    DKCR on wii is glorious – Well worth the investment. Perhaps this means the series will move full time to the 3DS platform now too?

  • i dont want to bash the hardware, but damn some Anti Aliasing would go a long way on games like this.

    • idrawrobots

      It’s amazing how well playing games in 3D gets rid of jaggies.

      • Or rather, how 3d helps you ignore the jaggies even though they’re still there in full force. Resident Evil Revelations adds anti-aliasing if you disable 3d, and the improvement in picture quality is _almost_ worth sacrificing 3d for. Almost!

    • Is this your first time looking at 3DS game screenshots? They always look like crap. It’s better to just watch this on your 3DS via the latest trailer. Looks a lot nicer on the actual screen.

      • i never played on a 3ds, so if its a big difference, il just have to take your word for it.

      I love the game to death but THAT was annoying. That and the super slippery and floaty controls.

    • Zonic505

      This is the single reason why I’m looking forward to replaying it on 3DS. Now let’s hope there’s some kind of new content added.

    • That’s what YOU think – the 3DS has a gyroscope!

  • Cameron Ward

    the game itself lends to a lot of 3D moments

  • Göran Isacson

    Curious. If I didn’t play the game on the Wii, do you think this will be a suitable replacement? I have wanted this game for a long time but never knew if it was a good idea to wait until the price got lowered or… well, this happened. Do you think I will be missing out on something if I don’t buy it for the Wii, or may I as well play it here?

    • I think you should buy it on Wii, IMHO little screen of 3ds won’t represent the whole epic and smoth graphic DCCR.

    • Eric Harris

      It will be a BETTER replacement. Wii version had lame forced motion controls like shaking the controller to bash the ground looking for secrets (instead of a simple down + A) and there were ALOT of secrets. So the whole level you’d be moving and stopping then shaking the #*@*# stupid controller. By THIS instead.

    • NimbusStev

      Definitely buy this instead. In the Wii version, you had to shake the controller to roll/run. There are many moments that require precise timing on your rolls. Seriously, you will feel like you have a broken wrist after you play this game.

      I don’t know who thought it was a good idea to waggle your remote to roll and NOT GIVE ANY ALTERNATE CONTROL OPTIONS, but let’s hope they rectify that mistake with the port.

  • Sergio Briceño

    Watched the trailer. And I must say I’m impressed. It looks fantastic.

    The only reason why I didn’t like the game very much the first time around was the Wii remote controls. Can’t wait to play it how it was meant to be played.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Donkey Kong Country 64 remake would have blown my mind…

  • Fango

    The original looked better…

  • SetzerGabbiani

    Sooooo…since we’re porting Wii games already, Wario Land: Shake it! should get a second chance…right?

  • Well, this is unexpected – though certainly not unwelcome. Hopefully there will be more Wii-to-3DS (or Gamecube-to-3DS) ports in the future?

  • Barrylocke89

    Shockingly, I’ve still yet to pick up the original DKCR. Whether or not I aim for this version instead will depend on how much new content, if any, is added to the game.

  • Shadowman

    I can’t stop watching the trailer. O__O

  • Eric Harris

    100% no doubt purchase on this one. I played just a BIT of DKCR on Wii, and I was really put off by the motion controls. (instead of a simple down + A for ground smash, you have to shake the wiimote = stupid). Now that the lame motion controls should be removed. I can finally look forward to actually playing this game.

    I normally don’t care about ports but since this one will remove the forced waggle of the Wii version then I approve.
