Nintendo Land pulled from NA Wii U eShop – report

Sunday, 10th November 2013 22:31 GMT By Brenna Hillier

North American Wii U owners report mini-game collection Nintendo Land has been removed from the region’s eShop. The quiet removal follows a recent discount which was announced as applicable to both in-store and eShop purchases, making the disappearance quite surprising. Nintendo Land was a pack-in at the Wii U’s launch but has since been replaced by other titles. It presents players with a theme park filled with attractions themed around various Nintendo properties.

Thanks, NintendoLife.

    Paedophiles had learned to disguise themselves as the Nintendoland software and kids were downloading them into their homes unknowingly.

    The only choice Nintendo had was to remove the software completly to stop this happening anymore. At least one company takes our children’s safety seriously.

    Sony & MS need to get their house in order…

    What exactly does Nintendo’s system becoming a haven for child molesters have to do with Sony and Microsoft?

    Of course, pedophiles are going to pick the Wii U. It’s the most family friendly system with the most family friendly games, which puts them directly in contact with their targets.

    Not sure what that has to do with the other two. It’s not like pedophiles are going to be using Titanfall or Killzone to find kids.

    I’m kinda sure MG was being sarcastic. That is due to the removal of other recent features.

    @4 – Save me the effort of having to Google that, will you, and tell me what that it is, please.

    ‘Brasseye’ was a satirical British comedy series written by Chris Morris. It often used public fears (drugs, paedophiles etc…) and made fake ‘news’ reports or documentaries around the topics.

    They even got many celebrities involved who would try to use these reports to gain better public image, in reality it generally exposed them as being idiots and media whores.

    Here is a clip from Paedogeddon! (one of the shows), you get the gist! :)
