Plus there will be local co-op play, and other new additions
The official UK website for the upcoming re-release of Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D was recently updated and we now know there will be a few new things players can expect when it arrives on the 3DS.
The page states that there will be "brand new content created just for the Nintendo 3DS," such as a brand new surprise after players have unlocked and conquered every one of the special stages. There will be a new easy mode as well that sees players getting three hearts instead of two. More importantly, we can expect local co-op play.
Glad to hear there will be local co-op play, as the co-op stuff is what made the original Wii version so much fun for me.
