Donkey Kong Country Returns with the classic side-scrolling play that made the original so popular, now rendered with new levels and vibrant 3D environments. When Donkey Kong's banana stash is stolen, he goes on a quest to get them back. This time, Diddy Kong joins the adventure, opening up the franchise's first opportunity for co-op play. Diddy can hop on and off Donkey Kong's back any time, giving rookies a chance to ride along when the going gets too tough.

Problems

Controllers Disconnect

Wii Remotes randomly disconnect if "Enable Speaker Data" is on. Disable it to correct the problem.

Low Resolution DK

With EFB to RAM, Donkey Kong will appear at a lower resolution than the rest of the image, and the upper left quadrant will be pixelated. Use EFB to Texture to avoid these problems.

Super Guide May Die

The Super Guide may fail or die because the game and Super Guide recordings fall out of sync. Fortunately, depending of the stage, the game continues as if he won.


Configuration

Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.
