Nintendo announced today during their Nintendo 3DS Direct that the new mode will also come brimming with special items that make the game easier. For instance, green balloons will rescue you from falling into a pit that would normally cause death.
The game also features 8 brand new levels for those who clear the game. That’s new and exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS.
The 3D version even features wireless cooperative play, so you and your friend can rock out as Diddy and Donkey Kong.
Finally, if you liked the original game for the Wii, you can play that exact game by selecting the normal mode.
Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D will launch for the Nintendo 3DS on May 24th.
