So I didn't get to complete Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D for the 3DS because it's just too weird/difficult to control, I got up to level 8-7, the level right before the final boss, but I did go back to the Wii version to see if I missed anything. To my surprise, it was only at 78% and at that moment I remembered why. My old original Wii was at the brink of not being able to read discs anymore, and I think I rushed through the game as fast as I could, that's why I never completed the game back then. I still had to collect all the KONG letters, all the puzzle pieces, complete the Temple levels and complete every level on Time Attack and Mirror Mode. To be honest, I had no idea about Mirror Mode until I read about it sometime in November(this month). It sure took a damn long time, but I finally 200%'d the game. The four icons next to the 200% are for: collecting all the KONG letters for every level, collecting all the puzzle pieces, Time Attack rank for every level, and completing every level in Mirror Mode.
Also, when I made the switch from 3DS to Wii remote, it was such a huge difference in control. I was able to complete most of the levels without dying once. However, on the 3DS version, I was dying way too many times to count, 10-20+ times on the Rocket Barrel and Mine Cart levels. Maybe because my hands are too big or something. Anyways, I'm totally exhausted from playing each level at least 3 times. Yes, 3 times. One for the normal level with the KONG letters and puzzle pieces, another for Time Attack and again for Mirror Mode(you can collect KONG letters and puzzle pieces in this mode too, but you'd still have to play each level 3 times anyways).

I guess now's the perfect time to start playing Tropical Freeze since it's getting colder this time of the year(at least where I live). Probably won't bother trying to 100% or 200% the game, I just want to enjoy the story/cinematics this time, dood.

@syrup I'd say around 2 weeks. I think it's a little bit easier since Diddy can help Donkey hover for a short duration, and you can buy balloons for extra lives and Squawks to help find puzzle pieces and stuff. Also, to get 200%, you only have to complete every level on normal and Mirror Mode only, don't need to collect all the puzzle pieces or do Time Attack.

woah, 200%? How long did it take you? Is this as hard as the SNES DK's?
