Meme Run Removed From Wii U eShop

Meme Run remains a surreal work in video gaming. An endless runner based around internet memes, the game became notorious as an in-your-face title filled with airhorns, Illuminati imagery, and wumbo combos. But now it’s disappeared from the Wii U eShop.

While no official statement has been made from developers Ninja Pig Studios, it is likely due to various copyrighted imagery in the game. Meme Run’s Miiverse page has also been removed.

This also follows in the wake of Meme Run’s failure on Steam Greenlight, which happened early in February, possibly for similar reasons related to copyright.
