"Back in 2010 the gaming world was reintroduced to the Donkey Kong Country series with a brand-new Retro Studios-developed entry in the franchise known as Donkey Kong Country Returns for the Nintendo Wii. It is now three years later and who could have guessed a game like DKCR could be possible on a handheld. That is exactly what has happened with Monster Games porting the Wii original to the Nintendo 3DS with Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. Is this game a top banana or a rotten one?
What You Need to Know
Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D is a port of the Wii original that released back in 2010. While Retro Studios developed the Wii game, Monster Games (the folks behind the Wii Excite games and Pilotwings Resort) worked on the 3DS port. All of the content of the original DKCR is included with this Returns 3D, but there’s also a good helping of completely exclusive to the 3DS version content. In many regards, the game is a much better overall product for it.", writes Nintendo-Okie.
