Donkey Kong Country Returns to become third Nintendo game with auto-pilot control

Infendo

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 Miyamoto—as were many of Nintendo’s best ideas—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.
