You are hereDonkey Kong
The newest trailer for Donkey Kong Country Returns has quite possibly made me fall in love again. Everything that made Donkey Kong, well, Donkey Kong seems as if it'll be returning. The mine carts, shooting barrels, Rambi are all returning with a sweet new look and the same addictive gameplay. The recent return to retro with the New Super Mario Bros. and Sonic 4 might just be me reminiscing, but I hope this trend continues. Check out the nostalgia inducing trailer after the break.
Super Nintendo Entertainment System. SNES. There are three key words in there: Super, Nintendo, and Entertainment all come to mind as "important". But why? Well, the SNES was not a system, it was a promise. The "Super" told you that the titles were generally that. "Nintendo", as evidenced today, is a seal of quality. And of course, "Entertainment" refers to the fact that it will give you lots of just that. While not all titles would uphold this promise, the memorable ones did, and the SNES would go down in history because of it. Butis Donkey Kong Country a memory that faded with the rest, or did it uphold the promise of a corporation that was struggling?
