Bargain Roundup: Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D

by Daniel VuckovicMay 27, 2013

It’s on like, well you know. Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D is out in Australia tomorrow, well Saturday. Who knows when you’re reading this.

The game was great on the Wii and it looks like its going to be great on the 3DS as well. It’s pretty much a straight port from the Wii version but there is some new content here and of course no more motion controls now. Hooray.

There has been some debate on Twitter today about price matching with EB, especially since they’re including that fancy looking DK Tie with every copy. If you try to price match at EB, you may not get the tie.

EB says price matches have to be like for like, no DK tie at Big W (or other store) means you can’t price match. Though you local EB dude or dudette might just do it anyway.

There isn’t many prices, but that’s the way the cookie crumbles these days. Least they’re cheap.

    I preordered this at EBGames because they had a “FREE” tie offer.
    Asked them to beat Big W’s $48 price and they said they could only match it and also you forfeit the tie.

    Tie ended up costing $11.95

    I preordered at JB for $59 and they price matched me for Big W at $48 (even though its not strictly their policy to do so). I used the difference to buy an 8gb SD card.

    I persisted with EB and they price matched big W and gave me the tie

    I bought from the eShop @ $60. Glad to see Nintendo are beginning to see sense… $70 for download is WAY too much. Hope they continue to gradually get cheaper.

    Took about an hour to download! Maybe because I kept waking it up to check if it was done yet. >_<

      @Lenny Kenny Denny

      RRP is $59.95 for DKC:R 3D so Nintendo is actually charging full price for the download. I do not believe it is a sign of digital prices dropping.
