The official Italian Nintendo Twitter account posted a very interesting tweet today, and it has generated a lot of buzz and speculation. A picture was tweeted with the caption “there’s no two without three”. A lot of people are speculating is that this is teasing a new Donkey Kong game on the Switch. Some also speculating even further that this may be the new Retro title that is in the works. Whatever it is, we will likely find out soon. In the meantime, we’ve included Nintendo Italy’s picture down below.
I would be incredibly happy if they announced DKCR3, especially now that people won’t dismiss it for not being Metroid (which definitely affected the review scores for DKC Tropical Freeze).
What in the heck….
That’ll make it a good opportunity for this sequel to have his spot without any negative issues that diminish its chance to gain popularity. This series deserves to recover the popularity that have in the SNES era.
I really wanted a new IP from Retro but what if they’ve actually been working on TWO games? Think about it. One of the guys they hired wrote music for Deus Ex. I highly doubt they got him for Donkey Kong. Didn’t David Wise say he was working in Austin Texas again too? Two games don’t seem too far fetched now do they? 😉
It’s been known for nearly a decade that they have two development teams dedicated to different projects. Of course they’re working on two games. You don’t need to speculate to realize that.
If it’s been like that for a decade how come we haven’t seen more games from them from 2008 – now?
I’m hoping for a Donkey Kong Country Returns 3 but a 3D adventure game. Much like DK 64.
Diddy Kong Racing above all. :)
||The entire point of the DKCR formula is to go back to its 2D roots of the original ones, it will never happen…||
||A 3D Donkey Kong will happen eventually however…||
Hope we get a 3D platformer this time around.
God I hope not. Donkey Kong is the last holdout to the lazy design of 3D platformers.
1 2 Switch sequal confirmed!!!
It could be referencing a third DK Character in the upcoming smash. Trixie Kong?
Pleeeeease be a new DK game from Retro! :D
I don’t think it will be a new DKCR with a Switch port of Tropical Freeze just around the corner, but I would be delighted to see one. I do hope we get a new 3D Donkey Kong the likes of DK64 at some point.
Indeed. It’s almost 20 years since Donkey Kong 64. Who knows, perhaps it will be released in 2019 to commemorate the 20 years of DK 64.
DKCR 3 is coming
It may be revealed in E3 :)
After Smash Switch trailer and DKC Tropical Freeze for Switch trailer, I didn’t expect to have this post teasing a third DK game. Excellent news!
Half life 3 confirmed
Came looking for this particular post. You sir have done us all a service~
“A lot of people are speculating that this is teasing a new Donkey King game on Switch.” Gee, I wonder why…
DANGIT typo. Donkey Kong.
WordPress really needs an edit comment button.
While I’m fine with whatever concerning Donkey Kong & Retro Studios, my preference would be a Donkey Kong Country Returns 3, like how the original Country games came in 3, THEN a Donkey Kong 64 like 3D platform game later on. No reason why DKCTF & a DKCR3 can’t co-exist when they came one year after the other. Hell! 3rd parties do it all the damn time with their yearly releases & those games tend to sell no better or worse than the game that came a year prior. Besides, DKCTF for Switch is a port being done by a different developer anyway so screw it!
I’m seeing several comments hoping against it being a 3D platformer because they don’t want another DK64. It’s like, do you honestly think they’ll just copy the DK64 format with its overabundance of minigames?
