E3 2010: Donkey Kong Country Returns Announced

Nintendo sure seemed in a nostalgic mood as they kept resurrecting older and not to mention highly beloved franchises at their E3 press conference. After GoldenEye enjoyed a much needed revival, Donkey Kong took center stage in an all new game called Donkey Kong Country Returns.

Controlled by a group of evil Tikis, the animals in Donkey Kong Island have raided Donkey Kong’s Banana Hoard and stolen his stash of bananas – and he understandably wants them back. Retro Studios brings Donkey Kong back in a new side-scrolling adventure with familiar characters and new levels that reignite the passion players had for the Super NES original.

The game is expected this Fall exclusively for the Wii.
