Animal Antics from DKC2 still gives me trouble even today. DKC2 and Returns are the hardest imo.

I’m not sure if this is because of country differences, but am I supposed to see pictures of it?
No. It seems like this in all regions.

I have a pretty good feeling about DK this year. This calendar makes me about 70% sure we're getting an announcement about one soon. I wish I saved the page, but I remember someone by the name of EAD Ninja from Resetera also claiming Nintendo EPD was working on something from the "Mario Universe." It could be DK, or it could be something else. It's possible a team at Nintendo took on the mantle once they heard Retro was working on something else. SMO showed there are DKC fans at the big N, probably from young developers who grew up with DKC. Fingers crossed.

I think it would be neat to see a 3D Donkey Kong platformer that does more straightforward "point A to point B" levels like the 2D games.

I've been playing Sonic Adventure 2 lately and I know that's a controversial game nowadays, but I still admire the way it can do straightforward 3D platforming levels that don't feel narrow and linear like Crash Bandicoot, or generic obstacle courses like the Super Mario 3D games. I think having a Donkey Kong game that feels like the classic platformers but in 3D could be very interesting if it's done right.

I'm really hoping Nintendo's in house team will take a stab at the next 3D Donkey Kong game. They made 3D World and Odyssey and we all know Mario sells but I think if they put their minds to a DK game, they could truly make something special. Some of the cappy transformations reminded me of the animal buddies so much.

Mine is:

  1. DKC Returns
  2. Tropical Freeze
  3. DKC2
  4. DKC1
  5. DKC3
It could be that I've played DKC2 more than any other game except maybe Banjo-Kazooie, but I think it's very fair. Absolutely nothing in the DK series is harder than Perilous Path in hard mode on the Wii (or classic mode on 3DS).
Agreed with that order. But for me TF is almost as hard as DKCR is. DKC3 is the easiest by a huge margin

I would love EAD Tokyo to work on DK again EXCEPT this time keep all the characters we love like Diddy, Dixie, Funky, and K.Rool. Not toss them aside as "they weren't fresh enough" like Koizumi did with Jungle Beat. Luckily it seems like Koizumi learned his lesson with all the New Donk City references he threw into Odyssey.

If they ever make another 3D DK, I think Wario World is the example to follow.

One crazy thing about DKC3 is that the bonus rooms are much harder than the actual levels. The game is a cakewalk if all you want to do is get to the end, but completing it takes a lot more work. Still the easiest overall, though.

It's my understanding that the "Not fresh enough!" thing was a mistranslation anyway. Remember that at the time, Nintendo Power had a huge vendetta against Rare and never missed a chance to diss the DKC series.

Dude a spiritual successor to DK64 but it being more like Wario World where the levels are smaller and more spread out would be amazing! I would buy that in a heartbeat. I still want a Wario World 2, are you listening Nintendo and Treasure?!

They're not likely to do this (and the wait for would be interminable), but it would be remarkable if they released Dixie as a fighter in November to commemorate the 25th anniversary of DKC2.

Granted this is an expectation from the same company that basically did nothing for DKC's 25th anniversary, but a person can dream.
They could do this for the 25th anniversary for DKC3 since Dixie was the star in that game. But them doing it for DKC2 is more likely due to how much more popular and iconic that game is. And I agree, it's very unlikely they will deliver Dixie in Smash to us as a present for DKC2 or 3's 25th anniversary.

I'd settle for a Dixie Kong amiibo as well as Cranky, Funky, Rambi, Squawks, and Enguarde ones as well. So basically a DKC amiibo line for DKC2's 25th anniversary.

Wave 5 of Donkey Kong Racing

Dixie makes her appearance!
Kudgel
Karate Kong
Timber




Look at that, your Donkey Kong Racing roster is finally on topic!

That's a great pose for Dixie. She looks super cute. Timber's new outfit looks really cool too! I like it better than his old outfit, naked with a hat.
It's always so nice to see these updates. I'll post it tomorrow!!

Thanks! Lol I wanted to wait a couple waves before I did Dixie to make sure I got her right! And I guess Timber took up train conducting in his absence. I was thinking about making a logo for that, but I didn't come up with a name yet. Anyone have any ideas, I'm open to them!

Hey Nintendo, if you're running low on ideas, I know a certain female simian that would be a great fit for your cr**py gacha game!



Seriously, I don't even care that much about Dr. Mario World or Mario Kart Tour on the account that their awful, but it just depresses me that Dixie can't even get into the mobile games where they're literally adding everyone and their mother (or fire alt), especially when Diddy is in both of them. Let alone Rool, the other Kongs, Warioware characters, RPG characters, Subcon characters, etc.

Agreed. More Kongs&Krocs please
