For years, fans of the SNES era RPG EarthBound have been sending Nintendo letters, emails, and dead horse heads in an attempt to get the Big N to re-release the game on modern-day consoles. Nintendo had adamantly refused to touch the game until earlier this week when they announced both that it was finally coming to North America, and that fans could finally shut up about it. While many denizens of Onett are delighted by this news, others have some serious questions about this re-release, most predominately “Why didn’t Nintendo do this years ago?”, and “What did they change, and thusly break, this time?”. We at Unlicensed News know, dear reader, that these are the hard hitting question that you need the answers for, or risk being the sorely under-informed in front of your game-loving friends. We have our connections and know the secrets behind Nintendo’s reluctance. Check after the break and gain intellectual superiority over your peers, at least as far as EarthBound is concerned.
