The least they could have done was give us a headsup that these were to be taken off soon"

I agree. And I also wonder if this happens at Sony/Microsoft. After all I might pick up a PsVita in the future. Not only for PsVita games, but also to catch up with the downloadable Ps-one and Psp games!

And yes, this issue is worth a Nintendolife article! Because most people aren't aware that games on download-services doesn't stay forever (Well, not on Nintendo services apparently. I don't know how the situation is at Sony/Microsoft). It also proofs once again that cloud-storage is bad. If you buy a digital game, you should always download it to your device. That way they can't take it away from you!

Maybe the name of the topic should be changed yet again. This time it should be: Games that got removed from Nintendo download services. And maybe it's better suited for the "General discussion" section. Just a idea!

I think it would be fair if Nintendo announces titles that will be taken off the shops, and give us a small timeframe (1~2 weeks maybe) so that everyone who was on the fence gets a chance to download them before they're gone. I suggested that idea to Nintendo and I hope others do too.

All the removed games are still being advertised on the official Nintendo site. I bought a points card just for one of these removed games (before I knew it was removed), and it would only be fair from Nintendo to let me download the game I want, or take my unused points card and give me my money back.

I'm still waiting for a reply from Nintendo.

Oh come on, it's not like they've been removing games on a weekly basis.

I'm glad I was able to get Bruiser and Scrach. One of the most underrated puzzle games I've played. They do have an "improved" version for the PC though so it's not gone forever.

I'm curious about the VC though. I know that Factor 5 went under, yet their games are still available for download. I wonder if Nintendo has a clause that says they will retain rights to the VC games if the original publisher goes under. I suppose when the VC changes over to the Wii U the Factor 5 games will dissapear.

The ironic part is: Of all Nintendo's download-services Wiiware may be one of the weakest (3DSware has yet to properly start). Removing games doesn't help at all. It's as if Nintendo has already given up on Wiiware.

I tried checking, but for some reason my Wii refuses to see my wireless network around 90% of the time, so I can't go on the shop channel and see. What's really baffling is that on the few occasions it can actually see the network the signal strength is at or near maximum, but then when I try refreshing the signal suddenly disappears. Maybe someone else can check.

Mine is doing the same thing,but luckily instead of no signal 90% of the time I have an awful connection 90% of the time it's only had this problem for about a week :(
Does anyone have a full list of the wiiware games that have been removed?

I have no idea honestly,but it isn't good when games like The Magic Obilisk,and Jungle Speed which both got a 7/10 here at Nintendo Life get removed :(
Come now Nintendo remove games such as Fireplacing if you must remove games :|

I spoke to Playful Entertainment and was told Jungle Speed was removed from the shop because it didn't meet the minimum sales threshold. It is going to be put out as a box product later this year.

I'm not a big fan of the minimum sales threshold and this just makes me feel more strongly about my feelings on the matter :|

Some people are asking if this happens on other services. TMNT:Turtles in Time was removed from PSN; however they did give folks a heads up to download it. Also all of Midway's games (Rampage, C. Sprint, Rampart, Gauntlet, MK II) were removed from the PSN. It looks like no service is immune to this.

It's a problem on the 360 too. A particular annoyance with me was the removal of Doom prior to me getting a 360, as tahat was a game I really wanted.
