The rumour was also backed up by Liam Robertson who said that he had heard the same thing. Now, online gaming publication Eurogamer is also backing up this claim by stating that “Separately, Eurogamer has heard the same thing. I was told the release is finally happening – via Wii U Virtual Console – to celebrate Mother 3’s 10th anniversary of release in Japan.” Looks like it is pretty much happening folks!
