A new side-scrolling Donkey Kong game is scheduled to release on the Nintendo Wii U. The one or two player cooperative title will see the return of a lot of familiar faces from the Donkey Kong universe, including Diddy and Dixie Kong.

The new game is sort of a throwback to the earlier Sonic games on the Sega Genesis...you know, the ones that were actually good? Well, Dixie has a special ability to help her teammates fly over objects and get through tough to reach places using her ponytail-copter ability, very much like Tails and his ability to lift up Sonic in Sonic 3. Diddy is...well...Diddy is Diddy.

Anyway, the game hearkens back to the popular side-scrolling Donkey Kong games from the SNES that really helped propel the Donkey franchise into whole new heights. The music, the graphics, the gameplay all of it was absolutely top notch back then during the mid 1990s. Nintendo is hoping to cash in on some of that nostalgia with the updated, Wii U rendition of the Tropical Freeze.

With Retro Studios at the helm and a release date set for November of this year, Nintendo isn't completely counted out of the next-gen console race thanks to a few big exclusives that they still have up their sleeve. With local and online multiplayer, the game should also manage to appeal to both old-school and new-school gamers alike.
