If you enjoyed last yearâ€™s revival of the Donkey Kong Country franchise, this may be sad news to you. In a recent interview with Game Informer, Retro Studioâ€™s CEO Michael Kelbaugh told the magazine â€œI wouldnâ€™t say we wonâ€™t do a sequel [for Donkey Kong Country Returns], but we donâ€™t have anything planned at this time.â€ This surely isnâ€™t an outright confirmation that Donkey Kong Country Returns 2 will never happen, but I surely wonâ€™t start holding my breath anytime soon.
Personally I would be alright with Retro being free to work on a different project because the studio is very talented and has so far only worked with two franchises. Â Imagine a new Star Fox title developed by the fine people at Retro. My thumbs are twitching just thinking about it.
What Nintendo franchise would you most like Retro to get a hold of?
