Ubongo was delisted on Nintendo Wii no later than August 2014, according to a board post on GameFAQs. The game was likely removed from the DSi Shop Channel at around the same time.
Ubongo was most likely delisted due to expired licensing of the Ubongo board game to Korner Entertainment. A newer, officially licensed version of Ubongo published by USM was released on Nintendo Switch and iOS on April 8, 2020.
