In a strange move that no one understands, everyone's favorite Mario factory has recently removed original Wii U pack-in Nintendo Land from the system's eShop. Exactly when, we're not sure. NeoGAF users found the title gone from the digital store, and according to some it's been gone for awhile now.
Of course, this only applies to the North American store for whatever reason and, as reported by Nintendo Life, UK Wii U owners are still able to purchase the game digitally at full price (the price cut never made it overseas).
Some people are suspecting this is a push to sell remaining copies sitting on shelves (as new pack-ins are making its way into future shipments of the console), and their next thought being -- I assume -- Nintendo Land will one day make a mysterious return to the digital storefront silently in the night when we least expect it.
