In this week’s Nintendo Download, Donkey Kong Country is coming back to the Virtual Console. And it’s bringing Donkey Kong Land with it.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze | Nintendo Download Europe

Do I really need to say anything else? The Donkey Kong Country games, which were removed from the Wii Virtual Console without much of an explanation, are coming back starting this week. Next week, Europe will get DKC2: Diddy Kong’s Quest — and its Game Boy counterpart, Donkey Kong Land 2. And on October 30th, DKC3: Dixie Kong’s Double Trouble and Donkey Kong Land III release.

Furthermore, both Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze will be discounted for a special offer. If you purchase one of the DKC games with your Nintendo Network ID, you can get Tropical Freeze for 33% off. The same thing happens with DKC Returns 3D if you purchase one of the DKL games. This offer is good until November 6th.

The full list of sales and releases are below. Everything happens on October 16th unless noted otherwise. Descriptions are taken directly from the press release.

Lone Survivor | Nintendo Download Europe

  • Lone Survivor: The Director’s Cut

“Lone Survivor: The Director’s Cut is a new kind of adventure where the choice of how to survive is up to you. Sneak through without firing a single shot, or kill everything in your path. Eat and sleep well, or resort to drugs to keep going. Search for survivors, or try to escape the city alone. Look after your mental health, or descend into madness. Lone Survivor is a game where your choices genuinely matter. This extended edition of Jasper Byrne’s horror masterpiece expands Lone Survivor’s deep story with hundreds of tiny new details, more locations, more dialogue, more side quests, more items, and even two completely new endings. Lone Survivor: The Director’s Cut really is the ultimate version of this acclaimed game.”
