The gameplay however is still as tight as it was on the Wii U release, meaning that from the earliest levels, you will need to make sure you learn the controls as rushing through, will likely end in your death. There are three basic moves for the characters, jump, grab and pound and combining all of these from one into the next is what is going to save you. No longer do characters just grab vines, they only do that if you hold down the grab button, let go of that button and your character does the same, likely falling into a giant hole. Being able to combine all the moves is important, but so is working with your primate pal, either Diddy, Dixie or Cranky and using their skills to get around to the hidden parts of the world.
The music on the original release was given a massive bump, with David Wise returning and even now, years later the soundtrack is still as enjoyable as it was then. David if you are not familiar was the man behind those tunes we all fell in love with back on the Super Nintendo and hearing a more modern version of those classic tunes brings back rushes of nostalgia to me and I hope they do to you as well. While there are many instances of the classic tunes making an appearance, it is the new melodies that are incredible, mixing in the old to make something new. Again, though Grassland Groove comes to mind, just listen to it here, and you will see that the music in this game is great.
