Texas developer Retro Studios has said that despite good sales and critical-acclaim, it has no plans to make a sequel to Donkey Kong Country Returns.
Nintendo’s Kensuke Tanabe, who worked closely with Retro Studios on the Metroid Prime series and Donkey Kong Country Returns told Game Informer:
"I wouldn’t say we won’t do a sequel for Donkey Kong Country Returns, but we don’t have anything planned at this time."
Our mag PlayZine thoroughly enjoyed the long-awaited return of Donkey Kong scoring it with an impressive 9 out of 10 calling it "a solid package that never fails to surprise and regularly speaks at platforming excellence".
Tanabe does leave us with a glimmer of hope saying that a sequel to Metroid Prime was never planned until late in development:
"I wasn’t even thinking about doing a sequel for Metroid Prime until Retro showed me the last scene in the game, which was near the end of development."
