Yeah, so... Nintendo officially announced today that Mother 2 (AKA Earthbound) will likely NEVER be released on Wii's Virtual Console. The reason why is because claims have been made that certain songs in the game bear resemblance to certain liscensed songs (ex. The naming screen featuring a sound clip from the theme of "Monty Python's Flying Circus"). When bringing up the suggestion of altering the music, Nintendo Of Japan stated that they would have no such thing. So... yeah.
