The question is, is TS4 a game the internet would go bananas about either?


Perhaps, it does have a pretty good fanbase and following online. And it's more of a core title that could get the internet folks excited.

So it's not DKCR2 apparently since he's not hinting at anything.

This was pointed out to me previously; it could also be Monkey Island, Super Monkey Ball or Ape Escape. Of course, only Donkey Kong Country or Monkey Island would actually be exciting to people on the internet.

Personally, I'm holding out for the revivial of MS-DOS classic, Gorillas.

In a way it was. While I do enjoy the Arcade DK games (and not the Mario vs. DK games, though I'm sure I'd at least enjoy the first one) I'd rather have a Donkey Kong Country inspired game.

My memory wants me to believe that these stores have jumped the gun before with game titles (and obviously the dates are all wrong, like with Smash 3DS), but this is something that they'd want you to put money down for, right? I'm going to assume that charging money to pre-order a game they've just made up is hella illegal and not likely to happen.

God damn, this is so weird.

Heh, no I have an allergy to pre-ordering. The only thing I've ever pre-ordered is the Xbox360 with Perfect Dark and From Dust on Steam.

I suspect this might be either a DK64 3DS title, DKLR or a completely new DK game. I didn't ask the guys at EB what the pre-order was about and their info as there were too many damn customers in the shop buying shit.

Well, the fact that Scraps apparently took this picture himself at least eliminates the possibility of someone else on the internet making this up.

If this is all true though, I think it is hilarious that EB Games is already offering pre-orders for the 3DS Smash. Also, just like Nuts and Bolts for the XBox, this would definitely convince me to finally get a 3DS.

Is there any way that picture is photoshopped? I can't tell, but I haven't examined it closely. It's just...what Sean said rings true. I don't know if there would be anything actually illegal about pre-selling a game that for all intents and purposes doesn't exist yet, but it sure as hell seems wrong. Not to mention really stupid. Has Gamestop ever had this kind of insider info before? E3 is in a few months so we won't know until then. There was that other game conference Alastair and Ben were at but if anything was announced there we would have heard about it, right? RIGHT?

This just seems really weird. All those other games are at least confirmed, most with release dates and everything...

I'm guessing Nintendo thinks that they should strike while the iron is hot, and they might be right. DKCR was a big hit; it made Donkey Kong a big conversation piece for the first time in years, and so even if the next DK game is nothing but an idea right now, right now is also when the concept of a new DK game is most appealing, and they know more people would pay ahead of time now, when DKCR is fresh in their heads, than they would later, when the last DK game in recent memory may be another forgettable spin-off.

I'd be more skeptical if it was just a store marquee as the only evidence of this, but the fact that Nintendo has been beating around the bush about it lately (and their 3DS preview movie used DK stuff) makes me think that it's likely to be true.

Here's a (maybe) awesome thought: What if Rare is making this game? They aren't technically banned from doing so.

A 3DS Donkey Kong game is inevitable; the issue here is whether or not one is currently in production to the point where a retailer can be aware of it and put it up for pre-order. E3 is four months away, and GDC had nothing. This is either a hell of a leak, or EB Games (hell, maybe just this one particular store) is jumping the gun a lot, which I have to question since people's money is in play here. I can't think of any other time where a brick-and-mortar retailer has opened pre-orders for a game that no one is sure exists yet.

I'll say that I don't trust that it's a DKC game just because it has DK and Diddy on the box as I think the box could be a placeholder thrown together to match the name and not evidence of what the game will actually turn out to be. That said I do think if they're charging for it seems like good odds it's an actual thing, so that's good. Probably.

This is very strange. EB Games online doesn't have Donkey Kong 3D listed, but a few other notable sites do, like Gamespot, GameFAQs, and Metactric. None of them have any info, but GameFAQs has a small forum with entries dating back to E3 2010, and Metacritic has a single, one-sentence review from ONM saying "Nintendo's best kept secret."

My guess would be that EB Games got a release list that included Donkey Kong 3D and so they had their art department whip up a demo box (as they did for Smash Bros and probably lots of other games), but how did it get on that list in the first place? They might have assumed the game existed from the DK barrels in the 3DS E3 trailer like GameFAQs did, but why are we only seeing it now?

Wouldn't it be sweet if Retro actually started working on this game while they were finishing DKCR? It's feasible considering the fact that the 3DS is basically a portable Wii in terms of it's graphical capabilities. With the engine and a big chunk of the art assets already in place, a new game could definitely be shown at E3 and out by Christmas. They wouldn't need their whole staff either, so maybe part of the team was working on this while the others helped out on Mario Kart.

Maybe it's too much to hope for, but you never know. I choose to be optimistic (so that my hopes can be more thoroughly crushed come E3).

According to my soul source, Derek, EBGames is taking preorders for a Donkey Kong 3D. Could it be Donkey Kong 64 3D? Or maybe it's Donkey Kong Land Returns? Who Knows, I'm just happy.

Nintenfreak's post refers to the fact that a mutual acquaintance has discovered other EB Games stores (even though that's a Canadian outlet and the friend lives in the US...) taking preorders for the game as well. So it's not just one store doing it.

Makes me want to go to one of the EB Games in my town, actually...

Now Derek believes, and we aren't entirely certain about this, that they might be getting their information from a site like GameFAQs, which has had Donkey Kong 3D listed since 2010, because of the Buddy Barrels in the presentation.

Yeah, I know TVTropes was assuming a DK game was going as early as 2010 because of that intro. Strange to do it two years later though, and again, EB Games would technically be scamming their customers if they were taking money for a game that doesn't officially exist.

Yep.

And retailers are known for putting up pre-orders for things that don't exist yet, but will eventually be announced. By calling it Donkey Kong 3D, they can change the placeholder to any Donkey Kong game years down the road like Mario vs. Donkey Kong 3D.

Gah! 3DS or Wii U, doesn't matter, a new DKC this year would be awesome. However, I can't help but think it'd be too much for Nintendo if they're also releasing a new 2D Super Mario Bros.. I suppose, whichever system doesn't get 2D Mario this year, should get Donkey Kong, that would be a nice balance.

Or whatever, Mario and Donkey Kong, same system, same timeframe, it could happen.

Talked to the blokes at eb games. They said that the headquarters of eb games sent them the donkey Kong 3d ds covers and that they are on display. So I'm assuming the hq of Australia eb games (though he mentioned DC eb games, so maybe usa headquarters) knows that something big is happening. The staff I talked to thinks this will be released in a few months. When I asked if I could preorder it, the staff said I couldn't preorder it yet but the option should be available soon and it will probably be in the AUD$ 60-70 range.

I also took some more photos to post later in case any of you lads are in doubt about my previous pic including a silly one heh.
