What's the Deal With EarthBound on Wii U Virtual Console?

1UP - Last week, Nintendo annnounced a bunch of details on upcoming Wii U software, including a solid plan for the the system's take on Virtual Console. All in all, the Virtual Console service doesn't seem as bad as we'd expected -- it's limited, yes, with support for only a handful of platforms announced (including the inexplicable decision to bring Game Boy Advance titles to Wii U rather than 3DS, where they would make some degree of sense). And owners of these titles on Wii will have to pay a dollar to $1.50 apiece to upgrade to the Wii U version... but since I expected to have to shell out full price again as they've been making us do on 3DS, a modest upgrade fee doesn't seem so bad.
