Nintendo Direct 4/17 - EARTHBOUND, Bravely Default, & New Zelda Announced

Couldn't have said it any better myself, Nintendo!  Even though this was mainly a 3DS centered Nintendo Direct, the news broke that Wii U owners throughout NA and EU can stop their complaining on Miiverse, because Earthbound will finally be heading to the Wii U Virtual Console this year.  The Virtual Console itself will be available next week, included with the system update.

Earthbound on the VC isn't even the biggest news from this Nintendo Direct.  We now know that Bravely Default will be flying over to NA sometime next year.  That is awesome news, but 2014 is a long wait. The two Oracle games from The Legend of Zelda will be available on the 3DS eShop on May 30.  That is some great Zelda news, however, the biggest news is the announced sequel for The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.  That news actually made me forget about this ear infection nonsense for a few minutes.

A bunch more was announced, like the new 3DS Mario Party, and the Animal Crossing 3DS XL bundle coming to NA, and EU, but you can catch the rest of the info in the video!
