The original NES Yoshi’s Cookie will be discontinued from the Wii Virtual Console at the end of this week, according to a notice on the service spotted by GoNintendo.
“The Virtual Console title Yoshi’s Cookie (500 Wii Points) will be discontinued at 9 a.m. Friday, Oct. 18, 2013,” reads the notice. “If you’d like to purchase this title or have already purchased and would like to re-download, please do so before this time. We apologize for any inconvenience.”
Yoshi’s Cookie, which debuted on NES and Game Boy April 1993 in North America and SNES in June, was also pulled from the Japanese and European Wii Virtual Console services last week, on October 11.
Nintendo has yet to comment as to why Yoshi’s Cookie is being removed from the Wii Virtual Console worldwide.
