I think there was enough of an advanced notice. They stopped production of the Wii U, discontinued physical copies a year ago and announced a different version for a new console almost two months ago. There’s no reason it needs to be up for sale for the Wii U at this point.

If that's the case then PSN and should start closing up shops with their PS3 games. 

Regardless of consoles and physical games stopped production but it cost almost nothing to keep a game on sale online.  In fact it probably cost Nintendo absolutely nothing leaving their own game up on their own store lol.

Personally I couldn't care less about this game, if I wanted this game I would've picked it up awhile ago. I just think it would've been courteous of Nintendo to at least give a proper notice that's all.

I don’t disagree that it would have been the courteous thing to do. My argument was that the outrage over a four year old title being removed from a dead console’s eShop is exaggerated. We knew it was coming at some point and there is almost no user base on the Wii U at this point. The people that wanted DKCTF on Wii U already have it and Nintendo shouldn’t have to undercut a port just because some people may or may not want to download it on the Wii U in the future. I would feel the same if any company did that - videogames hold no intrinsic value so the publisher has a duty to maintain a strong price point.

I didn’t mean to make that first post seem pointed towards you and for that I apologize.
