Earthbound coming to Wii U?

Luke Halliday writes:

"The lights are on bright tonight for Nintendo’s Wii U Direct conference where they promise to announce new Wii U titles along with provide details on previously announced titles. As is usually the case with such conferences, hype is already building across the gaming community with speculation reaching boiling point. Following the hype and clues left behind by developers can be somewhat eye-opening.

One developer, Monolith Soft have been burning a quiet revolution by giving away hint after hint at a potential Wii U title and all signs point to Earthbound"

This is a win if they do this. I love the original Earthbound and for ages wish they would bring a truly amazing RPG to the console. Please be true. This would be a savior of the JRPG alongside Ni No Kuni and a reason I will get a Wii U.

Akuma- have you been reading all the other posts in here? How many people want this game or would buy a Wii U for it. Regardless if they are NES fanatics or not, that is a bunch of extra sales that will only help Nintendo.

I, for one, welcome this game with open arms. Earthbound on the SNES was such an amazing game, I had no clue what I was getting into when I first started it up. I thought it was going to be some kids game, but boy I was wrong. It was not the first time, I might add, as I laughed at Super Mario RPG before I actually gave it a go.

It'd not be a system seller except in Japan, unless that's what you meant...

No one needs to kid themselves if they know the Mother Series history with Nintendo of America, the sales were bad, are bad(In NA) and Nintendos marketing for Earthbound was horrible. Reggie and the NA team just barely care for it so there'd be no hope for us overseas unless they have it with English and we can import the game from Japan orrrr....idunno.... either way, Mother series as a whole, is one of the best RPG's ever made to date, but they just aren't the type to sell well except in Japan-standards. (Exception being Pokemon which sells over 9000 Billion copies worldwide)

Just, Mother series doesn't have a solid fanbase in NA. It has a massive cult following, but it'd not be anything over 200K in NA sales unless the game(s) were massively marketed.

Wait........ You mean God was listening ?

Even if it isn't Earthbound , After Xenoblade chronicles , it's hard to imagine what Monolith Soft could do with the wiiu hardware....

I missed being able to check out the original game, if this does turn out true, I'd definitely want to see what I've missed.

It's quite a journey, hopefully more details will surface.
