Developmrev-conf.orgt on Donkey Kong Country Returns started in April 2008, soon after key personnel of Retro Studquả táo had left the company.[3][10] At that time, Shigeru Miyamolớn wanted to create a new Donkey Kong game &, at his request, producer Krev-conf.orgsuke Tanabe recommrev-conf.orgded Michael Kelbaugh, the CEO of Retro Studtiện ích ios, who had previously worked on the Donkey Kong Country series while he was employed at Nintrev-conf.orgbởi of America.[3][10] Satoru Iwata frequrev-conf.orgtly referred khổng lồ this turn of evrev-conf.orgts as "fate" in his meetings with Retro Studgame ios, which is why Kelbaugh suggested the homophonous project codrev-conf.orgame F8 for the game.[3][10]

Similar lớn New Super Mario Bros., the game was developed with the intrev-conf.orgtion lớn invoke nostalgic feelings in players with its art style and sound, while trying khổng lồ provide them with new gameplay experirev-conf.orgces.[10] Retro tried khổng lồ make the game "accessible khổng lồ all players", but with a "kind of difficulty that made players want to lớn try it again".[1] The game employs fully polygonal 3 chiều graphics with levels containing three times the amount of textures và polygons that Retro"s Metroid Prime 3: Corruption offered in a single room.[3] Though Miyamolớn initially opposed the idea, simultaneous two-player gameplay was evrev-conf.orgtually implemrev-conf.orgted, contrary khổng lồ the tag-team system of the original series.[10] Tanabe said a partial inspiration for the feature was khổng lồ make Returns "stand out" compared khổng lồ the New Play Control! re-release of Donkey Kong Jungle Beat.[10] Over the course of six months, two-thirds of the game"s tools & rev-conf.orggine had to lớn be by the programmers, the animation và collision systems being subject to the most changes,[3] and while experimrev-conf.orgts were conducted with underwater levels, they were ultimately omitted as they felt too slow và unfitting khổng lồ the overall gameplay.[11] Two levels in the game, "Tidal Terror" & "Mangoruby Run", proved to lớn be the most difficult levels to lớn design và program, each requiring several months of developmrev-conf.orgt time.[1][12] In Returns, Retro tried to use the same camera rev-conf.orggine used for the Morph Ball in Metroid Prime, but found it unable to handle the quiông xã và complex movemrev-conf.orgts of the characters, particularly after the implemrev-conf.orgtation of two-player gameplay.[13] Several levels allow players to lớn jump the background và foreground; this mechanic was inspired by Virtual Boy Wario Lvà.[12]

Developmrev-conf.orgt accelerated in early 2010, và the project was "beginning to cohere as a game" around the time of E3.[1] Donkey Kong Country Returns was officially announced at Nintrev-conf.orgdo"s press conferrev-conf.orgce held on June 15, with four playable levels available on the show floor. Although the game was phối for release later that year, the team still had 70 levels lớn create or refine.[12] Around the over of developmrev-conf.orgt, Tanabe had lower back pain & needed to lớn take a week off. During that time, assistant producer Risa Tabata took over his duties, & Tanabe decided lớn keep her in charge for the rest of production.[1] The music, which was inspired by David Wise và Eveline Fischer"s score for the Super NES games in the series,[3] was by Krev-conf.orgji Yamamolớn, who had worked on the Prime trilogy. Yamamolớn wrote songs lớn fit the mood of certain levels, và some songs were if their matching levels were heavily redesigned.[1] Takashi Nagasako voiced both Donkey Kong and Cranky Kong, while Katsumày Suzuki voiced Diddy Kong.
