    How long has it been since Retro Studio was teasing us with their, "we're working on a title that everyone wants us to do". I definately haven't seen anyone saying they wanted a sequel to DKC:R that badly (although I did enjoy the Wii version).

    Yeah... not sure this was the title I would have referred to. I'll be getting this at some point, but it's not at the top of my priority list.

    I love DKC but if this is the only thing Retro Studio's is up to I'll be pretty disappointed.

    I read somewhere it has the same controls as the Wii game, but possibly tablet controls too - which would have no motion.
    Hoping they make Classic Controller compatible too (or a hack is released by the time its out - same as the Wii version)

    Are Diddy or Dixie playable in 1player mode? And who will be the forth playable character??! Kiddy, Tiny, Lanky, Chunky - but I'm betting Funky Kong....

    ERROR!
    DAVID WISE! OMG! HOLY SHIT! I'm still in a state of shock from hearing that yesterday, unbelievable.
    Glad they went with DK first instead of Metroid. Retro wanted to continue with Donkey Kong Country, in the end you'll get a much better game if they do something they really want to do. The decision was entirely up to them, once they feel like doing Metroid again it'll result in a much better title than it would have now. Even more so if you consider that they'll have more knowledge of the hardware by that time.

    Was initially disappointed that Retro was making this instead of Metroid but watching the Cannon Canyon gameplay, it actually looks really really good.



    The music really does make it all that much better. <3 David Wise.

    That would have been me. I absolutely fucking loved Donkey Kong Country Returns, so this news is easily the best thing I've heard from E3. :bow:

    I can certainly understand metroid fans aren't that happy, but...sorry. I can only hope for these guys they'll get to work on that after this game is released. :)

    I agree with you, but at the same time, it's so hard to be patient, and we haven't gotten a quality Metroid game since 2007... :(
