EarthBound for Wii U is Inbound With This Launch Trailer
EarthBound is possibly one of the most notable titles ever to hit the Super Nintendo Entertainement System (SNES). At a young age, I can still remember seeing that oversized box at my local Blockbuster (Sorry, GameFly and Redbox weren’t even around at the time), curious about what lie in await for such a game.
EarthBound is reminiscent of your typical retro RPG. The game encompasses world exploration and a level of difficulty that pays homage to the genre. Follow Ness, Poo (har, har and har), Paula and Jeff on a journey to save the world.
The game itself brings together story lines previously secluded to Japanese release. Now, the two have landed together on the Nintendo eShop for all regions to purchase.
EarthBound hits the Wii U eShop with this week’s downloadable update. The title is available today for $9.99.
