Haters of the recent news can all go to bed because "they be Cranky".

Good to hear that it's not Wiimote mandatory, cause the Wiimote controls in Returns were a little bit clunky.

Although the annoucement yesterday was disappointing.

Still a day 1 buy game for me.

I love Nintendo, Sony & Microsoft - why? I am a true gamer.

Oh yeah I agree, I can't wait to play the game, even though I do think that level shown looked straight out the Wii version. I'm hoping in the final version we'll have really impressive graphics going on and maybe a few new game play ideas. Bouncing around on the stick does look a lot of fun.

I have to admit when I first heard about Cranky being playable the first thing that popped into my mind was using his cane like a pogo stick a la DuckTales.

@DestinyMan - Wait, it's been confirmed that all of the music is new? I read somewhere a while back that the music that played in the mine cart demo level sounded like a remix of a DKC3 song.

Over time I feel really bad for this game. Ever since the initial announcement people were adverse about about it because it wasn't the Metroid or Star Fox or F-Zero they were hoping for.

Now, though not directly related at the game, many are disappointed that this was shown last night instead of something else. Poor DK can't catch a break...

Come on Lanky! I bet the 5th player will be an end game unlockable, ala Rosalina.

Some more info about the game..

Snowmads are made up of penguins, owls, rabbits, sea lions, and walruses

  • Diddy Kong’s cartwheel attack useful for close attacks
  • Use Kong Pow with Diddy to turn all enemies on the screen into extra balloons
  • As previously mentioned, Dixie’s Kong Pow turns onscreen enemies into gold hearts
  • Dixie’s ponytail is like a propeller underwater for extra speed
  • Enemies will get tougher as you progress
  • Tucks (penguin-like enemies) start out with Donkey Kong being able to take them out by jumping on their heads or rolling into them
  • Later, they’ll have spears and helmets at their disposal, so you can only attack them from behind
  • Tucks will then come with double-sided spears and spiked helmets, so they must be stunned first before you can attack
  • 6 islands
  • 6-7 levels per island
  • Boss stage and a bonus level as well
  • Bonus level unlocks after collecting all KONG letters in each level
  • World 1: Lost Mangroves (rainforest, vine grabbing, zip-lining)
  • World 2: Autumn Heights (Bavarian-like mountain, mine carts, hot-air balloons, giant owls, jagged cliff faces)
  • World 3: Bright Savannah (tall grass, orange/brown colors, like an African safari, dodge brush fire and penguins with spears)
  • World 4: Sea Breeze Cove (blue harbors, sandy inlets, lots of swimming, dodge electric seaweed and manage air supply)
  • World 5: Juicy Jungle (tropical forest that produces a rare fruit, home to an elaborate processing plant, jump off jellies to reach new heights)
  • World 6: DK Island (Donkey Kong’s tree house has been frosted over, has homages to levels from Donkey Kong Country Returns)
  • Will always control Donkey Kong in single-player
  • Side characters add to Donkey Kong’s abilities
  • Subtle differences between the side characters
  • Can switch between side characters by breaking barrels in the levels
  • Icons on the barrels rotate slowly so that you can pick your partner
  • Offers challenging gameplay

Cool picture! I was hoping someone would make one with all four characters.

My money is still on Funky (or rather his plane) being playable in the way of horizontal shooting stages that take the Kongs from island to island. I know it's a stretch, but it sounds dang awesome. Those mosquito levels were great in Rayman Origins!

I will love you forever retro/david wise if you put in a stickerbrush sympthiony reference song in the game.

Was Mariobro4. No, I'm not taking off my backpack...it's important.

Personally, I'm kind of happy they aren't putting one in.

Crazy? Sure. But think about it.

They've got the original composer back for the game. The person who came up with the first Stickerbrust Symphony.

Much better to get him to make an all new soundtrack at the same level of quality as the originals rather than just remix older songs for fan service reasons.

Yeah, that's what I always wanted when I played the original DKC games. I'd always wonder, "Why isn't Scrooge McDuck in this game?"
