No EB on VC

Earthbound will NOT be released on the virtual console because of legal issues.

Apparently, the peeps that made the game did WAY too much sampling and pop culture referencing in the game so Nintendo (NoA) will not be able to release the game on the virtual console (VC) of the Wii because lawyers want the game changed to protect them from lawsuits but the original creators of the game do not want it changed at all. While I applaud them for their efforts, I still hate that we won't be getting Earthbound on the Wii. I know Wade was looking really forward to that.
