Donkey Kong Country: A Series of Unfortunate Events

Shortly after the Donkey Kong Country series was pulled from the Wii's Virtual Console service this month, my Gameboy version of DKC II finally failed: the cartridge no longer holds a save, randomly erasing the file if the system is powered down for any length of time.

This leaves me without any means of quenching my hunger for banana-hording monkeys.
My soul is peeled, my heart is rotten.

If you feel the same way, please drop a line to Nintendo at this link, and ask for a re-release of the DKC series for GB/gba on 3ds virtual console, or for the SNES version on the Wii:

It's RARE revenge. They are hungry.

Wait, DKC was taken off the Virtual Console? When, and why?

Then why not just get an FC Twin system (a system that plays both NES and SNES games, if I recall correctly) and a used copy of Donkey Kong Country I, II, or III and be done with it?

Batteries might be going out on some, sadly. 'Tis a little strange that they'd disappear, though... they need to release a collection already.

Ah, I think we've found the reason they've pulled them.

They can put all 3 on a disc and sell it for $40 like they did thei the Super Mario games.

I suppose you're right. At the same time, though, if it's a quick fix he wants, he does have that option to consider.
