and I can not wait to legitimently own this game on my Wii U, I have waited at least 4-5 years since I first discovered Earthbound and I guess even longer because I first met Ness from Earthbound when having played Super Smash Bros 64 in my youth.
To all those naysayers, you obviously never played the entire game, nor bet the final boss or experienced the aftermath in the wake of beating Giygas, Earthbound is an awesome game and everyone should give it a go when it's re-released, even if you aren't a huge JRPG fan or only know Ness and the other EB characters from SSB.

It's not going to be a 30 cent game because those have already all been revealed. It's also not going to be there when the VC releases because that's happening within the month.

thats unfortunate :(

why would it take so long to port the game as downloadable? especially since the english version has been released before and they already said they arent changing anything

Probably has more to do with sceduling than anything else. Plus, after the Wii VC, I'm convinced they have one, maybe two people working on VC games...

Seriously, how can anyone hate this game? It's a fantastic game, but nothing's wrong with acknowledging it's overrated. Metroid Prime is overrated. Megaman is overrated. Zelda is overrated. I still love these series, a giant pedestal other people put them on ain't gonna stop me from seeing what it truly is, and loving that truth.

The word overrated is overrated.
Its a good game.and that's all that matters at the end of the day.

It's not the gameplay that makes this so special, its the overall atmosphere and the experience.

The story, the characters, the dialogue, the music~ It all comes together so perfectly~

It's good to see that someone gets it.
The game has elements that are left field of your typical rpg, but they mesh very well within the game.

Four more months until Bayonetta 2.

agreed. Nowadays it tends to mean "this is popular and I don't like it because" except they forget you have to put reasons and...words after because.

also playing most JRPGs for the gameplay is laughable. No one does that, barring certain exceptions.

So you drew your own conclusion out of my statement then tried to use it to insult me? Haha, nice try though. I was just making a general statement as he did - try not to take everything personally. Might also want to look up what a troll is.

2 dumb questions:
1. Some sites list this title as part of the Wii U VC lineup. Does that mean there's a chance it may be available this Tuesday (4/23)?
2. This game will only be available on Wii U VC and not on the original Wii VC?
