Even though Donkey Kong Country Returns is one of my favorite 2D platformers and heck, games ever, I don't think i'll be picking this version up. It just seems like a better fit on the big screen to me, and from the videos i've seen, the lighting looks a little bit off compared to the original version.

Is anyone else trying to play this on an ordinary 3DS? (not XL)
I'm finding that it's so small it makes my eyes sleepy and gives me a headache, so basically, it's unplayable.

I've got an ordinary 3DS and I'm not finding it anywhere near unplayable...I actually enjoy it more than I did the Wii version. But diff'rent strokes...

i have to wait a week to get this game. I can`t wait to play it though. I`m buying a physical copy so I can share it with my son. He loves platformers.

Want: Mario Party Top 100, Atlus games, Psychic Spectres for the 3DS. For the Switch Kirby Star Allies, Yoshi and many others.

Finished the Alola Dex.
Now playing Stories, Crystal and Ultra Sun.

I have decided to skip this version of the game. I have and beat the game on Wii and I guess the 3D effect and extra levels aren't enough for me to do a $35 double dip.

The frame-rate is somewhat noticeable, but it doesn't bother me at all, as the game still runs very smoothly. The 3D is mind-blowing at times and brings the game world to life. It is hard to believe this was originally a Wii title, as it almost seems like it was designed with stereoscopic 3D in mind. The controls are very responsive, and on original mode the challenge is refreshing. I'm not sure yet, but this has the potential to be one of the best platformers on the system.

@OldMan-Tech Thanks for recommending this, dude. And I can definitely see the resemblance to Rayman Origins.

@Ralizah You are quite welcome but don't go and beat it before your trip now! There is a good deal of content on offer though.

Ps: That still doesn't let you off the hook from picking up Luigi's Mansion: DM though

This game is surprisingly difficult. I'm not playing on New Mode because wanted a challenge.. and well. xD To ace the first world one level in particular ate 30 lives!!

I love it though, it is nice to have a difficult platformer for a change. Some of the recent Mario games have been insanely easy. Mario 3D Land, I'm looking at you.

Sure is. I wished they'd do away with the lives in this as a game over just resets the checkpoint. It seems redundant.

So would you guys recommend this game for someone who never played the Wii or SNES games?? I could use a nice platformer to play and this title looks awesome. Although I might still have to wait a bit as Animal Crossing is almost here at long last...

@Neo-GeoFan Yes I highly recommend it. This if you ask me is the new direction in 2d platforms. Mario needs to go away or really change up its formula because they have become boring imo!

Yeah, I've already gone and beaten the first two worlds (all levels, including the secret ones, completed)! The main game won't last me too long. Good thing there are a lot of collectables.

I need to pick that one up once there's a lull in the release schedule for the 3DS. Although, that might not come until next year! The big releases have been pretty constant this year, and it'll probably only increase as Christmas nears.

No, only people who have previously played this on the Wii should get this.

I'd definitely recommend it. The Wii version was a fantastic 2D platformer, and this is pretty much the exact same game as that (with only a few additions). If you like 2D platformers in general, you'll love Donkey Kong Country Returns.

Wasn't there a ''surprise'' in this game as Nintendo said? There's a new mode with new items and 8 new stages but there was also a ''surprise''
Does someone know what the surprise IS??

This is coming from the company that labelled the golden Mario statue in NSMB2 as a "surprise." I wouldn't get my hopes up.

I've played the game some more now and I'm not having the problems I had yesterday so much... it may just have been that I had a headache anyway and focusing on small, fast moving things on the screen made it worse.
I still think the game is probably better on 3DS XL but I'm having fun with it now anyway.

Just beat the main portion of the game on my XL, and I am confident this games was always just meant for the 3DS. It works perfectly.
