Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles bows out of the Virtual Console

News Arcade Wii Konami

What is it with TMNT titles disappearing from downloadable services? After seeing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time Re-Shelled taken off the Xbox Live Marketplace just last summer, we now have the sad news to report that the original TMNT for the NES (Yes, the Konami one) has been taken of the Wii’s virtual console for unknown reasons.

Those who already made a download of the classic can still re-download, but as of today, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is unavailable in all regions. My guess that this is just a licensing issue and might be corrected in the future, but it still is a bit disheartening that Wii owners were given no warning of these reptile’s departure.
