Donkey Kong Country Returns to Virtual Console!

Only in Europe...

The Super Nintendo and Game Boy Donkey Kong games will be coming to the European Wii U and 3DS Virtual Console over the new few weeks. The announcement came from Nintendo of Europe today that the Super Nintendo classics would return to the Virtual Console service after a two year absence. Donkey Kong Country, Donkey Kong County 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, and Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie's Double Trouble will be released on the Wii U on October 16th, October 23rd, and October 30th respectively. Donkey Kong Land, Donkey Kong Land 2, and Donkey Kong Land III will see release on the 3DS Virtual Console on the same dates as their Super NES counter parts.

Along side these releases, Wii U owners who purchase any of the Super NES classics will receive a 33% discount on Donkey Kong County: Tropical Freeze. Meanwhile, 3DS owners will receive a 33% discount on Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D with the purchase of any of the Donkey Land titles. Currently these Virtual Console releases have not been announced for North America. The Donkey Kong Country Games were previously released on the Wii's Virtual Console, but were pulled from the service in 2012.
