Donkey Kong Country Returns to the Wii this Christmas - Hands-On Preview

Gaming Target writes:

"The Donkey Kong series is a favorite of mine, so I had to try it on the E3 show floor. As soon as I heard the soundtrack, a giant wave of nostalgia hit me. The 2D style was immediately familiar; I was Donkey Kong again and I was running, jumping, swinging, and bouncing off the heads of my enemies. I fired myself out of barrel cannons, pounded the ground to find extra bananas, and, of course, chucked a few barrels, it was like riding a bike." (Donkey Kong Country Returns, E3, Wii)

I don't think this person has ever played donkey kong country for the snes. He talks about things that were in the first game like they're something new.

2 player co-op, it was on the snes
rescuing partner from a barrel, that too was on the snes.

Either way, the game looks awesome.

On a side note, i'd love to see nintendo task one of their teams with making a sequel to star fox adventures. That would be awesome. Sometimes I feel like i'm the only person who really enjoyed that game.

While there was 2-player co-op in DKC on the SNES, it was "tag team" style and only one person could play at a time. In DKCR, both players can play at the same time.

You could play at the same time in the snes version, there were two modes, "contest" & "team." Contest was tag team like you mentioned but team let both players play at the same time.
