Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo removes Nintendoland from the US WiiU eShop

nintendoland-lost

Nintendo are acting suspicious, and have removed the digital download version of Nintendoland from the US eShop. The game is still available on the Euro arm of the eShop – so whatever the problem, it is not a worldwide one.

When you look to download the game in the US, users are told that the game is “Wii U Retail Only,” with another section of the product page detailing the game is “Unavailable in Nintendo eShop on Wii U.” Euro users are told the game is available as a “Wii U (Disc/Download).”

Nintendoland was a launch game for Wii U, and was available as a download – if you could get past that HUGE patch – from day one, November 18, 2012. It is not known when exactly the availability to download was revoked, but reports on Nintendo’s own forum have users questioning its removal from November 2nd onwards – meaning that (at the time of writing) they have made Nintendoland a retail exclusive in the US for well over a week. 

 

Nintendo have yet to give a reason for the removal of the game as a download, and why the issue only affects US regions. Maybe it is all just a huge mistake?

So strange. Especially as more and more things are going digital.

Kinect passes the original Xbox in sales!

Xbox 360 passes Wii in the North America! Number One console 7th gen in the UK and North America! 

Most anticipate new game in years launches 3-11-2014


I think they will split it up and relaunch it as a Wii Sports Club-type game, where you can buy the individual/stages/levels/activities seperately.

They probably ran out of digital copies... it'll be back once they re-stock.

I would actually prefer that. I'd pay $6 or whatever for the Metroid game.



Even a bluff would suit me just fine...

The Wii Sports Club route seems a good theory... OR, it`s going to be made into a F2P!

It is honestly well worth the 30$ price, it is severly underrated.

And Metroid Blast was more fun than a lot of the 50mill+ AAA games I played

Agreed. Great local multiplayer, huge replay value. Definitely worth the price of admission.

But everyone told me Nintendo is not as advanced as Steam. Now I don't know what to believe anymore :'(
