Donkey Kong Country Returns: New trailer is a thrilling hardcore gift to your mid-'90s self

Mine carts evolved

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!



Long-time GR+ writer Dave has been gaming with immense dedication ever since he failed dismally at some '80s arcade racer on a childhood day at the seaside (due to being too small to reach the controls without help). These days he's an enigmatic blend of beard-stroking narrative discussion and hard-hitting Psycho Crushers.
