Whether you wanted them be or not, Retro Studios has been deep at work on a new Donkey Kong Country game, and they have finally lifted the veil and showed us their work. One of the first things that you will notice is that... gasp!... Donkey Kong and pals swim underwater again in this game!
The enemies this time are viking animals, which works for me, I guess? Also, Dixie is back. I'm pumped, what about you?
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze will be released in November of 2013. Get your wallets ready!
I'm really excited for it. Yeah, I wanted either a new IP or another Metroid Prime, but DKCR is in the running for greatest platformer I've ever played. Why not get excited about a sequel made more or less by the same team?
Both Super Mario 3d Land and DK CANT be their super special projects that take up most of their crew, im sure both studios could poop these type of titles out with 25% of their respective work force. im hopefull that an EPIC Mario title (Galaxy 3) and Metroid title are in the works....cause if they arent.....:(
not dissing Mario and DK, im sure ill enjoy them. im ashamed to say that i never finished DKCR.
And now another. What happened to the time between these things that Nintendo used to have? I miss that. Give me time away to pine for the game, like Luigi's Mansion. The Pikmin 3 wait was almost unbearable, which is why I'm SO looking forward to it in a few months. This doesn't feel new and exciting. This feels like tacking on levels to an existing game and releasing it for full price.
I WANT NEW STUFF FROM RETRO DANG IT!
Like I said, it's just because the news that this is what Retro is up to was my biggest disappointment of show, that's all. In the end, no big deal, life goes on. I just wanted so much to see Retro spread their wings and soar. This feels like Retro in a cage with its wings tied together.
