How to enjoy Earthbound when it come to the virtual console

Go!GamingGiant.com "Last week, Earthbound fans were given the shock of a lifetime when Nintendo finally announced that Earthbound was coming to the WiiU virtual console at an undisclosed time in the future. For normal gamers, this is a flash of nostalgia, but to fans of the series: this is a dream come true. After years and several unsuccessful attempts at getting Mother, Earthbound and Mother 3 to American consumers: we finally get Earthbound in all of its glory." (Culture, Earthbound, Wii U)

Modders had inserted the earthbound rom into a virtual console game ages ago.

Great news, though. Glad to see such a worthy game appear on VC Store.

"Modders had inserted the earthbound rom into a virtual console game ages ago."

And?

It wasn't legit and people wanted to support the game since it's one of the greatest classics of RPGs around, that's why fan demand was so high.

People have been emulating it for ages but I'm sure a lot of passionate fans would not mind buying it.

How to enjoy? You just play it. The writing, pacing, and battle system STILL hold up against even modern JRPG's! Such an incredible game. :) I can't wait to download it!
