More DSiWare to be removed

Unfortunately five of Nippon Columbia’s character themed Chara Pasha (□キャラ・パシャ!) DSiWare games (well essentially photo decoration apps) are to be deleted from the eShop on 29 May assumedly for licensing reasons. The five games are Chara Pasha! Hello Kitty, Chara Pasha! My Melody, Chara Pasha! SpongeBob, Chara Pasha! Cinnamoroll and Chara Pasha! Kaiten Muten Maru. Each game is ¥500. For some bizarre reason Chara Pasha! Thomas the Tank Engine isn’t scheduled to be deleted!

Edit: looks like Thomas has already been removed;-(
