Donkey Kong Country Grandia HD Collection

With the Grandia HD Collection now only two days away from release, I have been thinking more and more about what other series deserve HD collections that fully realize their potential on the Switch. HD remasters are already a great way to bring older series into the modern age. Such ports are even more exciting on Switch because of the console’s obvious added benefit of its games being both portable and full console experiences. Tons of great series from older systems deserve new life on Switch. Which would you most like to see?

An HD re-masterpiece

I personally would love to see a five-game Donkey Kong Country HD collection. The DKC games are very special. Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest is one of my favorite platformers of all time, while the first game, Donkey Kong Country Returns, and Tropical Freeze are all up there for me as well. The black sheep of the series, Donkey Kong Country 3, is still a very fun time.

This consistently amazing and highly replayable series would make for a great portable experience. We’ve actually have already seen that, thanks to Returns‘ 3DS port and Tropical Freeze‘s Switch version. Plus, the original trilogy has a lovely art style that would translate beautifully to HD. Considering the series’ high pedigree, a package that made all five games easily available on one platform would immediately become the holy grail of 2D platforming.

The Donkey Kong Country series is just one of dozens that deserves a Switch HD collection. What are your thoughts? What series are you interested in seeing make it over to Switch? Sound off in the comments.
