We last looked at Donkey Kong Country Returns' reported game-play hours last month. The game-play hours in the last report were recorded on December 13, so we haven't looked at Donkey Kong Country Returns' game-play hours since before the Christmas and New Year's holidays.

You may recall when I mentioned in my "Christmas Gifts & My New Year's Video Game Resolution!" post that I received Donkey Kong Country Returns as a Christmas gift from Mrs. CoffeewithGames.
Well, I'm happy to say we have been playing DKCR a good bit, and we are now on World 8. Just like when we played New Super Mario Bros. Wii, there has been some yelling and screaming at the TV[and each other :)], but also cheering when bosses/levels are beaten.
We are having a lot of fun playing the game together, and I'll do an update of some sort when we complete it. If you haven't seen anything from the game, here are some trailers put together showing off game-play footage:
As for the data, I think the increase in "Total Hours" and the number of players reporting data, are both very good for the game, and I think both will keep steadily increasing over the next 2 months as more players are completing the game.
As for the game's Amazon.com sale rank, seeing it ranking below New Super Mario Bros. Wii and Mario Kart Wii this fast, makes me wonder if it will be like those games for Nintendo and have long sales legs. If you're wondering how DKCR has sold already, it's been reported that Donkey Kong Country Returns has sold over 1.8 copies, though I'm not sure if that number is for North America only, or world-wide; either way, I think it's a great number.
Now, I know some of you may be wondering about the 2011 Club Nintendo Contest, and you can find the details for the contest in the "Coffee with Games CONTEST/GIVEAWAY!" post, HERE!
