Donkey Kong Country Trilogy Being Removed From European Virtual Console

Well how’s this for odd? It appears that as of November 25th, Nintendo will be removing the entire Donkey Kong Country trilogy from the European virtual console! This news comes via a message Nintendaan received while using the service. So what exactly is the problem here? Royalty issues, perhaps? An upcoming re-release? It just seems odd that this would happen just prior to the release of the Wii U, so hopefully Nintendo will come through with an explanation for their removal soon. We’ll keep you posted.
