Auto-pilot gaming is coming to Donkey Kong Country Returns.
First introduced in New Super Mario Bros. Wii and later on Super Mario Galaxy 2, the so-called Super Guide gives players the option to turn on auto-controls after dying eight consecutive times. Designed by Shigeru Miyamotoâ€”as were many of Nintendo’s best ideasâ€”the feature only finishes the current level and can be turned off at anytime. In other words, it’s a great compromise to make games more accessible without dumbing them down for seasoned players.
Donkey Kong Country Returns drops Nov. 21 on Wii. It’s rated Everyone and retails for $50.
