Perhaps the fourth playable character will take DK's place and have Diddy and Dixie ride him?

Or maybe if K Rool is said playable character, he's unlocked for Mirror Mode (and hence doesn't have anyone ride him, giving him just two or three health total). That could work.

If it was Cranky Kong, maybe he could smack enemies with his cane while hitching a ride on Donkey Kong's back. That would be funny!

But this mysterious fourth playable character could be anything. It could be a returning Kong like Cranky or Kiddy or a completely new character like a new Kong or something else completely. We don't know. That's why we're speculating!

The Gamexplain guys are right. This game would have been perfect with 3D with the cool 3d barrel areas. It honestly seems to have better 3D than most 3DS games amusingly enough.

Considering how the Donkey Kong Country series is known for having ports and remakes of every installment, I wouldn't be surprised if there is a 3D port within the next three years.

They'd just lose that minor detail. Like they did in the 3DS version of Returns.

Of course, the real question is whether it could handle a version of Tropical Freeze in general. After all, this game makes use of all the Wii U's tech power and is packed to the brim with detail. Can the 3DS even handle it?

They would have to considerable scale back the visuals to accommodate the 3DS if they did decide to do a port. The 3DS remake of DKCR looks pretty similar to the Wii version, but part of that is just due to being on a smaller screen. It would also be pretty hard to get the game to run at 60 frames, so they'd most likely stick with 30 again. Overall, I don't see a port of Tropical Freeze coming to the 3DS. It's just not powerful enough to handle the game without making sacrifices, and if you have to make the game worse to put it on the 3DS, why not make a brand new Donkey Kong game for it instead?

I cannot wait for this game!! I was a huge fan of the dkc snes titles and am loving how retro are keeping true to the design style set by rare. This game is the reason why I brought a wii u last night.

That's certainly possible! And cool!

By the way: The 3D barrel sections remind me of the ones in DK64! One of the few things Rareware did right in that title!

After the ViKing gets sent flying away at the end of the game, he should end up in shore where he gets brought to the king, who is actually King K. Rool who's joined by the Tiki dude in the same room. And they'll all start laughing evilly teasing a trio of villains for DKC6

And yes, 3 villains will work if it's retro working on it, unlike Speeder-man 3

Im excited for this title. Sure, its a safe move on Retro Studio's part but the end result will still make for an amazing game. :)

I hope the villain in this game, the Viking leader, is cooler than Tiki Tong. I imagine it wouldn't be hard to beat an Andross knock-off.

True, but maybe in a giant plot twist or something.... THE TIKI'S are responsible. It will be like a "revenge and better than the last time" theme. :3

Well the GBA ports of Donkey Kong Country 1-3 lost a lot of the visual details that the SNES originals had, so maybe a 3DS port of Tropical Freeze isn't as unlikely as we think.

I really want to be able to play as Diddy or Dixie without Donkey. I was very disappointed that the only way I could play as Diddy in DKCR was to con someone else into playing as DK. You didn't have to do that with the snes games, and those are getting close to two decades old.

I could see Retro throwing K. Rool in at the end, wearing some sort of viking helmet to fit in with the theme. He always dressed up at the end of DKC 1, 2 and 3. And it would answer fans' demand for K. Rool to return. Then it might feel like the ending of Starfox Adventures, though...
