Minecraft: Story Mode – The Complete Adventure was likely delisted from the European Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Wii U and Switch in late April 2019. However, the last Google Cache archives that show the game was available were on March 28th (Wii U) and April 5th (Switch).
As of May 31st, 2019 all other console versions of the game worldwide were confirmed delisted. Also on May 31st, 2019, Minecraft.net posted a notice to players who may have purchased the Minecraft: Story Mode seasons advising them to download their content before June 25th.
“On behalf of the publisher, Minecraft: Story Mode – A Telltale Games Series, Season 1 and 2 will no longer be supported on June 25th, 2019. If you have purchased these seasons, please download all remaining episodes prior to the service being discontinued in June.”
This implies that episodes and seasons may not be re-downloadable after June 25th, even for those who had previously purchased them. This leaves the interactive Netflix adaptation of Season One as the only place to experience the series without a physical copy of the game.
While expired licensing of the Minecraft IP from Microsoft and Mojang was part of the reason behind the delisting, it is also due to Telltale Games’ closure in late 2018.
