A notice was posted to the Japanese 3DS eShop and pointed out to the site no later than April 12th, 2022 that both Sentouchu: Densetsu no Shinobi to Survival Battle! and Chou Sentou-chuu Kyuukyoku no Shinobu to Battle Player Choujou Kessen! would be removed from sale on April 18th at 10:00 JST. Both titles are based on the ‘Battle for Money’ television game show which was a spin-off of the original program ‘Run for Money (逃走中)’.
Although Chou Sentou-chuu is featured in the 2018 Nintendo Switch remaster Chou Tousouchuu & Chou Sentouchuu Double Pack, it would seem that some licensing behind the original 3DS versions has expired resulting in their delistings. As of this writing the two 3DS eShop releases based on ‘Run for Money’ remain available to download (Tousouchuu: Shijou Saikyou no Hunter-Tachi Kara Nigekire! and Chou Tousouchuu Atsumare! Saikyou no Tousousha-tachi) along with the Switch’s double pack remaster.
