Donkey Kong Country trilogy set for Virtual Console removal

The Donkey Kong Country trilogy will be removed from the Virtual Console service next week, Nintendo have confirmed.

Such news was announced through a notification delivered on the Wii Shop Channel, stating that they will be unavailable to purchase from the service on November 25th.

This includes Donkey Kong Country, Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest, and Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong’s Double Trouble, and will affect both Europe and North America.

Nintendo have provided no indication as to why this is happening, nor whether they will be re-added to the Virtual Console at any point in the future.
