During today's Nintendo Direct, Satoru Iwata announced that Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze has been delayed to February of next year.
This is a huge blow to the Wii U's holiday lineup :(
It got donkey punched. As diddy I. ------- Puns aside, I love playing lighthearted platformers around the Christmas/New Year break. They just feel so perfect. This game will be missed this break, was looking forward to it.
For sure. Just knowing that this is going to keep Retro from working on Metroid Prime 4 EVEN longer, makes this all the more disappointing.
I don't think this is bad at all. There is a lot coming out before Christmas but nothing we've heard of til March with Mario Kart 8. This will help bridge the gap as it'll be a big seller and there will be more owners by then too!
on a more positive note sonic was announced for smash bros, so now we have sonic, megaman, mario, link, fox, dk plus all the others all in one game thats gota be a good thing :)
when does smash brothers come out ?
some point in 2014 hopefully its early 2014 tho :/
Wow that sucks, but I guess Retro wants to ensure it is as polished as it can be. I was looking forward to playing this over the holidays, but I still have a little bit of a back log with my other Wii U games (Pikmin 3, Rayman, Wonderful 101). Still have Zelda this week, plus Sonic, Mario, Watch Dogs, AC4 and CoD: Ghosts to keep me busy.
Ain't that the truth! There is so much coming out over the next few months, it really doesn't matter anyway. It will be played in due time.
Lame! I was looking forward to HD DK after playing 3D DK earlier this year.
new nintendo console incoming...
how the hell did you pull that from this two month delay
please look at the sales of the games and consoles. Soon third parties will give a damn on porting their games to wiiU . Nintendo needs so hard a counterpart to ps4. I am sure that they already realised that they are not in the same situation as the wii when casual games were super sellers aided by their novelty (wii sports, wii fit, wii play & wii party kind of games). There is no novelty on that ugly tablet like control. thats what I think they are already working on a proper nex gen console.
Hurts real bad, I had this in for provisional Game of the Year.
fine with me with Sernan Kagura Burst Pokemon Y Sonic Lost World Wii U Super Mario 3D World Zelda A Link Between Worlds Zelda Wind Waker HD finally getting Zero Escape Virtue's Last Reward 3DS Tales of Versperia and Xillia I am glad.
This is actually a smart move. Give the dev team more time to polish the game and really, let's be honest, it being released so close to 3D World would probably hurt it in sales. Not to mention what's coming out for the Wii U in the first few months in 2014? Exactly. We don't want another "please understand". So spreading games out like this is a good idea. With that being said i'm a DKC fanatic and hearing this was a huge punch to the gut. Oh well, at least 3D World looks good now.
