There's nothing wrong with donkey kong country's graphics. They were the last good looking Nintendo games for like 5 years.

I heard the Wii version has some crappy Motion Controls added in (for no reason, could be played with buttons, it is a remake of an "old-school" game), and also that it's a pretty tough game later on, and that the motion controls become bothersome and actually add to the challenge due to not being able to control fluently and responsively. I'd rather pay the extra amount for this 3DS version before I touch the Wii version, from what I've heard of the controls.


I think the motion controls do get a little bothersome after long play sessions. It's the same thing for the high jump spin move on new super mario bros Wii. I agree I'd rather have the option to make it a simple button press instead. It sounds like the 3ds version is the right way to go if u feel this way.

I would love them to relase donkey jr (not sure on title)

Its a looking mario with like a paint gun and u jump and shoot kong. kong is hanging on a rope and u keep shoot up to knock him off, but while doing that
there are bees,etc. to try to prevent u from doing it. Oh man that game was fun back then.


As SoonersFan60 said, it's DK3. (And the origin of my user name here and on PSN - it's funny to play with chat enabled and hear people who've never played it speculate that I might just be an exterminator IRL. :lol:)

Maybe not as a standalone game but a release of a DK HD Collection (DK, DK jr., DK3, DKC 1,2,3) would be awesome. I'm not sure if Rare or Nintendo has possession of the original 3D character models from the DKC games but IIRC they were rendered in HD before being turned into sprites.

I loved this game on the Wii but I hope the 3DS version has more levels.

I want to get the Wii version to play on my Wii U, but I haven't been able to find a new copy anywhere for a good price. I don't understand why it isn't a part of Nintendo Selects at this point.


I've been waiting forever for it to become a Nintendo Select along with New Super Mario Bros Wii.

Yeah, I do have it on the Wii, and it was the "Greatest" game I never played/finished due to forced motion controls. This game is the perfect example of everything done right on Wii(Awesome classic 2D game remade), and everything wrong with the Wii(forced motion controls for a 2D platformer, WTF!). I'll be getting this day 1, and I'm glad Nintendo gave me a second chance, although I wouldn't need it if they hadn't of Fuck up the first time around. LOL


agreed, shit infuriates me. can't wait for the 3ds version

Unless rolling is drastically different in DKCR, did you forget that you hit "Y" to roll in the SNES DKC games?


It is drastically different, every time you roll you go pretty far. I wouldn't want to to roll every time I press run, that would cause me to constantly fall off cliffs and hit spiked enemies.

Digital distribution is the death of the preservation of the arts.

I agree 100%. I actually had the game on my Christmas list the year it came out. I ended up getting to try it at Best Buy and hated the forced motion controls. Of course by that point it was too late and I received it as a gift. To this day it is still unopened. I'm definitely looking forward to this release.

Hey, does Amazon ever offer "release day" shipping anymore? I'm not a prime member, but I was able to get it for several games last year at .99 a pop. Now I never see it anymore, what happened?

Yes, on most titles - sometimes it does not get added until closer to release date.
With Nintendo first party games, however, it is a different story. Ninty vs Amazon 'Shipping Delays' (Lego City, Fire Emblem, etc), some Sunday releases, etc.

Yeah, I've noticed in the past how it can "come & go" before release. Normally I never bothered with Nintendo releases, as they are mostly on Sundays, but since this was on Friday, So I figured I'd give it a shot. I'll check back periodically and see if it gets added.
