    Not that I don’t want to play this… but this is a huge letdown for everyone (like me) who’s been chomping at the bit to see a new Retro game.

    I can’t begin to describe how excited I am for this.

    I remember when everyone thought Retro was working on a new Metroid game. HAHA

  • This game looks awesome. I loved the original, so really looking forward to this.

    I thought Retro might have been doing an original project instead of this. They’ve been playing it too safe and I think they should be allowed to do more original things. Then again, they’re probably working on stuff behind the scenes that we don’t know about, so maybe this is just one of two projects in development.

    All I want is Retro to ruin another of my favorite franchises.

    It looks freaking awesome, too bad it isn’t a reimagination of DKC2 (like how DKCR was DKC’s). At least it has Dixie Kong.

    i am sure the game will be great i don’t want to hate but i was really hoping for retro to step up and give us something new

    Got Dixie- get Hype. That girl and her helicopter hair saved my ass SO MANY TIMES in DKC2 and 3, awesome that she’s back.
