I went apeshit when I heard the news.


DK, I just want you to know that I love you.

Co - Op!

Quote:

* For the first time ever, the franchise features the ability for two people to play together at the same time (additional accessories required and are sold separately) - one as Donkey Kong, one as Diddy Kong. Players can navigate the levels separately or as one unit. Diddy Kong can ride on Donkey Kong's back and hop off whenever he pleases, allowing novice players to ride on Donkey Kong's back through more challenging areas of the game.
Hidden items, puzzle pieces and other surprises are found all through the jungle. Spell out K-O-N-G by the end of each level to earn an extra bonus.

Remember K. Rool's outfit from Super Mario Sluggers? Look at how tiki-themed this one is.

RELATION BETWEEN THE TWO?

TRBB 16th June 2010 12:36 AM

CO-OP CONFIRMED!!! Now I can play it with my friends! *Cpt. Falcon Voice* YES!

Teafed 16th June 2010 12:37 AM

Controlled by a group of evil Tikis, the animals in Donkey Kong Island have raided Donkey Kong's Banana Hoard and stolen his stash of bananas - and he understandably wants them back. Retro Studios brings Donkey Kong™ back in a new side-scrolling adventure with familiar characters and new levels that reignite the passion players had for the Super NES™ original.
No K. Rool/Kremlings...ah well.

Looks rather tribal, does it not? This game could have very well been in production at the same time as Super Mario Sluggers.

I'm calling it. K. Rool convinced the tikis to raid DK's banana hoard and will turn out to be the puppet master. Remember DKC3? Until the end, the main villain was supposed to be a robot named KAOS. I wouldn't be surprised if the same thing happened here.

If not, oh well. At least DK isn't a terrorist this time (Jungle Beat).

Really? Hmm, I never played DKC3 to be honest, so maybe you're right. I can't imagine why they would've put K. Rool out of the blue in Mario Super Sluggers (I always called him Pharaoh K. Roolenkhamun in that game :p) if they weren't going to use him in any other games.

Either way, this is easily my most anticipated game this year now!

Maybe King K. Rool will be brought back (he is the true main villain), I mean they wouldn't (normally) through Bowser out like that, why do it to DK's villain?

Tikimen aside, I am stoked for this game and will definitely be getting a copy.

There is not a thing I've seen about this that makes me skeptical. It looks exactly like what I've always wanted and more. The fact that Diddy rides on DK's back cool and they can perform special team moves it appears.

King K. Rool's Aztec-like getup in Mario Super Sluggers was a foreshadowing.

No doubts remain.

Well, hey! DKC again! Who'da thunk it? And to think that just a few weeks back, we were all fretting about how they'd never revisit this series again... actually, the fretting was mostly on my part. But, still. What a gift from Video Game Heaven. As soon as I heard about this, it became my single most anticipated game since Twilight Princess. And it's coming out this year! I do have some mild reservations, though...

First, the Kremlings. I don't see them. I guess K. Rool's tribal outfit in the baseball game might be foreshadowing, but part of me thinks that's a rather weak omen. There seem to be either evil apes or mole-men in the mine cart stages. It'll be odd to see anything other than Kremling mooks riding on there. Secondly, I didn't see any animal buddies. I'd have expected Rambi to be among the first things they churn out, were this a true return to the series. As it is, it looks like a hybrid between the first DKC and DKJB. Not a bad thing in and of itself, but I'm still a little wary. In any case, I can forget about seeing Rattly again (or as I like to call him, Quadruple Amputee Yoshi).

Then there are the Tikimen. Well, they're OK, I guess. That little tribal chief guy riding on that airship looks pretty funny, it'll be fun to bash his face in at the end of the stage (game?). My main complaint about them is that, up until now, there had been no magic in the DKC world... Inca Dinca Doo is not pleased. On the upside, Donkey and Diddy fight the Reek from Attack of the Clones! Honestly, I never thought I'd see the day. And they have that "Canadian barrel roll" attack Dixie and Kiddy did in DKC3. As far as throwbacks go, that's a pretty epic one.

Can't wait, can't wait, can't wait!
