Retro Studios have been in the bunker for quite sometime cooking up speculation on what their next project could possibly be. Rumors of a Donkey Kong reboot were circulating the internet recently until Nintendo laid down the bomb and unveiled Donkey Kong Country Returns at this E3. A 2D platformer based on the Donkey Kong Jungle Beat game.
Due in part to music composer David Wise's apt contributions to the series, Donkey Kong emerged from the post-Rare world with an penchant for rhythm and beat. DK's aptitude for platforming takes a back seat in this title as he exhibits his heretofore unknown talents for playing the motherfuking bongos.
