    Changing the control in Jungle Beat, even if the Wii is very suited, means fail in my book. Part of the whole reason Jungle Beat was fun was because of the controls.

    Alright, this sounds good! I reaaly want this game, and the Wii version seems to be shaping up nicely.

    I do hope that it will be possible to use the GC Bongo's. This control scheme seems alright, but for the people with Bongos it should have Bongo support.

    The Wii is great, now I can finally play Donkey Kong Jungle Beat with super innovative nes-style controls, instead of the dull bongo's with which we play all everyday games!

    I'd like to see the new levels though, so I'll probably be downloading it, not gonna pay for a worse version of one I already own.

    Behind you! I know you looked!
    Yeah, agreed, I'm still holding onto my bongos until the day I get to use them again. I only ever played Donkey Konga with them, so Jungle Beat and Donkey Konga 2 & 3 are still waiting [​IMG].

    Do you have a modded Wii? You should really hunt down a backup of Jungle Beat. One of the most under-rated games out there. This game was designed for bongos first, and it plays great. Really fun when you can get huge combos going. Boss battles are fun too. I really doubt they will keep bongo support in the "wiimake". They didn't even keep bongo support for DK barrel blast, and that was designed for the GC with bongo controllers from the start. Face it - the bongos are dead. GameStop had a clearance last year where you could buy DK Jungle Beat + an extra bongo controller for $10 - and they had a tough time selling them.
