European Wii Shop to pull Donkey Kong Country titles

Donkey Kong Country, Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! will be removed from the European Wii Shop Channel by Nov. 25, according to an image from one Twitter user.

Daan Koopman, who goes by the handle @NintenDaan, tweeted the image yesterday. It includes a message sent via the Wii, which states that all three titles will no longer be available for purchase. The message does not include a reason why, or if the removal is permanent. There is no indication yet whether or not other regions will be included in the pull.

Donkey Kong Country was originally developed by Rare for the Super Nintendo in 1994. Both sequels saw subsequent releases in 1995 and 1996, respectively.
