Mother 2 coming to Virtual Console
Or at least in Japan.
As reported on Earthbound Central, Mother 2, known as Earthbound over here in North America, is being finally released on the Wii U Virtual Console on March 20. This was revealed at the Nintendo Direct conference in Japan.
Not only is the game being released, but on March 20, the creator of Mother, Shigesato Itoi will be joining the Mother 2 Wiiverse to talk about his work on the series.
It is speculated that this might be the "Mother Revival" that Mr. Itoi talked about back in December.
As for the people of NA, EU, and AUS? Well, no confirmed information as of yet. Hopefully this will be the first sign of an international release of the game for modern gamers.
