It was actually removed from NA on the same day Sim City was removed, but only Sim City's removal was mentioned in the Nintendo Life news. R-Type III originally stayed on the NA Wii VC after the removal of Irem's other VC games despite it being removed in Europe and Japan.

Rest in Peace ShiftyLook
I keep these Nintendo Life threads updated: Missing 3DS VC and Wii U VC between regions, Full of list first party Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Gear games missing from the 3DS VC, and Full of list first party Game Boy Advance games missing from the Wii U VC.

I'm surprised it managed to stay on there after all the other R-Types were removed. I'm just glad I downloaded all of the R-Types(excluding the master system game) before they bit the dust.

I thought R-Type III was removed a long time ago even in NA?

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

Someone should check to see if Spelunker is still available, since it was developed by Irem. The Master System R-Type is the only one I didn't download. I know it's inferior to the TG16 version, but I would have downloaded it for the bonus level.
