Nintendo has announced that Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D will be swinging its way onto the Nintendo 3DS in Europe and North America on May 24. Donkey Kong Country Returns was developed by Retro Studios and took the Wii by storm back in 2010.
This rebirth on the 3DS is thanks to the development team at Monster Games, who were also behind Pilotwings Resort on the 3DS. The game is being “rebuilt from the ground up” for the 3DS, and has said by some to feel like it was made for the Nintendo 3DS all along.
Gamers are all too quick to complain when games are delayed, like Pandora’s Tower in North America recently, however, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D was initially slated for a “summer 2013” window, so we should be thankful for this earlier than expected release.
