Possible hope?
« on: March 09, 2013, 09:32:00 PM »

MARCH 9TH, 2013
Monster Games is working on Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D

Donkey Kong Country Returns is being ported to the 3DS, and it turns out that Monster Games is the developer working on the project. And to clarify, these are the developers who worked on Excite Trucks for the Wii, and Pilotwings Resort for the 3DS.

Since there were rumours about them working on a Wii U title though, I wonder how this remake fits in there. Do they just have a tiny team working on it? Or perhaps most of the work on the Wii U title has wrapped up? Or maybe that title never existed in the first place? Im sure well have our answers once E3 arrives. That is still three months away though.

But at least we know the team is in capable hands (and that Retro is free to work on something original).

Thought this was interesting and I am always up for speculation of a new Excite game. :p

If anything, I'd say it's the opposite.

Everybody new Monster Games was doing something, but they didn't know what.  Most assumed they were working on a new game of some sort, but that's just because obviously they're not doing nothing.

However, now we know what they're doing: porting Donkey Kong Country Returns to the 3DS.

The thing to remember about Monster Games is: they're actually a pretty small development studio, unless things have changed.  From the things I've read, they're not the kind of company that's large enough to be working multiple things at the same time, so it's likely that the DKCR port is all they have going on right now.

However, I'd love to be proven wrong.  Anyways, I've been figuring that all (or most) will be revealed at E3 in a couple of months.  Until then, relax and go spin your bot some more... you know it makes you feel good. :)
I don't always play videogames, but when I do, I prefer Excitebots.  Keep spinning, my friends.  8)
