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.

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.

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.

My sister and I played the boss battle with the Viking sea lion at Best Buy today. The game is very detailed, even by Donkey Kong Country Returns standards. They really did put effort into Donkey Kong's fur, guys!

The boss battle itself was surprisingly long, and it was the first boss battle of the game at that. David Wise also made a cool new rock theme for the boss too.

Happy 35th anniversary, Donkey Kong!

I'm very pleased with the design if the new Viking characters! They definitely look like something Rare would've made. Happy to see they're not tearing away from Donkey Kong Country's original style.

While i'm always looking forward to what Donkey Kong and Metroid have to offer. I admit, i'm somewhat disappointed that Retro Studios haven't touched Metroid since Other M, and even since then, have touched on Donkey Kong 3 seperate times in a row. I know that they touched on Metroid 4 times in a row, but seeing as how Other M wasn't as strong as it could have been, you'd at least think that some resolution would come out of it by now. Oh well, there's always time, i'm still good with their Tropical Freeze choice overall.

Retro Studios only made Donkey Kong Country Returns, that's 1 time. The 3D version was adapted by Monster Games.
They developed 3 Metroid Prime games, they had no involvement with Other M.

This would only be their second go at the DK series, and I'm really glad they decided to make it. There's plenty of time for more games from Retro to show up on Wii U, maybe even a Star Fox or F-Zero game. We'll see.

I could totally see levels where you control Funky's plane and shoot down hordes of enemies - similar to the mosquito levels in Rayman Origins.

I've got to admit, watching those videos has made me very excited for this game, despite my initial disappointment.

I know this sounds expected probably but I wouldn't mind seeing Kiddy Kong again. Kind of missed the big guy.

@Dev Thanks for posting those videos, bro. Wouldn't have seen them otherwise.

The game looks good so far, gameplay seems very smooth. Might not buy it immediately, but if it lives up to the challenge of DKCR I'll definitely pick it up.

As for the secret character: It can't be Kiddie! See, this game (and the last one) where made so that you always have the supporting character on your back (if you play alone)! If you would have Kiddie all the time on your back, that would slow down the game drastically!

"I could totally see levels where you control Funky's plane and shoot down hordes of enemies - similar to the mosquito levels in Rayman Origins"

I could totally see that happening too! Maybe these levels come after the boss levels! As a means to get to the next island!

I think Donkey Kong travels through the five different islands using that rocket that he dropped down in at the beginning of the first trailer. How he got in that thing is still a mystery.
