Nintendo Wii: No Donkey Kong Country Returns Sequel Planned For Nintendo Wii

Nintendo producer Kensuke Tanabe has told online gaming publication Game Informer that the company currently has no plans to release a sequel to the amazing Donkey Kong Country Returns on the Nintendo Wii.

According to Retro Studio’s president and CEO Michael Kelbaugh Donkey Kong Country Returns was a lot more work than the developer originally anticipated it would be, but they’re inevitably pleased with the end result.

  1. From the interview: “I wasn’t even thinking about doing a sequel for Metroid Prime until Retro showed me the last scene in the game, which was near the end of development. I wouldn’t say we won’t do a sequel [for Donkey Kong Country Returns], but we don’t have anything planned at this time.”

    Which totally leaves it open for a possible sequel. And if there’s one thing we know about Nintendo, it’s that their most popular titles get sequels. New Super Mario Bros. (DS) was stated as a best selling DS game this month in an e-newsletter. Because of its popularity, we’ve seen NSMBW, and we’re no doubt getting a NSMB3DS. Rest assured, there will indeed be more DKC games on Wii. The engine they’ve built is there, and the passion of the core gamers is there.

  2. That’s good. They did an excellent job with DKC Returns, and I think it would ruin everything if they made a sequel. The title “Donkey Kong Country Returns 2″ just doesn’t sound right to me. It would be a turn off, in my opinion.

  3. The DKC series wasn’t ruined when they made the 2nd and 3rd games, so I don’t think DKCR would be ruined if they made a sequel, either. It’s a great game, it’d be very nice if they made another one. But really, “it was a lot of work” isn’t a good excuse.

  4. Dear nintendofan1992,
    There’s noh way Nintendo is queer enough to “donkeykong country returns 2″; of course it sounds stupid.
    Point example-
    Super Mario kart
    Mario kart 64
    Mario kart super circuit
    Mario kart DS
    Mario kart wii

    Nintendo does titles fine; its nothing to doubt.

  5. Donkey Kong Country 4 for the 3DS please. Returns doesn’t exist in my eyes. It’s a terribly disappointing game. It’s funny how Nintendo raved about it’s difficulty as if it’s a challenge and it’s pathetically sad that so many people online think it’s a hard game. They must be young, they must be. I want a 2D game as a throwback to the original trilogy, continuing the main story arc on the 3DS. Returns is such a short game and even as a youngster I probably would have thought the storyline was a joke and it is. Also, where are all the animals? Why were they cut out? The game-play is far too simplistic. Seriously, the originals weren’t easy, this one is a piece of cake. I can pretty much breeze through it in one sitting if I wanted to. Make a proper Donkey Kong Country Nintendo.

    1. I disagree. I quite enjoyed DKC Returns. I feel that it was a great edition to the series. Even though it may not be quite as hard as the orginals but I feel that for many gamers I did supply them with a challenge, especially when compared to most modern games.

  6. I HEARD THAT YOURE MAKING THIS FOR A NEW SYSTEM (Wii2) IF DIXIE KONG IS NOT WITH DIDDY KONG IN THIS GAME, I SWEAR TO GOD I WILL RIP THE ARMS OFF OF EVERYONE IN RETRO STUDIOS AND SLAP ALL OF JAPANESE NINTENDO WITH THEM, YOU JUST LET DIXIE GO AFTER DKC 3 SHE ONLY APPEARED IN OTHER GAMES, I HATE TINY, YOU NNNEEEEEEDDD TO BRING BACK DIXIE!!!

  7. Thanks for another informative website. The place else could I am getting that type of information written in such an ideal approach? I’ve a mission that I’m simply now running on, and I’ve been on the glance out for such information.
