“We thought that bringing back the familiarity that players experienced in Donkey Kong Country Returns It would be a good way to further reinforce your love for these characters. We felt that this was the best option instead of adding different companions instead, and we felt that the introduction of the other Kongs covered the need to broaden the character lineup and add new mechanics for players,” Joly detailed. “However, we would have loved to introduce new animal companions. Like Enguarde, for example, which was about to be added“, ditch on the subject.
