Donkey Kong makes his return on the Wii

30 Nov 2010

Donkey Kong is back with a new game, Donkey Kong Country Returns, arriving on 3 December.

Offering side-scrolling multiplayer gaming for Nintendo Wii owners, the game lets players team up with others to play side-by-side through the game, playing as Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong.

The co-operative two-player mode lets players work together to solve puzzles and complete challenges to reclaim the infamous gorilla’s banana stash.

Donkey Kong fans will see the reappearance of barrel cannons and mine carts, but new features will also be included.

The Wii Remote lets the player use motion controls to make Donkey Kong pound the ground, roll into enemies and blow air, while Diddy Kong can use a barrel jet for hovering and a peanut popgun to attack enemies.

The game also features a Time Attack mode, which challenges players to complete the stage as fast as possible.

Donkey Kong Country Returns is out for the Nintendo Wii on 3 December.
