Earthbound now available on Wii U eShop

Practice your batting stance and shine up your Franklin badge, because Earthbound is now available on Wii U Virtual Console. Nintendo announced in a Nintendo Direct Mini today that the 1995 SNES RPG is finally back up for grabs worldwide.

This is Earthbound's first re-release ever in the U.S., and its first official appearance in Europe. Even the original packaged-in strategy guide has been Wii U optimized and is available for free on Nintendo's site.

It costs $10, which is a whole lot less than people are selling it for on eBay.
