Nintendo has updated the Wii Shop Channel with a new message stating that Yoshi's Cookie will be no longer available for sale as of 11th October.

The surprise announcement doesn't provide any details as to why the NES game is being removed. It was originally developed by Bullet-Proof Software, with Nintendo acting as publisher. Is it possible that some sort of agreement between the two parties has now expired?

If you haven't yet purchased Yoshi's Cookie and are wondering if you should get it before it disappears, then be sure to check out our review of the game.
