Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D Runs at 30FPS


The original Donkey Kong Country Returns for the Wii ran at a smooth 60FPS, an impressive feat considering the hardware and just how good that game looked. The 3DS port, coming next month, is instead locked at 30FPS. This isn’t a good thing, but considering that the graphics still look great and that there’s plenty happening on screen at any given time, it’s hard to complain too much.

It’s a compromise, and a compromise that I think most people will quite happily put up with if it means getting a version of the game which can be played on the go, and which can be controlled without the need of a Wii remote.

Most people probably won’t notice the difference unless the games are placed side-by-side, so it’s completely understandable why this would be. That they’ve managed to lock it at 30FPS regardless of whether you play in 3D or not ┬áis, again, quite impressive.

This was confirmed by Nintendomination in the Youtube comments of his latest video. Check out the video below.
