Game Overview

Donkey Kong Country Returns is a side-scrolling platform game developed by Retro Studios and Monster Games (3DS) for the Wii and Nintendo 3DS. It is the series' first traditional home console installment since Donkey Kong Jungle Beat and is the fourth game in the Donkey Kong Country series.

The game's story focuses on a group of evil creatures, called Tikis, that arrive on Donkey Kong Island and hypnotize the island's animals to steal Donkey Kong's bananas. This forces him to retrieve the hoard with the help of his friend Diddy Kong.

Just beat this game recently, one of my
favorite platformers ever. I'm not a
fan of the Rare SNES games either.

Wow... I didn't think a million would
show for a remake not even 2 years old.

Million seller! DK is one of Nintendo's
strongest sagas, this game alone sold
7m+, hope Tropical Freeze sells well too

I guess there were either great sales or
adjustments, because this is only about
20,000 sales from a million!
