Donkey Kong Country gets Super Guide

You'll have help to complete this tough platformer...

Donkey Kong Country Returns will be the third Nintendo game to feature a 'Super Guide' style feature.

According to IGN, the game will give you a bit of assistance if you die eight times in a level.


When this happens the pig who you'll see when you pass a checkpoint will turn up and suggest that you use this function.

If you choose to use the Super Guide a white version of Donkey Kong will play through the level for you, although you can jump in and play as Donkey Kong once he passes that section which you are stuck on.

However, if you choose to use it there will be a penalty as none of the bananas, banana coins, puzzle pieces or KONG letters will be added to your collection.

New Super Mario Bros. Wii was the first game to feature a Super Guide function and in Super Mario Galaxy 2, players could call on the help of a cosmic witch.

You may need to use the Super Guide 2 as according to ONM's Donkey Kong Country Returns preview.
