AU Shippin' Out November 29-December 3: Donkey Kong Country Returns
Nintendo revives one franchise and celebrates another with this week's releases.
Donkey Kong heads back to the platforming jungle this week, ending his long break from the genre that launched his career post-Mario. Kept quiet until Nintendo's E3 press conference this year, Donkey Kong Country Returns is a nod to the famous ape's '90s games and is packed with features that are aimed at nostalgic players. Keep an eye out for Donkey Kong Country Returns when it's released in Australia on Thursday.
The second big game of the week from Nintendo isn't so much a new offering, but rather a bundle of four retro Mario games in limited-edition packaging. Themed around the 25th anniversary of Mario, the Super Mario All-Stars pack contains Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, Super Mario Bros. 2, and Super Mario Bros. 3 all on one disc that's playable on the Wii. On top of that there's also a soundtrack and a short text and pictorial look at the history of gaming's most iconic character. The Super Mario All-Stars bundle will also be released on Thursday.
Rounding out the week's releases are The Sly Collection, Golden Sun: Dark Dawn, and FIFA Manager 11. While the end-of-year slowdown kicks off next week, there are still a handful of games due out, one of them being World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, and AU Shippin' Out will be covering them until the end, so keep watching this space for updated release dates.
