New Nintendo 3DS version of the classic Wii game features a New Mode and additional levels, all in stereoscopic 3D
Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, the second Donkey Kong game developed for Wii, is now available, Nintendo announced. Compared with Donkey Kong Country Returns, a New Mode has been added to the game. In New Mode, players have access to new items and gameplay features, including Donkey and Diddy Kong having three hearts each (instead of two in Original Mode), making things a little easier for those new to the franchise.
The helpful items in New Mode include portable DK Barrels, which players can use at any time to have access to Diddy Kong; Green Balloons, used to protect Donkey and Diddy Kong from falling off a cliff or ledge; and “Crash Guards”, which make players temporarily invincible in rocket barrel or mine cart areas. Fans can also play in Original Mode to experience the game as it was originally designed.
Also exclusive to Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D are eight challenging new levels located within the all-new ninth world, Cloud, which are unlocked after players complete the main game. Plus, for those looking to conquer Donkey Kong Island with a friend, two players that both own a copy of the game can also connect via local wireless to team up as Donkey and Diddy Kong for some barrel-blasting multiplayer action.
