The lights are on
Nintendo announced that Donkey Kong Country Returns would be coming to the 3DS sometime this year, and now we have a release date. What are you doing this May?
The official release date is May 24. Nintendo didn't have much else to add, so they provided the above image of a gorilla messing around with a Game Boy Advance SP. They're like a real-life version of Donkey Kong and his little buddy, Diddy, only about a million times more depressing to look at.
On the bright side, Dan had a great time with the game when it was released on Wii back in 2010. You can see his review over here.

I may pick this up.... But I already have the Wii game, and yes it fantastic, but do I really need it again so soon. I don't know yet, I guess I'll have to decide come may 24 though.
I really want a 3DS after watching Luigi's Mansion replay. I'll probably be playing a lot of Injustice and Revelations come time in May. Nintendo needs to market miiverse alone, its the coolest gaming social network to date!
If it wasn't just a remake of the Wii version I'd buy it. Really wish it could have been it's own game.
Just another game I'm glad that's coming to 3DS. I'm buying it on day one.
That's a DSIXl GI. Get your console recognization straight.
Is this pic real? It loos like it, but photoshop has fooled me before. -_-
Wow I can't wait for this! Finally consumers will be able to experience this fantastic game on the go! I'll definitely be purchasing Donkey Kong Country Returns™ and I suggest you do too. You won't regret it!
I love that picture.
Okay this is the straw to break the camels back. I have to buy a 3DS now.
That is obviously a DSi XL. Come on Cork, get your facts straight!!
