Don't tell me. GS forums are taking long to load recent posts.

The name answers that for me.

Excerpt:

  • Retro Studios and Monster Games have been collaborating on Diddy Kong Racing 2.
  • This is why Monster Games ported Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D and worked with Retro Studios on DKC: Tropical Freeze.
  • Diddy Kong Racing 2 began as a prototype in 2006. The animal transformation vehicles idea in Excitebots (2009) came from Diddy Kong Racing 2 prototype. The animal vehicles came from the idea of riding animal buddies in the Donkey Kong Country series.
  • The Wii Diddy Kong Racing was cancelled due to Donkey Kong Barrel Blasts low sales. It was also cancelled because Diddy Kong Racing DS didn’t sell as well as the original N64 game.
  • Nintendo asked Monster Games to work on Pilotwings because they were impressed with the flight/airplane mechanics in Monster’s DKC Racing prototype. Diddy Kong Racing was well known for letting players ride karts, hovercrafts, and planes.
  • Diddy Kong Racing 2 started up development for again (this time for Wii U) due to the amazing sales of Donkey Kong Country Returns and Mario Kart Wii.
  • Kensuke Tanabe, the producer of Donkey Kong Country Returns and Tropical Freeze, pitched the idea of Dillon (from Dillon’s Rolling Western) to be one of the racers in the game. Tanabe was the producer of Dillon’s Rolling Western, and he liked the idea of having a roster of lesser known Nintendo characters.
  • Tanabe thought that the concept of lesser known Nintendo characters “fighting to be Nintendo’s big star” could prove to be interesting for Diddy Kong Racing. Characters such as Mallo (Pushmo) and Rusty (Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball) were also added as racers to fill out the roster.
  • Nintendo purposely held off from showing Diddy Kong Racing 2 at E3 this year to avoid sabotaging the excitement around Mario Kart 8. It sounds like Diddy Kong Racing 2 will be revealed sometime in 2015, and released that same year.
  • Diddy Kong was taken out of Mario Kart 7 and 8 because of Diddy Kong Racing 2. Diddy Kong had appeared in Double Dash and Mario Kart Wii.

Okay, there's something that screams BS about this. How would Diddy Kong Racing kill the excitement of Mario Kart 8, considering Diddy Kong Racing didn't even sell as well as Mario Kart 64 (or any Mario Kart game for that matter)?

Your thoughts?

The best nintendo console of all time was the SNES, some say its the best console ever. Why don't they just keep coming out with classic RPG's and to keep up with the times start developing some new school shooters?

Most the gaming population are that above, I would prefer Nintendo not cater to them and leave that to Sony and Microsoft.

I would not want to see Nintendo keep up with the times and release annual military shooters

lol, I remember Sean Malstrom posting that pic in one of his blogs criticizing the hardcore.

I think the SNES was just more popular in America, I know the Americans had a real hard on for Nintendo back then. I had a SNES and a Megadrive and I liked the Megadrive more, so did everyone I know who also had one at the time. In most cases the multi plats where better on the Megadrive too ...Except Street Fighter 2.

Genesis had a lead in America (but it was close). If anything, the SNES was more popular in Japan (hence the huge Japanese support in contrast to western), while in Europe, it got ridiculed by the Genesis/Mega Drive.

They HAD a patent for it, so I don't believe them.

because what made the Snes awesome wasn't the nintendo games but the 3rd party support. But because nintendo never listens then the 3rd party's don't give a fuck about them either.

It's posts like this that REALLY make me question what qualifies as a "true Nintendo" fan.

By the way, you're aware that the SNES, even with all the third party support, STILL HAD a first party foothold in sale right? Look at the top list. The only third party game to crack the top ten was Street Fighter II (two different versions), but even so, like the N64, Nintendo and Rare ran things across the board in sales.

How can Inafune "rip-off" his own work? Use some common sense, Gue1.

He doesn't think Inafune IS the creator of Mega Man. That's the problem. Heck, he came up with some nonsense where Inafune, Yokoi/Sakamoto, and their "mentor" had a drinking game over Mega Man and Metroid's creation.

You wouldn't be saying this if PS4 was in the lead.
