Fils-Aime: So I’ve been looking at all of the social media, and one of the big questions is, “Why did Retro decide to do another story of Donkey Kong Country?”

Kelbaugh: Well, after DKCR, we had a lot of gas left in the tank; there was a lot of cool things we wanted to do – the underwater levels, the 3D camera. We were just very excited about working with Donkey Kong and wanted to continue that. And the Wii U hardware allowed us to do a lot of really new, cool tricks. So it was just natural – we went out of the Wii version into the Wii U version, and that same level of excitement and a whole lot of new stuff there.

So basically, they did it because they had a lot of ideas left that they couldn't apply to DKCR, kind of like the story behind Galaxy 2.

Glad that they're doing what they want to be doing, and not being forced into a role.

I kinda like to imagine that all Voice-Actors are reality-jumping individuals basically stuck in a Quantum Leap situation.

They gave it the new sonic treatment. Adding generic cartoon characters xD

They should reveal why Nintendo limited them to making one game when they have 10billion dollars and no debt.

Being pennywise is part of the reason they have all that cash.

I think this is a sign that Tropical Freeze will have a lot of surprises in store.

More villains need to be protagonists. BIS proves it can work.
Ridley, Ganondorf, Fawful, Bowser, and Dimentio all for their own games!

Not saying this isn't true, but they made a lot of money last gen and didn't invest enough this time. Retro is the perfect studio to invest in heavily but nope.
