I cannot help it, the 12-year old inner me is just jumping up and down for joy that Donkey Kong Country is coming back! I loved this series when I was younger, and the new title looks to capture everything that made the originals great in a shiny new package.
After seeing how Retro Studios handled the Metroid IP with such care, I have complete faith in what they are doing with Donkey Kong Country Returns. A little more information has made its way out of E3 and it turns out that the game will support 2-player cooperative play. I know how much of a blast New Super Mario Bros. was with a friend, and this should be just as enjoyable.
We have shown you the screens and given you info on the story previously, now check out Nintendo’s official trailer for the game which launches this coming Holiday season:
