Earthbound Is HERE And Has Released On Wii U In US And Europe

Earthbound is available today on the American and European Wii U eShop. It’s priced at $9.99 in the US, £6.99 in the UK and €9.99 in the rest of Europe. 

Earthbound tells the story of a young boy called Ness, who has psychic powers. After a meteorite lands near his home Onett, Ness encounters an alien called Buzz Buzz who asks him to use his powers to defeat Giygas, an alien from a distant galaxy who has the power to influence people using their own evil nature.


When Nintendo decided to release Earthbound on the Japanese Virtual Console, many European and US gamers fled to its Miiverse forum to ask for a release in their respective countries. This game was only released in Japan and the North America but has never seen a release for European gamers. 

The game originally came packed with a full-length strategy guide when it was originally released on the SNES in America, and this guide will be available both online and via the Wii U GamePad. Earthbound was originally released for the SNES on August 27 1994 (Japan) and June 5, 1995 (North America).
