This game should be called Donkey Kong Land Returns.

Handheld version of the console original. It's been what, almost 20 years since DKL3?

If this were a new game, sure. It isn't.

And really now they've just shot themselves in the foot if they DO wanna make a new portable Donkey Kong. They can't very well call it Donkey Kong Land Returns now. Imagine every young kid and uninformed parent looking at games on the shelf...

"Well, we can choose Land or Country."
"Country sounds bigger, AND it's $20 cheaper!"
"Obviously something isn't right. But if ignorance is bliss, would you rather smile or fight? ...Well, I'll take fight."

Isn't this the same as the wii version, and just a port? Why change the name? It'd be like when they released Super Mario World on GBA but instead called it Super Mario Land. The "Land" part is probly just for new handheld entries and not ports.

That makes no sense. The DKL games were not ports of the DKC games. Similar, yes, but not ports.

Ehh I would argue that DKL2 and DKL3 were more or less altered ports or demakes of the SNES games.

DKL1, though, is different enough. It has different setpieces and even a couple unique enemies from the SNES game.

We do not discuss the GBA ports though, do we? Except maybe DKC3 GBA. I actually think that one had a better soundtrack. Also an extra world.
