Question about the virtual console...

#1Caissie07Posted 1/21/2013 8:23:36 PM
I was looking to purchase the Donkey Kong Country series (SNES) under the Wii virtual console, but they don't appear to be available anymore. Is there any specific reason for their removal? Will they be back?

They never gave a reason for its removal. But I remember the DKC games always being in the most popular list in the VC, so I assume they will be back at some point. That or a DKC HD collection is on the way...

Never thought of that. A Donkey Kong Country collection for the Wii U would be bad ass. Or, perhaps they have plans for when the Wii U virtual console some higher end fashion.

There was about a week or so worth of warning before they were removed from the EU VC (on 11/25), but no explanation was given. They disappeared from the NA VC around the time of the Wii U launch. Those who already have the games can transfer and redownload them as they like, though.

Apparently it has something to do with the contract with Rare; the contract specifically said the games could be released on the Wii, and only the Wii, so the Wii U would require an updated contract.
