GameCube Zelda:TP won't be at retail in US either

We are gathered here today to mourn the loss of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess for the Nintendo Gamecube, we hardly knew ye.

Joystiq has confirmed with numerous Gamestop and EB Games retailers that the Gamecube version of the newest Zelda offering has been removed from their computer system. Their websites have also been updated to reflect the change. We have yet to receive any official word from Nintendo, but all signs point to this as a done deal.

Get out the pine box and some nails, prepare to bury your Gamecube. It's over. The Gamecube is dead, long live the Wii.

Unless -- Nintendo announces they'll offer Zelda:TP from their online outlet like they will in Japan.

The story is too old to be commented.

...but I still feel for fans that couldn't afford, or weren't planning on buying a Wii anytime soon. Bad Nintendo, bad.

This is quite a shock, although it certainly makes a great deal of sense from Nintendo's perspective.

I wanted to play Zelda with a real controller, not the wiimote! This sucks!

I wasn't planning on getting the Wii right away cause all I wanted to play was zelda for now. My cube has been collecting dust for 3 years, I'm def gonna sell it or somethinig. Last game I had for it was soul caliber 2.

Mixed feelings. Really now though Zelda with the Wii Remote is going to be kick arse! Don't know what you two are talking about, because Zelda with true control how is it a bad thing? On the other side Gamecube not only did get windwalker but they also had those collecter discs with all the other Zeldas on it. Seemed they wanted the GC a Zelda console but they just changed it to be the Wii.
However, I can dig it, Wii is awesome! I can say this for the DS was crazy talk and now it's proven to be the best.
