The 3DS release calendar is already looking pretty full, with Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity, and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate all hitting the system within the next two weeks (not to mention LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins arriving in April), but it looks like we can now add another game to the list of upcoming releases: Nintendo has announced that Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D will be coming to the handheld on May 24.
Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D is a 3DS port of Retro Studios’ excellent Wii platformer, which was released for the console back in November, 2010. We learned last week that the port is being handled by Monster Games, the developer behind Excitebots and Pilotwings Resort.
