Hey, I'm Grump 13th June 2010 10:56 AM

Donkey Kong Country Returns! FINALLY
 
It's official. Donkey Kong Country is returning with Retro Studios at the helm. They are doing what Rare could not.

But will it be a DKC style reboot, or an original DK reboot?

As M.Bison would of said it...




YES!

Heheh, Imagine they made Donkey Kong an FPS like they did Metroid. :P

Can't wait to see what they'll do with it. I loved the games they made, so far.

Original in what sense? Original as in a whole new gameplay and story line? Or original in the sense of giant-ape-steals-blonde-girl-from-carpenter/plumber-causing-Universal-to-try-to-sue-Nintendo original?

I mean, chances are, if this is true, it will be either a DKC-style sidescroller with Wii motion controls to modernize it or a DK64-style adventure-platformer complete with Wii-enhanced FPS silliness.

Something tells me that after all the flops DK has experienced since they sold Rare, Nintendo isn't going to be as willing to allow any revolutionary adjustments to the ultra-successful nineties formulas.

Wow! This is seriously awesome if true. I'm sure Retro will do a great job with the title like they have with all of the other games they have made. If Nintendo announces Starfox this year as well, then they have automatically won E3.

It better have co-op if this is true.

My jaw just hit the floor.

This one.

I thought Miyamoto didn't like DKC?

It wouldn't make much sense though as most are familiar with Rare's DK.

No, I think it was that DKC was so popular with its graphics that people weren't paying as much attention to Super Mario World or something. He stated something along the lines of how gamers seem to care more about graphics and will ignore average / mediocre gameplay like from DKC. Then he apologized later on, saying that he was just under a lot of pressure from Nintendo telling him to make a game like DKC.
Then he game out with Yoshi's Island with its crayon graphics, and all was good.

I think... I may be a tad off in that explanation...

Epic. Retro won't fail.

I hope for a DK_Epic_Win_Platformer.
