I think it's time for a true sequel. I'm all in for it. Think about it; it's been 10 years since DK64 came out on the N64 and we have yet to see it be re-released on the Virtual Console. If they do make a sequel to DK64, I want it to be like the Rare games and feature collecting stuff. Like bring back in old stuff from the DKC trilogy like Multiplayer Co-Op and adding bonus barrels and a lost world like DKC2&3 had. I also think that the levels should be straightforward like the early Crash Bandicoot games. You should also have lives where you get a game over after zero lives. Anyone agree that Donkey Kong is overdue for a sequel?

I thought Donkey Kong Jungle Beat was like a sequel.

I hope it never gets a sequel, you sir have inspired me a new topic!!!

Hardcore, casual = marketing. The real divide is between arcade and narrative games.

No Rare almost killed the franchise with Donkey Kong 64.

Nintendo won't want to revisit that. So there's a zero percent chance of that ever happening.

I loved DK64, but a lot of people hated it, and to be honest I can see why. I was a huge fan of the DKC series and was guided by blind devotion. If a 3D DK game was made it wouldn't be a true sequel to DK64 because Rare's style wouldn't be evident, and for some that would be no bad thing.

Yes DK64 was awesome. If your definition of awesome is 'monotonous collect-em-up'. I have DK64 but generally spend more time playing the original arcade Donkey Kong you unlock rather than the actual adventure.

Hopefully there will be another 3D Donkey Kong game, the series deserves it. If Nintendo make it then we could have our first good 3D DK game.

A lot of people didn't think so.

Rare built up the franchise with the SNES games, but they failed to evolve the series.

That's why the highest selling game was on the SNES and after that it all went downhill, people started losing interest in the franchise.

Donkey Kong 64 actually lost Donkey Kong fans. That's why Nintendo won't make a sequel to Rare's game, because they don't want that failure again.

Donkey Kong 64 was good but I think it didn't sell very well.
