So I went to download DKC 2 & 3 and found that the trilogy has already been removed from NA!! What's going on? We didn't even get any notice.

No warning?!?!?!?! NoA really?!? This is evidence of how bad NoA has dropped the ball in recent years compared to NoE because unlike in europe NoA removed ALL 3 GAMES WITHOUT WARNING.

HA! You think NOA is bad? I think they are second best to NOJ personally... Why? We have the best relations with indie games and lots of cool 3DSWare on 3DS, and some VC on wii Europe doesn't have. If you want a bad Nintendo go see NOK

Regardless, I don't care that they are removed from NA anyway, they look hideous on the SNES and better on the GBC and GBA. Hopefully they'll release those games instead.

cough ninja gaiden cough :D

Are you nitpicking? Don't. NG is only NOA's fault in terms of it's release date, and that's on 3DS. Tecmo is the one who owns the game so they could have started the delay for whatever reason. With these it's Nintendo as they own the games. Besides, it's not like the eshop is completely dead, we have other games coming like crashmo. I was just a little bummed as nothing else came instead of NG.

I hope this is not so that they can re-release them as WiiU Virtual Console titles. That, to me, would imply that we won't be able to upgrade our existing VC library and we'd have to rebuy everything again. I don't think Nintendo understands that digital titles aren't physical media. We understand when we can't play our N64 cartridges on a Gamecube. The reason we bought the games digitally (and at premium rates compared to compilations) was so that we wouldn't have to rebuy them every generation.

I am way too lazy to think of something clever.

It's been removed before. Actually more than once. Every time people over react, like they forgot it happened.

Kachou on!

Well, it's a good thing I own the original carts for the first and third games and downloaded the second game on VC years ago, so I'm all set; I do feel bad for those that haven't got a chance to play them, though

This seriously is so lame. When I heard about Europe getting them removed next week, I considered buying at least the original before next week since I assumed North America would do the same. Little did I know Nintendo would remove them from the North American eShop, without notice, before the specified European date. Seriously, why?

So they could possibly come back?

they WILL come back for sure.
my guess is that Nintendi will release them as upgraded HD versions for Wii U's virtual console.
why? well, the original DKC trilogy looks like utter sh*t on flat screens thanks to the prerendered graphics

I've heard some rumors that many other first party Virtual Console titles will be removed in the next month, hopefully this isn't the case. :(

I emailed Nintendo and got a pretty generic canned response. Here it is for those curious:

Thanks for contacting us about this. I can certainly understand your interest in playing the Donkey Kong Country series. While I don't have any information regarding why these games were removed, I appreciate your interest in them. I'll be happy to forward your comments to the appropriate people so that your feedback will be heard. While I can’t guarantee these games will be added again, we take all feedback into consideration.

For more details about the Virtual Console, including an updated list of available software titles, check out the following web page:
http://www.nintendo.com/wii/virtualconsole

New Virtual Console titles should continue to be released. Keep checking our website (www.nintendo.com) for updates!

@Token_Girl: Yeah I emailed them too and got a similar response. I didn't get a link to the VC though. Guess the person that emailed me figured that I checked it pretty regularly.

Kinda sucks they took them off without warning. I have been debating for awhile now on getting at least the first one on VC but I guess by them removing it that solved that problem. Guess I will just look for the original cartridge.

Donkey Kong Country, the most overrated platfomer of all time.

I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.
