Donkey Kong Country Returns: Release Date and E3 Trailer

We have a treat for Nintendo fans now, as the company unveiled a brand new Donkey Kong game that is in development for the Nintendo Wii. This is the moment where retro gamers read on.

The game has been given the title Donkey Kong Country Returns and will be a 2D platformer, with 3D visuals in the background. Basically think of everything you loved about the SNES version and imagine it with Wii graphics. The game has been scheduled for a release sometime in November.

We even had that catchy DK theme tune as well playing in the background. The level shown saw Donkey Kong pair up with Diddy for some co-op action at the same time – similar to New Super Mario Bros. on the Wii.

The game looks very impressive, and a must buy for fans of the original game on SNES. Consider me sold for this one. Check out the debut E3 trailer below and let us know your reaction to the news.

I doubt its any better than the original donkey kong series. Its starting to turn into what happend to sonic the hedgehog. Sonic was a classic then sega improvised and everyone hates sonic now.

I find it unlikely that this will be as good as the originals, but things like this rarely are. However, I am still greatly encouraged that Nintendo has taken this route.

finally a new REAL donkey kong game, i would consider this to be the 5th donkey kong game after dkc1 dkc2 dkc3 and donkey kong 64, i doubt itll be better than dkc2, that was and probably will always be the best donkey kong game, but i still have high expectations for this game for sure, and from what ive seen on the demo it looks pretty sweet so far

As shown in the trailer, the game looks and sounds good. However, I don't really think it looks SNES-like enough. Plus, the fancy, flowing graphics make the game look too easy; kind of like how "Yoshi Story" for the N-64 was too easy compared to "Yoshi's Island" on the SNES. Newer, fancier technology just can't beat the original DKC SNES trilogy.
