Donkey Kong Country coming to the Wii

By Scott Mendelson

HollywoodNews.com: I don’t generally buy video games these days. Sure, Red Dead Redemption might be wonderful, but I do not have the hours and hours of disposable time to invest in such a sprawling world. But this one looks like something the spouse can play right along with me, as we both got a big kick out of Super Mario Bros Wii.

The original Donkey Kong Country was released in 1994, and it was the last great game on the good ol’ Super Nintendo (it sold 8 million copies, which was more than any stand-alone title in Super Nintendo history). But I was less crazy about the 3D Nintendo 64 version that came out Christmas 1999.
