Donkey Kong Country Returns to 3DS This Sunday
Nintendo today announced that Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D will launch on May 24th for the Nintendo 3DS, offering players new features that were not available in the original Wii game and a new 3D makeover.
To optimize Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D for portable play, “New Mode” has been added to the game. In New Mode, players have access to new items and game-play features. These items include portable “DK Barrels,” which players can use at any time to have access to Diddy Kong; “Green Balloons,” used to protect Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong from falling off a cliff or ledge; and “Crash Guards,” which make players temporarily invincible in rocket barrel or mine cart areas. Fans can also play in “Original Mode” to experience the game as it was originally designed.
Exclusive to Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D are eight new levels located on a cloud that can only be reached by going through the Golden Temple after players complete the main game. Two players that both own a copy of the game can also connect via local wireless to team up as Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong for some multiplayer action.
