    Simply speculation, but things some haven't touch on overly here.
    Also, the 5th thing was the Wii still being hard to find by next Christmas.

    A new Donkey Kong would be absolutely amazing! But, I don't know what grounds they are predicting that on. (Unless Retro's working on a DK game)

    *Ponders*

    The rest I think are obvious predictions though. I'm actually pretty pumped for next year. Hopefully no delay for Mario Kart.

    I don't like this.

    The Donkey Kong prediction is just stupid imo. A donkey kong game was just released, and if Nintendo was going to make a Donkey Kong game why haven't they until now? They had plenty of time.

    WiiSports and WiiFit are givens, AND YOU SAY THERES GOING TO BE A BIG ANNOUNCEMENT AT E3!? YOU MUST BE JOKING!

    Well, a DK game is a definitely plausible. And if you look at it, Retro could easily be developing it.

    Remember Retro is working on a new project and Matt C. confirmed in a podcast that they were bringing back an old franchise. And of course people jumped to Kid Icarus and I personally though Project Hammer even had an outside chance.

    Well, what if he was "sort of" throwing us off. I mean DK games have continued to be made well since DK64, but the true platformer hasn't been around since. So, in a way they'd be "bringing back an old franchise". But people wouldn't have thought as Donkey Kong standing a chance.

    I think the game could still very well be a Donkey Kong title..

    (Even though there are a lot better options out there)

    I had never heard that before, and I personally love what Retro did with the Metroid series.

    Thanks for that, I'm looking forward to any game they decide to bring back.

    Yeah, people tend to have mixed feelings about DK64. I personally loved it. I would go as far as saying that it is in my top ten games of all time. That's why I'd pretty pumped for a true sequel to 64.

    I'd really prefer a side-scrolling one.

    I've never seen a side-scrolling game with amazing graphics, and I don't really see why it shouldn't be done. Remake DK Country 1, 2 and 3 onto one disk on the wii? Best seller in no time.

    Finally, a Donkey Kong game in the making, and I'm not counting that Donkey Kong Barrel Blast junk. Hopefully it will be a nice followup to Donkey Kong 64.

    really? i like the side scrolling ones like LIK. I thought DK64 wasn't viewed as a success. I guess i wouldn't mind it as long as i get a side-scroller on the ds or something.

    Yeah, on average the side scrolling versions are much more loved, but Donkey Kong 64 was still liked by a lot of people.

    It actually didn't get horrible reviews either:

    I never got to play DK64. So ive been waiting for a sequel since SNES. But this prediction is exactly what its called, a prediction. Even if it was said that an old franchise would be returning. It could still be anything. There's so many Nintendo franchises its insane. Its more believe to think a developer like Retro Studios would be more suited for another sci-fi game, like StarFox. But w/e *crosses fingers for DK Wii*

    Football, Racing, some sort of action adventure title I assume was tentatively named, and what sounds like a hack and slash.

    So, although we don't know why these games were canceled, it at least looks as if Nintendo is confident in Retro to make games of different genres. So, from the list we have there, we really don't know where Retro's next game could go.

    I don't doubt a new DK as when the Wii was announced so was a Donkey Kong platformer ,but i think Retro is working on Kid Icarus with the Raven's Blade engine thats my thinking. Why scrap a whole engine
