Donkey Kong Country Returns Heads to North American Wii U Virtual Console This Week

Break out your bongos — Donkey Kong Country Returns, the 2010 Wii classic, will be heading to Wii U’s Virtual Console in North America. Donkey Kong Country Returns is no stranger to Virtual Console — the game  has been available to My Nintendo participants at an exorbitantly high coin rate, and has been publicly available in Europe for quite some time.

The game, lovingly crafted by Retro Studios, will be available for $19.99 — make sure to pick it up if you never grabbed the 3DS remake, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D.
