Real Reason EarthBound Isn’t On The Virtual Console?
Fans have been wanting EarthBound to appear on the Virtual Console, but Nintendo just doesn’t want to acknowledge the fact that it even exists. Hirokazu Tanaka, the man that created the soundtrack for the game says that the reason why the game hasn’t arrived on the Virtual Console could be because, of the game’s sampling.
“The sampling issue is a little sensitive, because… well, I don’t know for sure, but it sounds like that is one of the reasons EarthBound is not able to come out in America. It’s a topic we should probably avoid.”
