Evidently the WiiWare version was cancelled not only because they finally realized that the Wii was on it's last legs, but also because they wanted to shift towards one 1080p version of the game. Apparently the game will still be coming to the PC and "alternate major consoles."
Whatever the case may be, with a number of other developers jumping ship from the platform, I hope somehow that Retro City Rampage's WiiWare edition doesn't get cancelled at the last minute.
