Donkey Kong Country Returns

Donkey Kong is back.

Nintendo has released a new game called "Donkey Kong Country Returns." CNET's Dan Ackerman says it feels a lot like the arcade classics.

"You're running from one side of the screen to the other, jumping over obstacles, collecting bananas, jumping in cannons to shoot yourself across the screen," he said. "It's really a lot of fun. Takes you through a lot of varied environments. You know, it's a great sort of family, not too serious game."

The game is available exclusively for the Wii.
