    1. That is a quesiton that makes a whole lot of baseless assumptions.

      What makes you think they were “saved” for a duo release, just because they were ultimately released as a duo?

      1. Because they literally hyped it up as something being “bound” for Switch? And the fact the NES collection has been treated as being done for a while now? Are you being serious right now?

        1. Dude it is literally just a pun. And you being bothered by the games releasing at the same time is the oddest shit. Why does it matter? Maybe they released it together because, idk, its the same franchise?? What other reason do they need?

      2. It’s not really assumptions tho. This is Earthbound, it should’ve been the very first picks for the SNES games along with the obvious Starfox, Super Metroid, Donkey Kong Country, Mario Kart, etc. What was the point in waiting nearly 2 years, to save it for a duo release? It’s a legitemate question.
