Well, I know what the DKC2 music remixes are. I won't say any names, but one is what everyone wants to hear and the other isn't as famous, but is still a cool, intense track. I was hoping for Forest Interlude, but no biggie.

Most wanted Smash Bros. newcomers
1. King K. Rool
2. Mii
3. Takamaru
4. Kat & Ana
Little Mac was on the list, but he's been confirmed.

Not to rain on your parade or anything, but I think Destinyman posted an image of that earlier in this thread.

Just read ONMs review of DKCTF, they gave it 86 out of 100 so off to a good start even if to me it sounded like a 90+ to me.

What did they say were the negative aspects?

Sorry for taking so long to reply wasn't home all day yesterday, here is their verdict section:
+Wonderfully touchy-feely style
+Beautiful to look at, better to listen to
-Old ideas feel like a safety blanket
conclusion: "Retro's starting to pull the same trick it managed for Metroid-Tropical Freeze draws on decades-old ideas and punches them into excellent new shapes."

Isn't that what they gave NSMBU as well? :/ i think they gave returns 92/100 maybe?

Yep NSMBU also got an 86% and DKCR got 91% I think.
edit: DKCR indeed got 91%.

Why would there be? You can choose to just not use it.

I'm going to use it to stack up on banana coins though.

5 reasons way I'm not getting Tropical Freeze:
1 - Putting my money on Indie games strongly supporting Wii U
2 - Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy NA release
3 - No reason for using the Gamepad at all
4 - Retro is better than this / more risk on Metroid Prime sequels than this
5 - I don't see a challenge in this

Out of curiosity how would you use the game-pad in a 2d platformer that didn't feel gimicky? Other than that i agree with your points, i too would rather a new prime game than this. But hey this sells better and is almost a perfect platformer, i love me some DK country

Woop Dkctf soon :)

A challenge? The last one was perfectly challenging.

1. This game is strongly supporting the Wii U, more so than multiple indies. As of right now, it's been one of the best sellers on Amazon.
2. K.
3. I understand that you would like this here, but why force something in if it's not necessary to fully enjoy the game?
4. They're better than this? Maybe, I guess? I haven't played this game but if it's anywhere near as good as DKCR then I have to disagree. It's not like they aren't working on another game as we speak.
5. Have you played Donkey Kong Country Returns? I really like hard games and that game had some good challenges in it dude. Especially the levels you unlock when you get the KONG letters. It's a great game. I expect no less from this game. Retro is amazing at what they do, you pretty much said it yourself.

Note: I only played DKCR without the lame nun-chuk skake to roll mechanic (3DS Version). I thought it was a great game and one of the best platformers I had played in a while. Much better than any of the 2D Mario games and certain levels had me trying over and over to beat them. It's challenging. This is coming from someone who likes really hard games. If you like Retro, I don't know why you wouldn't at least give this a shot.

I can't tell if you're trying to get people to convince you to buy the game or not.

@SkywardL: Honestly, there's not much you can do with the GamePad in a 2D platformer, and Wii U has been getting a lot of 2D platformers lately. As for Metroid; I expected Retro to work on one as well, but I personally prefer DK anyway and Retro will probably return to Metroid next. And this game is going to be very challenging. The reason why there's so many items and Kong Pow is because of the intense difficulty this game is certain to have.

Not at all.

It's going to be very challenging if the first one is anything to go by.

I think you're just being silly.

3 - Why does a 2D platformer need to use the gamepad apart from off-screen play.
4 - A more valid point would be Retro making an original ip not making a 4th Metroid Prime game.
5 - The DKC series is way more challenging the the Prime series and has more creativity per game.

Edit: I honestly think you're only here to annoy and troll people.
