It seems that Nintendo are just going to freeze the VC as it is. To be fair there are not many games left that they can put up there and be financially successful. Don't blame them really.
From the link:
A customer service representative for Nintendo, perhaps not the most reliable of sources, has revealed that WiiWare has become the primary focus for Nintendo of America. It looks as if there'll still be classic games added, just just less frequently than before.
Even this so-called "fake news" doesn't say anything about killing VC. I thought it has long since been obvious that Nintendo uses VC games to pad out WiiWare releases. Looks like this practice will continue.
"The worst part about these reviews is they are [subjective]--and their scores often depend on how drunk you got the media at a Street Fighter event." — Mona Hamilton, Capcom Senior VP of Marketing
