One step close to it coming here though.

Yeah I guess. Earthbound is my favorite game of all time, I'd love to see it come here along with Mother 1/3 especially since I haven't played Mother 1. I would buy a Wii U/3ds for that.

How do you figure? It was released on the Japanese wii virtual console and never in NA/EU. They'd have to make numerous edits to the game for it to be rereleased outside of Japan which will most likely never happen. I'd love for it to get a rerelease on virtual console but it's extremely doubtful.

I don't understand this article. We are living in America, and most people speak English, however, this article only talks about Japan and how they get great titles like Earth Bound, or more formally known as Mother. What's the point of reporting something like this?

Probably missed the point that this is out in March which is when we'll likely see the first Wii U update to help the OS, so this makes it relevant to all of us with a Wii U.
