Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D is hitting the 3DS!

Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D has been announced for 3DS with a Summer release date. The title is an enhanced update of the Wii game from 2010.

As you’d expect from a 3DS version of a last-gen console title, the game graphics have been upgraded to fully take advantage of the 3DS’ glasses-free, stereoscopic 3D effects, making the layers of background and foreground Jungle-filled levels pop off the screen!

Here is an actual 3DS screenshot of the game (the one below is a Wii screenshot, though they look identical).

It is unknown if the game will include any other enhancements or additions over the Wii version, but I’d expect that the game will at least include StreetPass play and is likely to include new challenge areas and new levels. We’ll just have to wait and see for more info!

You can imagine how the scenery pops in glasses-free stereoscopic 3D on 3DS!

You can see how the game looks in stereoscopic 3D by checking out a Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D trailer available to view now on the 3DS eShop.

Exciting news! Even though a lot of people complain about ports, I don’t mind ports one bit. Especially when they are greatly enhanced, remastered and improved over previous versions. I didn’t get to play the original Wii game, so DKCR3D is right up my alley!
