Nintendo announced today Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D has been announced for 3DS. The handheld title will be a port of the acclaimed Wii platformer first released in 2010.
A 3D-enabled trailer of the game will be available to download from the handheld’s eShop later today. Developed by Retro Studios, Donkey Kong Country Returns marked a return to the series’ side-scrolling roots.
It was recently revealed that the SNES trilogy of Donkey Kong Country games would be removed from the Wii’s eShop. Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D will be available in Japan this summer, while European and American release dates have yet to be confirmed.
