Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D adds easy mode, local co-op play and 'new content'

New, 11 comments

The Nintendo 3DS remake of Wii side-scrolling platformer Donkey Kong Country Returns will bring with it all-new content, including local wireless co-op play and an easier difficulty mode, according to a product description on Nintendo's UK website.

Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D will feature "brand new content created just for Nintendo 3DS," Nintendo says, including a "new surprise" for those who best the game's most difficult levels. For players who find the game too challenging, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D will offer an easier mode that grants DK and Diddy three hit points each, instead of the standard two.

Nintendo announced the stereoscopic 3D makeover of Retro Studios' Donkey Kong Country Returns in February. The 3DS port is in development at Monster Games.

Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D is slated for release on May 24 in North America and Europe.
