I love the original Donkey Kong Country games, I love Donkey Kong Country: Returns, the perfect sequel that was made by Retro Studios, the geniuses who also gave us the Metroid: Prime trilogy (another loved favorite of mine, but that is a different story).

DKC:R is a really good game because it has amazing gameplay. It brought back the hard fun of old video games, it was very atmospheric, the music and background just blended together with the stages and it had great level design.

Now, with the Wii U and Reggie saying that Retro Studios are working on an unannounced major release I think there is a good chance for some more Donkey Kong Country, except that this time in HD, all my hopes and dreams.

I would really like them to bring the option to switch between Donkey and Diddy.
Instead of just Donkey with Diddy on his back, they should make the two equally playable, but with asymmetric gameplay.
If we are still talking about characters, they could bring back Dixie and Kiddy for some 4 people multiplayer (after trying out NSMB.W with friends, I understand why Nintendo wants to put so much multiplayer options, four people with friends is crazy fun).
Maybe even make both of them available in single player, like from each barrel you get a random Kong but you can only have one of the bigger ones (Donkey and Kiddy), and one of the smaller ones (Diddy and Dixie).
Each character should be little bit unique but still similar enough so that it isn't unfair (to sum it up).

About the levels, I will leave it to them except about Kremwood Forest and Mekanos (two worlds from DKC3), those two were my favorite and I really would like to see some similar worlds.

What are your ideas? I know I am not the only one who would go bananas (hehe) for a DKC:R sequel!

I like to see a sequel on the Wii U, with the same athmosphere and photo-realistic-ish graphics as on the SNES.

How about Donkey Kong Country 2 Returns? It could feature the return of Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong. Knowing how much of a great job Kenji Yamamoto did with the DKCR soundtrack, I'd like to hear him do remixes of Stickerbrush Symphony, Disco Train, and Forest Interlude.

Yup, Donkey Kong Country 2: Returns.
Now when I think about it, I want the same connection DKC:R had with DKC, except with DKC:R sequel and DKC 2.

If there is a 4-player mode, I think each player should get to pick their own character, but have more than four characters to choose from, so everyone has a choice. Donkey, Diddy and Dixie are the only three I want for sure. And also bring back team mode, so you can have two separate teams taking turns after each level or death. You could have all four players on one team, two on each team, or 1 vs 3.

More open levels, similar to the SNES games. Be able to switch between characters in 1-player mode, instead of always being Donkey Kong. More animal buddies, possibly some returning (Winky, Espresso, Enguarde) and some new ones. Bring back the water levels. Bring back K. Rool.

Imagine Tiki Tong and King K. Rool meeting up and teaming up.

Call it Donkey Kong Country 4 and have it as a proper sequel to Donkey Kong Country 3, not a homage to the first DKC game like Returns was. Keep the quality of the graphics the same, thats okay, HD if possible.

Bring back Dixie, Kiddy, Tiny, Lanky and Chunky as playable characters, each with their own special moves and abilities. You would choose two of the seven to play as in each stage, only being able to change characters on the map screen. Each character would be able to make it to the end of the stage but each stage would be designed to be tough or easy depending on which combination of characters you choose. However, to properly complete each stage, you have to take all seven characters to the end of that stage in any combination.

And yes, bring back K.Rool and the Kremlins. Bring back the other Kongs and bears too as characters to meet along the way. And perhaps the characters from Diddy Kong Racing (except Banjo and Conker) in some way too. Perhaps you have to rescue Tiptup, Pipsy and the others from the bosses of each world.

Isn't Tiptup a Rare character though? He was in Banjo-Kazooie.

I would be happy with just remixes of the music from Donkey Kong Country 2. A whole game plus the remixes would be an insta buy :-D

Call it 'The Death of Donkey' and have it play just like Limbo.

Only because every platformer needs to play like Limbo.

As long as they get rid of that "waggle to roll" from Returns (which they should do as the Wii U pad has the full complement of buttons). Clunky and unintuitive to perform and rather annoying on the occasions where you would roll off a ledge to your death just from slightly moving the controller...

I have to catch up on a bunch of PC games first though. Damn Steam sales...
@WhiteKnight
Limbo's awesome, but it's sort of a one-trick pony in a way. It works so well because it's only 2 hours long.

Imagine the outrage from Ninty fans if it went the way of limbo.

But yes it should happen.
