The 'Shroom:Issue II/Upcoming Games
Coming out Feb. 7, 2007 in the USA ; April 5, 2007 in Australia ; and unconfirmed dates to countries in between.
The confirmed Characters: Diddy Kong , Dixie Kong , Tiny Kong , Timber , Bumper , Tiptup , Pipsy , and Krunch. Sadly, Banjo and Conker aren't going to be present due to Microsoft's bid on Rare, many people knew this would happen, and the odds were in that favor, sadly. The Confirmed Unlockables are Drumstick , T.T. , Taj , and , by surprise, Wizpig!
According to all, the Gameplay is similar, with some newer features tagged to it. The silver Coin Challenge is gone, replaced with minigames and bananas are non-existent here.
Due to its questionable rocket start (You need to turn the wheel manually) and loss of classic tasks, critics are skeptical on it's success.
