Bad, bad decision delaying it. Wii U needs all the games it can get this Christmas to push the likes of the Xbox One and PS4 out the limelight. And while 3D World and Sonic Lost World do look good, I'm not sure that these alone will be enough to get people to forget about Microsoft and Sony's systems and their launch games.

And out of those, only 3D World is for the 'hardcore' gamers. The rest are basically for grandma and co, which is not the audience Nintendo needs now and not the one likely to be need swaying away from the Xbox One and PS4.

Let's be honest even Mario 3D world wouldn't sway those people.

I have no problem with the delay. To many games out now and the next few months that I will be playing.

I am ok with the delay but from a business stand-point i think it would have been smarter to delay 3D World. Wii U already has a Mario Title and Donkey Kong is more "hard-core" which would be good for competition. If the delay was really to finish the game and not to have something early 2014 because Mario Kart is going to be delayed (possible reason for Donkey Kong delay, no proof) then I would rather have a great game in February than a OK game in December.

EDIT: Plus I still have plenty of games to buy (Pikmin 3, Wind Waker HD, Rayman Legends, New Super Mario Bros. U)

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.
I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...

If there's one game the WiiU does not need at this moment is another 2D platformer and this is coming from a platformer fan. I would love to hear some audio clips from David Wise's new tracks though.

yeah DKC:Tropical Freeze isn't as big a seller as HD Zelda and HD Wii Sports and Mario and Sonic and Mario & Sonic. For a new console at least. One last chance to help the 3rd parties too. Wouldn't have done too much, and it's way smarter for Nintendo to spread releases out instead of having nothing before the next Mario Kart.

Also I want to get some indies and need money for that. Regardless though, I'm not getting another first party Nintendo game this year, outside of that new IP that just came out. I'm so proud of myself.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 better be happening! In the meanwhile though, here's a fun little Let's Play of the original. Think you'll like the game if you like Zelda!

Although there's no denying that a brand new HD Zelda game would sell a ton of Wii Us.

Yeah......No. The Zelda brand even on aport is still stronger than the Donkey Kong Brand and Zelda is bundled meaning its going to be in a good chunk of systems sold this holiday. Even the Wii Game wasn't a system seller as much as it was a seller on a bunch of systems.

Respectfully agree. I don't think the U is in good enough straights to warrant a delay.

yeah, they should just release all these games around the holiday season, that worked so well last time

oh wait, it was a complete disaster that lead to Wii U sales falling faster than Sonic could ever run

Except Nintendo is competing with Microsoft and Sony's new systems. And some times of year are way more important than other ones. The Christmas season is one of these.

Edit: Also, Wind Waker HD is a remake. Not a new game. Remakes NEVER sell on par with or better than the originals in gaming. Not even Ocarina of Time 3D did. It'll sell maybe two to three million copies at best, even with a bundle. Compared to potentially many more for Donkey Kong. Which as I'll point out, is actually a bigger selling series than Zelda on average. Or at least, the biggest Donkey Kong games outsold the biggest Zelda ones by a fair margin, and these were comparing NEW games.

"A delayed game is eventually good. A bad game is bad forever." - Shigeru Miyamoto

If the other delayed games like Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Kid Icarus Uprising, and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon are any indication, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze will be fantastic. We've seen how much better Super Mario 3D World is now compared to when it was announced at E3. Imagine how much better Tropical Freeze is going to look the second time.

Probably a smart move considering the PS4/XBONE coming out arund the same time.
