Zelda TP on GameCube to only be sold online (Japan)

1UP is reporting in addition to several new updates such as confirmed Big Brain Academy for Wii in 2007, “Wii Compact Software” for next spring (downloadable, non- VC mini games/sims), new DS cooking software and that Zelda: Twilight Princess for the GameCube will only be made available through Nintendo’s online store. From the article: “Nintendo has decided that the GameCube version of The Legend of Zelda: The Twilight Princess will only be sold at Nintendo’s own online store, presumably wanting to avoid confusion in stores. The game hasn’t officially been declared as the last ever GameCube title, but it certainly looks that way, with Nintendo’s newer titles all jumping ship to the Wii.”

How does that make you feel as a Nintendo enthusiast? Who cares? Bush league?

[Update: The article only reports on Japanese releases, so no word yet if this will affect N. American gamers.]
