Wii U's upcoming April update is getting ready to add faster load times, Virtual Console, and more, but it's that last bit that sets the stage for something fans have been clamoring for. At this morning's Nintendo Direct event, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata finally announced that Earthbound (Mother 2) will be making its way to Virtual Console by the end of the year.  


More details on the release will be announced at a later date, but the news alone should please plenty of Mother fans.
