  • Retro Studios faithfully restores everything that made the original series great, from barrel cannons to mine carts, and then builds on those elements with stunning graphics and new layers of depth to the world and game play. The game offers the traditional side-scrolling experience everyone loved, but with levels created in fully rendered 3-D environments
  • Diddy Kong™ joins the quest. With his trusty backpack, he can produce a jet pack or Peanut Pop Guns to give Donkey Kong more abilities
  • For the first time ever, the franchise features the ability for two people to play together at the same time – one as Donkey Kong, one as Diddy Kong. Players can navigate the levels separately or as one unit. Diddy Kong can ride on Donkey Kong’s back and hop off whenever he pleases, allowing novice players to ride on Donkey Kong’s back through more challenging areas of the game
  • Hidden items, puzzle pieces and other surprises are found all through the jungle. Spell out K-O-N-G by the end of each level to earn an extra bonus
  • Motion controls give players a real feeling of control. Players move Donkey Kong using the Control Stick on the Nunchuk™ controller and can shake the Wii Remote™ controller to make Donkey Kong slap the ground
  • Vibrant colors, beautiful graphics and fun characters draw players in. Even people who have never played a Donkey Kong game before can pick up a controller and start collecting loads of bananas
  • Every level offers new fun and new challenges. Sometimes Donkey Kong is running through the jungle, sometimes his action takes place on a tropical beach and other times he must become a master of timing as he jumps chasms in a mine cart


Controlled by a group of evil Tikis, the animals in Donkey Kong Island have raided Donkey Kong’s Banana Hoard and stolen his stash of bananas – and he understandably wants them back. Retro Studios brings Donkey Kong™ back in a new side-scrolling adventure with familiar characters and new levels that reignite the passion players had for the Super NES™ original.

Nostalgia-free review
I was never a fan of the SNES originals but this one won me over within an hour of gameplay. 'Nuff said. =D

I honestly believe DKCR is way more fun than Rayman Origins and Kirby's Epic Yarn put together simply because things like "old-school" and "hardcore" are written all over it. Its challenging and rock-solid, RAW gameplay will keep you on your toes the whole time and you'll need complete focus to get past some of its more intense moments. Fail to understand that and you'll run out of lives before you know it.

I still like Kirby's Epic Yarn more but that's just the fluffy pink fanboy in me talking. ;) The honest gamers will tell you DKCR is THE platformer for true fans of the genre. I usually don't like playing with a sideways-held remote but this game has yet to give me trouble. The commands that require shaking the remote add nothing to the table but they're not that much of an annoyance either.

Guaranteed, this game will test as well as surprise you until you grow your "Big Gamer" hands... Just don't monkey around with it too much unless you want to bruise like a banana! =P

One of the best platformer ever
Great revival of this franchise!

Very challenging to finish it 100% Who said platformer are for kids, this game require some skills and we like it.
Controls are perfect, graphics are nice and musics are awesome!
A must buy.
