Game Profile

In this adventure, the Kongs must reclaim their island from the dastardly Vikings of the northern seas.

To do this, they need to set off on a journey around five different islands, plus the frozen Donkey Kong Island. This will be the first game in the series to be in HD, bringing glorious detail and expression to the world. Depending on the stage, you can swivel or move the camera around to view dynamic scenes while enjoying the rich gameplay.

Along with Diddy Kong, Dixie Kong returns as a main character, while Cranky Kong is playable for the first time! Your abilities change depending on which partner you bring along, opening up new choices and possibilities. There’s even a cooperative two-player mode, with each player controlling one of the characters and working together to progress through the game!

@donkeykong64 That will be tough to do! In my eyes Donkey Kong Country Returns is the best platformer I have ever played in my life right next to the original Super Mario Bros.

I love this rebirth of the platforming genre. This type of game represents the essence of what makes gaming fun!

Meh, the game is not bad, it is just that so much more could be done. You also need an really big display to enjoy this game, which is kinda sad.

Also I remember seals were also your friends from the original DKC2 game. When did they become your enemy??

The Youtube fanmade of frozen is probably the only thing that did this game justice. If somebody just made an "Frozen mod" it would have been much better.

"K.Rool and the Kremlings" now their is an game I could bite into
