Nintendo announced that Earthbound Beginnings is now available on the Wii U eShops for $6.99 (USD). What is it? It's the long, lost Earthbound title that never made its way to the States.

It was cancelled in 1991. It was then leaked online. For nearly 25 years, that was the only way anybody could play the game. Today, Nintendo rectified everything and released this game for you to enjoy.

Many now speculate that Nintendo did this as a prelude to some even bigger announcement coming soon.
