Monkey see, monkey do.

If you've been wondering about what kind of box art Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D would receive, wonder no longer. Not only is Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D a remake for its original Wii version Donkey Kong Country Returns, but so is the box art. Unfortunately, Nintendo have just slapped a "3D" stamp on the artwork for the North American 3DS version and changed up the background just a smidgen.

Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D is scheduled to be released in North America and Europe on May 24th, 2013 as both digital download or retail copy. It will also be released in Japan at a later date during the Summer.

Here's what the Wii version of box art looks like for Donkey Kong Country Returns:

That is a shame. I mean yes it is a 3D port of sorts but geeze a unique cover art would have been nice.
well, whatever [I really hoped for another box art]
If you buy the digital version, it doesnt matter what art is on the box. LOL. :-)

But it is lazy of them. I'm still not sure about this port. I wasnt a big fan of the Wii version, mainly because of the clunky motion controls. Seeing how those have been removed for the 3DS version, I might give it a try. Hopefully they do a demo of this so I can test it out.

But, I am impressed with the graphics in it. Looks really close to the Wii version, thats pretty impressive

That is true but there is something about how a nice collection of games looks like on your shelf that always makes me hesitant to go digital.

I agree with you about having a nice game collection on the shelf and how it looks, I only buy digital games that cannot be bought in the store otherwise.  it would have been great if they put more effort into making this box art be more original for 3DS to stand on its own rather than a repeat.  Even if the game is the same the box doesn't have to be.
