I can't figure out why they'd remove those games unless they were planning to do something with them. I mean, Nintendo retains ownership of all things Donkey Kong - it's not like Rare can do anything with them!

1. They can't lose a license for games they own. Rare and Microsoft have no say in what happens to Donkey Kong Country, because Nintendo owns the characters and plot. Rare just developed it. As part of the deal for letting Microsoft buy Rare, Nintendo got to keep Donkey Kong Country.

2. Licenses can always be reinstated.

The trilogy removal only points to two possibilities.

A. They need to remove the Rare logo from the games.

B. They are remaking them in HD for Wii U or 3D for 3DS.
(This way the old versions don't interfere with a new sku's potential sales)

having donkey kong country returns on 3ds is awesome.
