First Screens of Donkey Kong Country Returns from Nintendo's E3

GFB: "Donkey Kong Country is probably one of the most remembered titles from the Super Nintendo system and later on the Nintendo 64 (requiring the RAM cart, remember those?). Thanks to the same team that revived the Metroid franchise on the Gamecube, we now have Donkey Kong Country back. Check out the first screens of Retro Studios' Donkey Kong Country Returns."

yeah, I wasnt believing the rumours before hand, but I was seriously shocked when I heard the music, looks amazing, and this year too!!

Reibooi5142d ago

They did exactly what they should have with it and that is bring it back to it's roots. The game looked incredible and it's still the same old Donkey Kong Country we love. I can't wait to play it.

Oh my god, this brings back memories. Nintendo just had an amazing showing, I can't believe it. Game after game, after game. This conference was just pure greatness.

Really smart move to keep the gameplay mostly the same as the originals. All of the nintendo fans of the 90s are coming out of the shadows right now.

I wish they would have resurrected and used the Nintendo Power name. I had almost every issue starting from around Mario 3 forward, and at one time had Nintendo Power foldout posters as an upper border on the wall, circling my entire room.

I also have well, every issue of Nintendo Power and also some Fun Club Issues before it transformed into Nintendo Power. They are all stacked in a plastic tote lol. Most have probably turned yellow by now. If you would like the whole collection as a torrent there is one here: https://www.reddit.com/r/Da... Torrent magnet link.

Between the low sales, the shit in the memory that simply dies and the regional crash on the Gamepad. This is a console that will become stupidly rare in a few years.

Still got my black one fully working, I should maybe box that bad boy up lol

It's really funny to think about people harvesting Wii U parts like some organ trafficker and selling them on the dark web.

But sure enough, Nintendo Will probably try to find a way to put a legal bullet in the base of that person's skull.

Actually its the opposite, boxing it up is what will kill the machine. You want it plugged in, and you want to power it on frequently, that's how you'll extend the life of the memory chips. This brief video explains it.

Appreciate the tip chocoburger
