The swingin’ king of the jungle is back to go ape in a new dimension in Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D for Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL. Available from today, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D lets you explore Donkey Kong Island in a familiar way: keep a watchful eye out for collectibles on the beach, in the jungle and beyond.
Old-school players can re-live their Wii adventure in Original mode, but if things get too tricky, help is at hand in New mode. Making things a little easier, New mode gives Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong three hearts each instead of the usual two, while Cranky Kong’s shop has plenty of fun and helpful items for you to buy that will help save you from falls, allow the Mine Cart and Rocket Barrel to take a second hit, and even let you use a DK Barrel whenever you like, so don’t be shy in spending those hard-earned Banana Coins.
And if you don’t want to go it alone, you can team-up with a friend in Local Play: take on the whole videogame as the terrific twosome and pelt opponents with Diddy’s Peanut Popgun, hover using his Barrel Jet or slam bad guys into submission with Donkey Kong’s Ground Pound. Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D is available for Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL from today, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest outings from everybody’s favourite videogame simian.
