E3 - Donkey Kong Country Returns on Nintendo Wii
This is one of the biggest surprises from Nintendo's presentation - Donkey Kong Country is back! It looks like we have this year's New Super Mario Bros. Retro Studios (of Metroid Prime fame) is responsible for the game, and they are determined to recapture the style of the Super Nintendo series. It looks terrific, slightly rough around the edges, but I'm sure a final coat of gloss paint will make everything perfect. That, and a cool red cover just like Super Mario Bros.
Nintendo is going to have a spectacular Christmas this year. Donkey Kong, Wii Party, NBA Jam, GoldenEye, Just Dance 2....very impressive indeed.
