Donkey Kong Country Returns

In 1994, the original Donkey Kong Country single-handedly saved the Super Nintendo from losing to the Genesis. The gorgeous platformer had everyone talking, with its solid gameplay, classic characters, and, most importantly, absolutely revolutionary visuals.

After two sequels in as many years, the Donkey Kong Country series came to an abrupt halt. Donkey Kong himself (troubled hero that he is) has since starred and co-starred in many games, but a new, proper Donkey Kong Country follow-up was never released.
