So, looks like Nintendo is putting earthbound out on the WiiU Virtual Console today. To all five WiiU users: who is getting it? I'll definitely buy it day one once I get the system. Anyone here own a SNES cart?
Are you getting EarthBound?
linking to the soundtrack doesn't prove your point, you know! I KNOW YOUR GAME.
Did they change the music?
This was my question. I own a cart, though the Wii U would be more convenient than my SNES. Still, any music changes would be unforgivable.
Thankfully, the most important piece of music has been in every Animal Crossing game, so I'm sure they didn't change that, but I'm hoping most of the rest wasn't changed.
Played it originally on SNES. I'm kind of disappointed that it is being released in this format. It's great on the one hand that people will be able to play without emulating or paying out the ass for a hard copy, but Earthbound is going to lose a lot of that mystique. It's a very old, weird, and cultish game. It has a great underground rep, but is not going to appeal at all to most of the people that play it.
I guess it's about time more people got the chance to play Earthbound. As it's one of my favorite games of all time, I already own a copy or whatever but I'd still buy it if I could, maybe if they saw how much people were anticipating this they would make an effort to release the other games in the series as well. Probably not but still, it's nice too dream.
Anyway to anybody that's on the fence, I can't say enough good things about it. I guess if you're not a fan of more traditionally formatted JRPG's, you might not enjoy the game on a mechanical level but even so, this game will probably hook you just based on its very unique atmosphere and pretty much unbridled whimsy. I mean, yeah there're some darker moments in there but I'd say it's a good opportunity to go and look at life through the eyes of your 11 year old self once again. I play this on a very regular basis and still really enjoy playing it. I'm not sure if it's just nostalgia but I doubt it, I still haven't played anything like it.
