Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D announced for 3DS

Wii platformer being "rebuilt from the ground up".

Nintendo is developing a new version of side-scrolling Wii platformer Donkey Kong Country Returns for 3DS.

It's being "rebuilt from the ground up", Nintendo Europe leader Satoru Shibata said in the company's just-concluded Nintendo Direct conference.

No other details of the game were mentioned, save for a vague "summer" launch window.

Donkey Kong Country Returns was released to a warm reception on Wii back in 2010. It was the handiwork of acclaimed Metroid Prime developer Retro Studios, although its unclear if Retro are working on this version as well.

A 3D trailer will be available on the 3DS eShop later today. In the meantime, the first screenshots are below.
