NINTENDO of Europe Announcement on Donkey Kong Country Trilogy on Wii Virtual Console: To be Removed


Nintendo Europe has confirmed that the three Donkey Kong Country games available on the Wii Virtual Console are going to be removed from the service on November 25th. There’s currently no explanation as to why Nintendo has decided to remove these retro classics. So, if you’re desperate for your Donkey Kong fix and have yet to download them, then these are the games you need to get.

  • Donkey Kong Country
  • Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest
  • Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong’s Quest
If these games are on your 'to buy' list, then we recommend you purchase them as soon as you can. It is puzzling, however, that Nintendo would pull the Donkey Kong Country trilogy from the Wii Shop Channel. Could there be internal conflicts between Nintendo and developers Rare? It might be absolutely nothing, but strange all the same.

EDIT: Apparently it is also removed from the NA shop as well....more than likely the Asian version is gone as well.
