    Excited about this one, you can't go wrong with a solid 2D DK platform game, even better when Retro Studious is behind it.
    Our news article mmgn.com/...

    I know that we are starting to get a few side scrollers coming to the Wii U and these days it is the safe card especially when you use a popular franchise. Still I'm keen to get this game and will not hesitate to buy it, pretty sure this will work like NSMB and be able to be played on the gamepad alone and that comes in handy for me.

    To be honest i'm not at all interested. 2D sidescrollers made a welcome come back a few years ago but now it feels everyone is doing them.
    I am sick to death of New Super Mario [sick]
    I want a 3D Donkey Kong! Retro would have blown people away with it. (not forgetting a new Metroid Prime also)

    Retro said they had to choose between DK and Metroid, chose DK.

    Nothing wrong with that at all!

    I am pretty excited for this. Not the game on top of my list but it's up there!

    They said in the Developer Direct the playable characters are Donkey Kong, Diddy, Dixie and once unannounced character. Please be Cranky Kong!!! The other choices from memory, unless it's a newer character, are Funky and Candy with Funky being the most likely. Cranky would be so amazing.

    You just have to take a look at the difference in sales between the last DK release and all of the Metroid Prime games. I believe DK sold more than all the prime games out together. interesting though that Rare bought guys in from Naughty Dog to assist. I'm guessing for the vistas.

    Or they're working on more than one game!

    Naughty Dog guys or ex Naughty Dog guys? Aren't they owned by Sony?

    Or Kiddy Kong from DKC3 (was my main guess), or Tiny, Chunky or Lanky from DK64.

    Yeah ex Naughty dog, they also hired people from Vigil, Junction Point and Bioware! Which all fueled speculation they were working on something very big.

    I don't know... I haven't seen this video (jootoob blocked at work and could see in on my phone) but I saw some trailers that were available on my phone and it was just Returns 2.

    The automatic barrels are so annoying!! Where are the strategic barrels that you have to time or slightly under/over shoot to get a bonus level??

    Meh, probably will wait till it goes on sale. I'll play it for $20. :P

    I think there were some manual barrels..I'm pretty sure. Well, I won't be getting this as it's Wii U.

    I said that about the first one. It's still full price :P

    There was a good sale very close to release (from memory) for $49? I think I did that with a trade in. So $40. Fine! I'll pay $40!! :P

    Yeah, there were some, but the video I saw had HEAPS. There's actually more manual ones in the vid in this thread. Ha!

    David Wise (the original Donkey Kong Country composer) being back makes me happy, this soundtrack is going to be something special.

    Donkey Kong 64?

    Just watched the stage demo over at Gamespot as well as a couple gameplay vids. This game is looking REALLY good!

    Surprisingly that game holds its value even though it has been out for a while and is on a console that had been replaced.

    It happens with Nintendo games, the prices rarely budge here.

    I scanned Zelda TP at Big W the other day and it's $88!! THIS WAS A LAUNCH TITLE.

    Even though N have made the TWH redundant, I think the HBC was one of the main reasons that held it's value for so long.

    Rayman has set the 2d platformer bar incredibly high! Can Donkey take back his crown?

    Bunch of online retailers have either removed the date for this or have it listed as 2014 :(
