While it took Nintendo quite some time, they did eventually return to the Donkey Kong Country series with Retro at their side. The pairing proved to be quite successful, spawning two more amazing entries in the series.
With that said, most Nintendo fans still have a special place in their hearts for the Nintendo/RARE Donkey Kong Country series. It's very clear that BlobVanDam does, as he set out to recreate one of the stages from Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest in HD. The end result is something that will make just about every DKC fan beg Nintendo to actually move ahead with something like this!
