Donkey Kong Country Wii U Detailed

Donkey Kong Country Wii U Detailed

Donkey Kong Country has now being detailed by Nintendo during its minor E3 showing, giving us an insight into what the game will be like when released later this year. The official name is Donkey Kong Country: Topical Freeze.

There's a few new characters to play with, offering different abilities and you'll get a variety of different camera angles on show, making the game a little more cinematic and helping to beef up the traditional 2.5D offering that past games in the series have used exclusively.

Other Miiverse features will be included, to help socialise the game, as well as you might expect, gamepad interaction.

Satoru Iwata, Nintendo's president, who was presenting the E3 unveil, said that "You can even see Donkey Kong's fur flowing like this," showing some of the added graphical detail that we can expect from the game.

Unfortunately, as my colleague points out, we couldn't see it in the original video, because Nintendo only streamed at 240P, having not sorted out a better streaming option - again.
