The upcoming Donkey Kong Country Returns port for 3DS has been somewhat mysterious. We knew it would be a direct port and add stereoscopic 3D, but we weren't sure if it would have anything completely new.
A press release on Nintendo's UK site reveals that the game will in fact have new content. You can check out the full release here, but here are the highlights:
Grab the letters that spell out K-O-N-G and nab puzzle pieces hidden in each stage to unlock extra content, like super-tough Trophy levels. Unlock and conquer every one of these special stages and a brand new surprise awaits!New mode makes the going just a little easier, giving Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong three hearts each instead of the usual two, letting them Kong-a for longer!
