Is Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D 30 or 60 fps?

GameXplain: "Does Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D run at 60 frames per second like the Wii version, or a lowly 30fps? Find out in our 3DS vs. Wii head-to-head comparison video!" (3DS, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, Wii)

Not surprising at all. I know Sly Cooper 4 runs at 30fps on the Vita instead of the 60 of the PS3. They're ports made in an afterthought after all.

Who would have thoght that a portable gaming devices have less horsepower than a stationary console, right?
I bought a Sly 4 just for Vita and DKCR is tempting me to buy a 3DS. Love them good platform games on the go.

OMG!!! What a turd of a game! Blowing up the screen, slowing down the video and attempting to check the difference frame by frame shows there to be less fluidity on the hand held port! Who would have thought??? /s

Good grief. If there's really anyone who thinks less of this 3DS game because of this difference, then I don't see how gaming is even any fun to you anymore...

I really tend to like games running at 60fps, especially when they're ones that require even the smallest amount of twitchy skill to them. That's why I'll take Devil May Cry 3 over the new DmC any day, for example. Call it a bias I developed from starting out on NES and SNES, where most games ran at 60... obviously not Star Fox.

However, Super Mario 3D Land recently proved me wrong about my preferences. The design trumped the framerate, I hardly cared. But that was an original game on the 3DS - I don't really take the 3DS on the go with me much, I play it where I am because there are some really freaking good games for it.

So, I've got an even choice between Wii and 3DS for this one- and given the choice here, I'd probably pick the Wii version. Screw waggle controls, but there's worse going on here than just framerate issues. The port looks devoid of color when you put these side by side.

Actually, the best solution would be to Dolphin it up in HD.

Does it really matter?

Im gonna go on a limb here and assume based off these peoples comments that this game is 61fps there!

The 3DS version has jagged visuals and slow frame rate. I barely see 30fps on that clip.

Not a game i'm really looking forward to anyway.

It's understandable in 3d it's gotta do 30 fps to each eye effectively giving it 60 fps, wish they would have kept it at 60 for the 2d mode though.

I'll stick to the far superior Wii version.

itd be great to have on the go as well as the VC digital copies of the originals but im not that into DKC series anyway so ill save my money on this port.. It looks decent on 3DS but the wii version looks & runs better

Well, wait a second. Isn't this game running in 3D at 30 fps??? Turn off the 3D and you should see 60 fps if not near 60 fps. Right?

The guy said at the end of the video that the 3d does not effect the frames per second, so the game runs at 30fps whether the 3d is on or off.
