Donkey Kong Country Returns is a platform video game for the Nintendo Wii game console. It was made by Retro Studios and published by Nintendo. It was released in North America on November 21, 2010, in Australia on December 2, 2010, in Europe on December 3, 2010, and in Japan on December 9, 2010. It is the first game in the Donkey Kong Country series since Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! in 1996.

The plot involves the Tiki Tak Tribe hypnotizing the animals of Donkey Kong Island. The hypnotized animals steal Donkey Kong's bananas. Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong go on an adventure to take back their bananas from the Tikis.

Many elements of the Donkey Kong Country games return. These include the mine cart levels, the ability to collect bananas, and the golden KONG letters. Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong are once again the main playable characters.

On February 14, 2013, Nintendo announced a Nintendo 3DS port of the game called Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. It was released in North America and Europe on May 24, 2013,[1] in Australia on May 25, 2013, and in Japan on June 13, 2013.
