Remember how hard Donkey Kong Country Returns was when it released? Well, that seems to be getting a bit of a nerf when it comes to the re-release for the 3DS, as Nintendo have announced that an easy mode will be included – giving players one extra heart while playing.
To myself, it wasn’t the difficulty that caused problems, it was the waggle controls that were tacked onto the Wii version. I still respect that game for it’s own merits even though re-playability was something that I had a hard time mustering up, but the 3DS version just seems to be better as there isn’t much of a gimmick aside from the optional 3D. Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D is due out May 24th.
