I just need money! I've never actually gotten to play this. And I only have $4 on my Wii U! ;-;

You're not the only one. ;~; I have no idea when I'll be getting a Wii U, unfortunately. But it's definitely a priority now that EB's out.

I was planning to get a Wii U since I heard this game was coming out. I got one a few months ago and... I'M BUYING IT RIGHT NOW

I don't have a WiiU yet, but I'm glad this game is finally being re-released for newer fans to enjoy. Even though I still have my original cart, I'll buy this at some point just to show support, since it was my favorite game for the longest time. It's pretty cool that they've got the old school player's guide up on the official site, too. Too bad they can't replicate the scratch and sniff stickers at the end of the real guide. :P

Was there ever any word on whether they had to change anything for copyright reasons?

:Va so my friend told me the anti-piracy version i played through had increased encounter rates ans harder difficulty ... and i almost beat giygas before it started crashing, i wonder if the normal version will be too easy @>@

Did they ever explain how they were able to get through all the legal difficulties with rereleasing it?

If they did, I haven't found it yet. I'd personally like to know how they got through them too.

Pardon for being a noob, but am I missing something along those lines? Sounds interesting.

The whole reason why there was such a kerfuffle about never allowing earthbound to be released on the Wii was because of some of the copyright infringements that the melodies have (mostly The Beatles more than anything else) There were already changes made to the original SNES version such as the Runaway 5 being changed to Mario & Luigi costumes due to similar reasons but there were other stuff that was let pass then from not now.

Also probably why they never released Mother 3 over here (also because no-one would buy it).

I've been wanting to play this game ever since Fangamer's EB fanfest. Now that day has finally come.

Use those 800 points you'd save to by The Last Blade.

Good Stuff.

I don't think it really takes much to be a recent best seller on Wii U :lol:

Are there any exact sales figures for this? It'd be interesting to compare these with how the game sold originally.

I'll definitely picking this up when I get my Wii U back from being repaired by Nintendo. I enjoyed it when I played it. And maybe the good sales will see American releases of other games in the series. (wishful thinking)

I hope it's selling well. I'm thinking they released it in order to help get the WiiU going. I'd buy one if I had the funds, but I wish they'd release it on 3DS as well.

Yeah, it really kinda sucks that they still haven't put any SNES games on the 3DS VC. =/

I definitely cannot wait to play this game. I've been waiting years for EarthBound to be rereleased here in America, and I was worried that they never would release it again. I've been holding off on playing through on an emulator in the hope that I could play legitimately on an actual console, and it looks like my hopes and dreams have come true. I'm so glad that they have. Now as soon as I can get a Wii U and a eShop card, I can purchase EarthBound and start my very first playthrough of it.

I actually have played a bit of Mother 3 on an emulator, but I had to stop because my laptop had to be reset to factory settings. So I lost my save file and the other files I had to be able to play it. I just haven't gotten around to redownloading it, but I think I'll hold off for now. Who knows? Maybe they'll release Mother 3 over here in the future. I hope so, because I really like it a lot too. I think I like it more than EarthBound, but I'll wait to actually play both before stating my final opinion on the two games.

This will likely be the first game I pick up on my Wii U Virtual Console. Haven't played the games in years, and I am not about to pay what a SNES copy costs these days.

Same, except that it will be my first time playing the game. I cannot wait to play it.
