Thursday, 18th July 2013 16:13 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Nintendo has announced that Earthbound (aka Mother 2) will be available through Wii U Virtual Console for $10 today, around 5pm. The game was originally released in 1995 for SNES and is the first digital release of the game in North America. Nintendo announced its availability through a short Nintendo Direct it failed to advertise this morning – which can be watched below.

    @1 As opposed to buying a used copy on ebay for $150+?

    $10 is just fine for me.

    @2: As opposed to playing it on an emulator, Yeowch! :)

    I do have the SNES cart, from back in its day. (It wasn’t worth $150 then.) It’s safely stored away in a box.
