When Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D hits the Nintendo eShop for 3DS, players will be able to partake in an optional easy mode and hit up other players through multiplayer if they so choose. Local multiplayer was also an option in the original Wii version, and instead of only having two hearts for health, easy mode grants you an extra one. Easy mode also offers items which can make Rocket Barrels take more damage, save players from a bad fall, and one that allows users to make use of the DK Barrel anytime they wish. That’s not all either: check out Nintendo UK for word on some of the new content included in the 3DS version.
The game is out May 24. Thanks, Nintendo World Report.

Here’s a couple of neat anniversaries for you. As noted by GoNintendo, we have two birthdays this week. Atari turns 40 on June 27; gloss over the great crash and remind yourself the company was responsible for making video games a thing people understood, paving the way for the NES and, you know, our entire industry. Meanwhile, king of the arcade Donkey Kong, the father of Mario, hits 30 years on Saturday. Bless.

Steve Wiebe has set a new Donkey Kong Jr. record, according to Twin Galaxies.
The King of Kong star surpassed Ike Hall’s previous score of 1,033,000 with a massive 1,139,800.
Loads of patience there we reckon.
Attendees at E3 this year can watch Wiebe try for the fourth time to break Billy Mitchell’s Donkey Kong record on June 2.
