Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D - Zelda Reference

The amazing Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D released last week, and GameXplain have an interesting video to celebrate the 3DS’ latest instalment of platforming goodness. In this episode of Cool Bits, Cranky Kong makes a reference to a renowned Zelda meme.

While browsing his shop for power-ups, the grouchy old ape will mutter many things to the player–more than you might expect, even if you’ve already played the game. You see, some of this dialogue can only be seen by selecting each item and waiting certain amounts of time.

This is also true of the original Wii version–but with new items in the 3DS version, there is also new dialogue. The most interesting of these phrases is “It’s dangerous to go alone. Buy this!”, an obvious parody of the first words spoken to Link in the original Legend of Zelda. There are many more interesting details in the video after the jump!
