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!
The game looks great and will probably be fantastic, but Nintendo has a dozen other teams that can do platformers. Why couldn't Retro be doing something like Metroid, or a new adventure IP? It just seems like a huge waste of resources.
Yeah, we were really (a few of us on here) hoping for some Mario 2-type deal..so while it isn't Sub-Con (OR IS IT WHAT), you still get the 4-P Floaty Princess stuff. Did they show the "overworld" at all?
Yeah I don't understand the disappointment either. And based on your link... I suspect Metroid is their next move. Starting this fall I bet they'll be cooking up Metroid Prime U. I sure hope so. Holiday next year!!!! maybe...
DK, Diddy and Dixie? Check. Great environments? Check. David Wise? Check Kremlings? Nope.
So close to perfection, so close. Should be good anyway. Am I the only one thinking that Retro has TWO secret projects. They have been expanding a ton and them working on a Metroid in secret would literally blow everyones mind. People keep saying Nintendo needs to be surprising, imagine a month from now a ND with Iwata announcing a new Metroid made by Metroid. Press and fans alike would go crazy and the Wii U hype train would start.
You think you've defeated me? This is not the end. Yes, I am sealed, unable to break free of my own strength...but as long as mankind lusts for power, for conquest, for dominance, there will always be those who sail in my wake. And they will find me here, in this barrel, and I will promise them everything, and I will take all they have. And I will be unleashed again, onto a slumbering world, and their nightmares will be real once again!
And as their wails of anguish rise into the night, the immense truth will settle upon them! THEY WILL KNOW THAT THE KREMLINGS ARE JUST AWFUL! SERIOUSLY, THE WORST!
