Despite being delayed to February 2014, DKC Tropical Freeze will have only 6 worlds. Two whole worlds less than DKC Returns.

It feels more and more like HD development for Nintendo games means cutting corners

If you played the demo, you'd know that the levels are very long-- even levels from earlier worlds took 7+ minutes to beat, and that's not counting retrying after losing a life.

If there are more levels per world, then it evens out.

LOL!!!! Desperate attempt to discredit a game here. Didn't anyone learn from judgine Mario 3D world from one little trailer? Of course not.

As the link said, are we getting more levels in those worlds? I remember a world in Returns having something like only 5 stages, and all of them were minecart/rocketbarrel stages.

If it was 6 worlds, around 14 levels each world, clocking in at an average of 5 minutes each level, that seems pretty good to me.

There could be a hidden 7th world in the game. It wouldn't be the first time for the DKC franchise

The comment said "6 Islands", not "6 Worlds". It is entirely possible for some Islands to be composed of 2, maybe even 3, worlds.

And in addition to all of the decent posts above, they wouldn't advertise as secret island, as it's, y'know, secret.
Here's hoping that Chrom will do Aether correctly in SSB4...

Quality over quantity. DKCR had too many terrible, gimmicky levels, I'd much rather see two worlds less with a clearer focus on level design than two worlds more. Furthermore, if you think a two month delay is enough to actually allow Retro to add two full worlds into it, then you're even more pathetic of a troll than I thought.
