I think they are doing a remake to compete with the Vita since Sony platforms are compatible with each other.

Nintendo did it wrong though.

The brighter colors look better on the Wii imo. The darker colors of the 3DS just do not seem right to me. The KONG letters just seem dead on the 3DS.

Saw this over on MPF. :P

But I really thought Retro would be developing this game, like they did with the Wii one.

not really interested in this or the Wii version. I personally miss King K Rool and the Kremling Crew but they vanished since Mario Super Sluggers back in 2008.

Intriguing price there. I dislike the box art as it is obviously the Wii Box art with"3D" added in the title. It honestly looks rushed to me because of it. They should of made a box art at least.

Quote from: European Press Release
    Go ape with the swingin king of the jungle! Donkey Kong and his simian sidekick Diddy Kong are back for more action-packed platforming antics in Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, an enhanced version of Wii adventure Donkey Kong Country Returns, only on Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL!

    Jump, race and roll your way across Donkey Kong Island on a quest to rescue DKs beloved banana hoard from the trouble-causing Tiki Tak Tribe. Stomp on enemies, grab banana bunches and ride rockets, rhinos and much more in classic 2D platforming gameplay, stuffed full of spectacular scenes and tricky traps. Use both characters special skills to overcome all kinds of obstacles and explore each stage to the full hop Diddy onto DKs shoulders and use his Barrel Jet to hover them both over large gaps, or roll to your hearts content and trample everything in your path.

    Keep em peeled for collectibles as you tear through the jungle, across beaches and beyond. Grab the letters that spell out K-O-N-G and nab puzzle pieces hidden in each stage to unlock extra content, like super-tough Trophy levels. Unlock and conquer every one of these special stages and a brand new surprise awaits!

    Take on the whole game together as the terrific twosome, DK and Diddy, by teaming up with a friend in Local Play. Pelt opponents with Diddys Peanut Popgun and hover using his Barrel Jet, or slam bad guys into submission with Donkey Kongs Ground Pound. The big guy can even do a Barrel Roll!

    You can play the adventure exactly as you remember it in Original mode, but if the chimpy challenge gets the better of you, help is at hand. New mode makes the going just a little easier, giving Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong three hearts each instead of the usual two, letting them Kong-a for longer! Spend your hard-earned Banana Coins on helpful items from Cranky Kongs shop, and pick up new items that help save you from falls, allow the Mine Cart and Rocket Barrel to take a second hit, and even let you use a DK Barrel whenever you like.

    Join Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong and the rest of the gang in a classic 2D platformer, now playable on-the-go!

    Discover brand new content created just for Nintendo 3DS

    Play the whole adventure with a nearby pal in Local Play!

I wasn't expecting this port to get more content, but it actually did. There's Easy Mode, which seems a bit easier now that you can take up to three hits instead of the usual two. Local Play is also supported, too. But sadly, no online co-op. Oh well. There's also going to be more surprises at the end, and even new items, too. Finally, there will be more content for you to discover.

Hmm, I'm still not sold on this game, so I might pass it up. I don't really see myself getting this game. If I do as a gift, then I guess I'll have it as a treat for the heck of it.

It sounds cool that they're adding new content to the game. Can't be all bad, right? Unfortunately, I'm still not too interested in the game my self. Do they have intentions on releasing DLC since its a platformer?

No, it doesn't look like it. There's no Nintendo Network logo on the box-art, at least according to Amazon.
