  1. Wow, interesting! The only Donkey Kong games I ever got to play was one of the Donkey Kong Country games a long time ago (Pre-N64). It was a rental, so I never got to beat it, but, from what I can remember of it, it was a great game. I wonder if it will return to that graphical style, or if it will be 3rd person 3D somehow?

  2. Great news. I just recently bought the first Donkey Kong Country game on VC and played through and beat the game after 3 days. It was awesome gameplay I’ve had in awhile and I’m amped to see some new stuff from that universe that doesn’t pertain to Donkey Konga.

  3. the only way this will work is if it’s along the lines of DKC, or DK64. The Bongos were a disaster.

  4. It’s kind of disappointing that it’s not being made by Rare. I am always hoping for a new Donkey Kong Country.

    1. Rare is owned by Microsoft now, so it would be impossible for Rare to develop this one.

      1. That stinks. Maybe Retro is making a DKC game and will do a good job on it. Thanks for telling me.

  5. This looked awesome! For those of you who didn’t catch the Press Conference, It’s Official name is Donkey Kong Country Returns. It looked exactly how I imagined it would! This is definitely a must-buy!
