Amazon has posted what it presumably the final box-art for the forthcoming Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D for the Nintendo 3DS.

This new version of the game sports 3D visuals and is developed by Monster Games who are the developers behind Pilot Wings Resort. Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D is due to be released May 24th in North America.
Thanks, Mike S
A recent listing for Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D on the Nintendo 3DS shows that Monster Games are the developers behind the game. Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D was announced during a previous Nintendo Direct presentation. Monster Games were the development studio behind both Excite Truck and Pilotwings Resort.
You may remember that there was a rumour floating around which stated that Monster Games is developing Diddy Kong Racing for Wii U. Well, according to Emily Rogers, who is a collaborator and supporter with indie game developers, the game isn’t in development. Monster Games is the development studio behind Excite Truck for Wii and Pilotwings Resort for the Nintendo 3DS.
Wherever that rumor came from…well…it’s bogus. Not true. Monster Games is not making DKR for Wii U.
A Game Faqs member claims that a sequel to Diddy Kong Racing is in the works for Wii U. The member, who goes by the name yakkiduck, says Monster Games is working on the project, which is supposedly releasing sometime next year.
The member also says the unconfirmed game will feature an adventure mode, online multiplayer, Miiverse implementation, and players will be able to race as their Mii characters.
If this rumor is true, which would you rather get first – another Mario Kart or Diddy Kong Racing – for Nintendo’s new Wii U console?
The latest edition of the Pilotwings franchise for the Nintendo 3DS is developed by Monster Games, the developers behind the ExciteTruck and ExciteBots games.
Nintendo Producer Kensuke Tanabe revealed that the game was being developed by Monster Games whilst he was lecturing at the Donkey Kong Country Returns panel at this years Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.
