Putting aside the fact that I was hoping for something different from Retro, I'm actually pretty excited for this.
Donkey Kong Country Returns was the best 2D Platformer on the Wii by a mile and a half, and this looks sure to be excellent also.

WAIT WHAT? Seriously?!

Yep which just raised my hype to insane levels. (Nintendo really needs to start selling soundtracks)

At least Nintendo of America anyway. I know NOJ at least sells some.

I would have quite liked to have seen them maybe have a crack at a 3D Donkey Kong as it's been so long since DK64, but I suppose 2D is the safer bet.

Though to be honest, I would have preferred something completely new from them even more. I only recently played DKCR, so I don't have much of a hunger for this at the mo. Looks excellent though.

While I hate Funky Kong for what he did to Mario Kart Wii; it'd be nice if he or Tiny Kong was the third character. It might be Kiddy from DKC3 though; either way, I can't complain (though others will...).

Concidering that Retro Studios has lost quite a few of the essential talents behind Metroid and DKCR, I feel Retro has lost it's megatonic value.
That said, I'm sure this will be a great game and I'll be buying it! I'm just not expecting anything groundbreaking from Retro anymore, until they prove me wrong.

Considering how often Emily Rogers has been wrong and stupid before, the fact that even she has to point out this is a rumor makes me extremely doubt some of this.

I actually read this recently from elsewhere but just now read the comments and even then she says this isn't huge trouble. Relax.

From the Developer Direct:
1. There will be five islands Donkey Kong will explore on his way back to Donkey Kong Island in order to fight off the Vikings and their mysterious leader and win back the island.
2. Playable characters will include Diddy and Dixie, but there is a third character being kept secret for now.
3. Donkey Kong can throw some enemies and pull up things like Mario in Super Mario Bros. 2.

Hmm, wonder who the mysterious leader is... Hint, hint...

This game is gonna be awesome. And I don't think this is the only Wii U game Retro Studios is working on. Apparently, Retro was choosing between Donkey Kong and Metroid for their FIRST Wii U game. They could be making a 2nd title as we speak.

And Retro going with DK instead of Metroid makes commercial sense. I'm no developer, but Donkey Kong Cuuntry is probably faster and easier to make than Metroid Prime. Plus, I believe DKCR on Wii sold almost 5 million copies in its first 4 months.

Nah, I wish, but I've tried that before toward the end of DKCR and it didn't work out. It's probably going to be a big, intimidating polar bear or some other Arctic animal.

Tensuke didn't mention a "mysterious leader," but everyone knows those Vikings have some kind of higher-up.

Eh, you're probably right. But hey, a guy can dream...

I cannot wait for Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze i love the DKC games, can anyone tell me if the other DKC games will be releasing on the VC? Nintendo also needs to sell there systems so Donkey Kong Country was a very good choice.

Well, Retro has seen some extensive expansion, so there might be another game in development as well.

So, who do you think the secret playable character is? We've got DK, Diddy and Dixie Kong so far, so could Kiddy Kong be the final one? Or will it be some well known Kong like Funky Kong or the like?

Heck, I even saw someone suggest K Rool himself as a playable character, given that they're desperately trying to keep the final one secret and K Rool is probably the one possibility who they wouldn't want to announce immediately.

Funky Kong seems most likely to me. Kiddy is loathed by a lot of the fan community, but everybody loves Funky Kong. Funky like a monkey!

K. Rool would actually be pretty sweet. Since there are 5 islands to traverse, maybe one of them is the Kremlings' homeland, also occupied by the vikings.

It's highly doubtful, but it'd be fun.

I played this at Best Buy, here are my impressions:

I played this with nunchuck and wiimote since it was the only combo available and I think they fixed the rolling a bit as you don't lose momentum anymore and roll jumps feel really smooth. I was playing as Diddy and another guy was DK and we played through two levels (out 4) that were available to play. The first level has a nifty Jungle Hijinx remix by David Wise and the level is pretty long. You dive off a cliff side into a lake (yay swimming!) and run through scrapped battleships embedded in the rock side that collapse. The new puling mechanic is great and feels as smooth as SMB2 and gives new purpose to ground pounding. Blowing is gone, and there are no more weird wall collision things since the physics seem tighter. The game took a while to load since it's an E3 demo, but the game again runs really smooth and looks pretty great.

Just from those two levels I think they're going to top Returns.

$60 for another 2D platformer...no. Done with Nintendo consoles, I'll stick with the 3DS though.

Was hoping for DK64 Returns.
