Amazon price seems to be inching downwards (down to 32 now), but $25 is lowest I've seen so far. Hoping to pick it up at $20 after tax.

a fantastic wii game. a great platformer with the talented Retro team holdin' it down! if you are at all doubtfull of the game, read gamespot's review. Tomk McShea LOVES platormers & knows his stuff. everywhere gave it a good review though, lol. don't see it going lower unless it becomes a player's choice or whatever. grap it!

Hey since we're on the topic of Walmart.

Kirby's epic yarn is 24.96 as well.

http://www.walmart.c...ii-Wii/15076256

Can a few CAG's also please report this one to Amazon as well? I'd appreciate that :D . Both are solid prices for solid games so tempting.

Reported the lower price to Amazon. Would love to snag this without going to Walmart.

just curious: is this one of those nintendo games that pretty much stays at around 50 bucks forever? I.e. brawl and stuff like that? I noticed a lot of first party games seem locked in price forever for some idiotic reason

is this one of them? If so i may get it at this price

Wow, I just ordered both DKCR and Kirby's Epic Yarn in like new used condish via AWD for the same prices basically last night. Definitely going to cancel that order and swing on by the Walmart up the road, new copies and Nintendo Club points for the win! Thanks OP.

I don't expect its MSRP will go down any time soon, considering the Nintendo Selects program only just now got around to putting Super Mario Galaxy 1 and other old first party games at a lower price. Who knows though, with the recent Wii MSRP drop and upcoming holiday season.

You guys want to "tell amazon about a lower price?" I would appreciate it, thanks!

would save on shipping/don't have to waste gas (no walmarts by me).

Just bought this two weeks ago for $35... since when do Nintendo prices plummet like this? (Not complaining... totally worth the $35).

Whatever happened to that "all video games ship free" thing at walmart? I thought that was a new policy, but I guess it was just a limited time thing.

Very conflicted on buying this. I can see it either staying near msrp if they stop printing this, or I can see it drop to sub $20 everywhere pretty soon, not counting a selects release that may or may not happen.... If you are a non-selects box kind of person, then I guess this is a great time to get it for peace of mind.

Great price on one of the best 2D platformers this generation. Literally EVERY level throws something completely new your way. Yes, I miss the Kremlings, and yes, shaking the wiimote to roll takes some getting used to, but this game is FANTASTIC and I highly recommend it to any platforming enthusiasts.

This is probably one of the few times I have to say no to a deal like this because I love 2D Platformers and have been eying this game for months.

Then again I am buying 3 games on Tuesday. This could wait :lol:

I've been waiting for this game to drop in price. I have a huge backlog of games and I tried to resist........needless to say, went to Best buy and price matched.

Just picked up my copies, and while the store itself was a total mess of people scrambling to shop before Labor Day, the site-to-store area was calm and the process took no more than 5 minutes, in and out for both DK and Kirby. Didn't even have to print my confirmation email--just gave the associate my ID. Thanks a lot OP.

Quick question if i get this, can i use a gamecube or classic controller, or is it wiimote?

only if you want more from the game. ask yourself that question and look deep within your soul. if you can't figure it out by then well go and rub one out and then think about it some more. thats usually the process i do when i can't make a decision.

From what I understand the game's only major downfall is that it requires you use the Wiimote, or Wiimote with nunchuk. You have to shake the controller to make DK roll, which sucks. If your Wii is modded you may be able to work around it.

I paid around $26 on this several months back. My girlfriend and I split the cost, and it's definitely worth it. Still haven't finished it though.

I'm sure, bummer right? The back of the box only shows the Wiimote and Nunchuk icons.

Stop whining about the waggle. It's perfectly responsive.

Still haven't played my copy, but yeah, the gameplay and level design looks excellent. I'm not gonna let the waggle ruin it for me.

Its a fun game, worth the 25 especially if you have kids. If you cant beat a certain level it will allow you to skip if you fail like 5 times, so the kids dont have to have you beat it for them. And if your an advance gamer, it allows you to replay the levels and gives you obkective to get if you want to complete beat the game.

meh waited too long. Out of stock at my store now. It seems to say i can ship to store. Guess i'll do that and just cancel it when it comes in if amazon PM's. Really sucks about the controller. I dont know why Nintendo insists on forcing people to use shitty waggle garbage for classic style games. Why even have the classic controller or GC controller compatibility if you never use them

*edit* stupid tax. adds 2.14 to the price. I hope amazon PM's. Our tax is too god damn high here
