My feelings towards Donkey Kong Country Returns have been a bit of a minecart rollercoaster. My first reaction, as a right-thinking SNES veteran, was a simple "WAYHAAAAAY!" But then I found out that there would be no water levels, and as a right-thinking SNES veteran, my soul became gripped with a terrible malaise, brought on by the knowledge that I would be denied a modern day remix of this tune.
But now I've seen this new trailer, entitled 'Eruption'. My current feelings? 'WELCOME BACK, WAYHAY!' Because it's nearly one and a half minutes of the gloriously hardcore, pixel-perfect, seat-of-the-pants exhilaration that made the original DKC such a thrill. Only exponentially boosted by modern tech and design savvy. Watch it, and tell me if you're as pumped as I now am.
Those mine carts. Seriously, those mine carts. God, I've missed mine carts.
UPDATE: Aquatic Ambience might be in there after all. YEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSS!
