Anyone who has played the Wii version of Donkey Kong Country Returns has experienced it at one point or another; whether you went to grab a snack, needed to stop for a bathroom break, or were just frustrated with the game, you returned to discover Donkey Kong passing the time on his DS, playing Miyamoto knows what.

Fast-forward to 2013, where
Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D is set to arrive in stores on May 24th. However, in order to facilitate the limitations of the 3DS — and possibly to fit in the Easy Mode and a new world — it would appear that Nintendo has removed idle animations from the game. Sorry Donkey, looks like you’ll have to find a new hobby.

It’s really quite a shame; I was hoping to see DK playing his game on a 3DS, inside of a 3DS, inside of a 3DS…

Greetings Gamnesiacs! I'm Elijah Holt, a Associate Editor coming at you live from beautiful Alabama. My love for gaming started at an early age and has ingrained a love for two different gaming companies in my mind. On one side, my love of the Nintendo 64 and my countless hours spent perfecting the first few levels of Super Mario 64 (I was never good enough to get past those...maybe if they release it for the Wii U eShop someday...) resulted in my love for everything Nintendo; meanwhile, I also owned an original PlayStation, which has resulted in me currently owning a PS3 and PS4 for a few Sony exclusives and third-party titles. I'm a recent graduate of Auburn University, where I majored in Software Engineering. I currently work in DevOps as an Automation Engineer. I look forward to continuing to provide the finest content on the internet to loyal Gamnesia readers like you. Want to contact me? You can always shoot me an email at [email protected]
