A New DKC Game by Playtonic

Postby DudeSean » Thu May 14, 2015 12:13 am

If Nintendo were to approach Playtonic to make a new DKC game for them, should they do it?


I think so.


After Yooka-Laylee, of course.

I kind of think no.

I played through Donkey Kong Country Returns on the Wii a couple years ago, and I think Retro did a fantastic job. I don't have the appropriate hardware yet, but I'm looking forward to when I finally get a chance to play Tropical Freeze as well.

Don't get me wrong: if this did happen, I would be excited and I would definitely buy it. However, I think Retro Studios has a good handle on the series and I'd like to see Playtonic build their own franchises as they do new things.

(If time and human resources were not factors, I would say yes.)

Although there ARE some things I would change like having the characters be controlled seperate and not ride on DKs back and also keep K.Rool and Kremlins as the villains... I think retro have done a pretty good job and I don't think playtonic need to butt in.

I don't think Playtonic should make a new 2D DKC game, as I think Retro is doing just fine. I do think though that if Playtonic is succesful, and they have the chance, they could make an official DK game in the style of 64 or even maybe a new Diddy Kong Racing. Conker and DK could be replaced Yooka and another Playtonic character, instead of just Dixie and Tiny like the DS version. Plus, in a 64 follow up, King K Rool can make a huge comeback as a villain.

To be fair I would like a DK64 sequel rather than another DKCR. Loved those characters, it's a shame they were only used once. I think Nintendo don't like using characters they didn't create.

I like/love all games:
DKC2 > DKC3 > DKC > DKCR > DKCTF.
Both DKCR & DKCTF feel a little bland, even in comparison to DKC.
DKC2 was just perfect and 1 of the best games I ever played and I still REALLY love it.
Every world feels different in DKC2 and that's something that both DKCR & DKCTC definitely miss.

So Rare DKC games > Retro DKC games.

Let Playtonic make a DKC4 and I will guarantee you that it will blow away DKCR & DKCTF.

P.s.: I like both DKCR & DKCTF, but just not as much as de Rare series of DKC.
