CCC says: "There were plenty of whispers before E3 about what surprise game Nintendo would unveil. With Retro Studios locked behind closed doors, many assumed the secret title would be from them. But what? It was either going to be a new Metroid game or a new Donkey Kong Country game. Considering the high pedigree of each series, most would be happy with either choice, but this time around it’s DK that rolled onto the stage."
