Now that Super Mario Galaxy 2 is out.....

Where is my next gen Donkey Kong platformer Nintendo??!! Thinking back on Donkey Kong 64, it was a pretty fantastic game that gives so much variety in the gameplay. It had an exploration side to it, a great mix of side stuff to do, variety in the characters that you play. I truly think that it deserves another full game, not just a cameo in some Smash Bros game or some kart racer. 
 
Putting it to you, would you like another Donkey Kong game? If not (PS: You're a terrible human being), then what would you like to see a resurgence of? I think that besides Mario and Ratchet and Clank, there aren't too many full fledged platformers out there anymore, excluding downloadable games.

I'd like another Donkey Kong game, if Rare made it.
Sadly, that's not going to happen.

Erm. You do realize that the team that made Super Mario Galaxy made a fully functional and highly acclaimed Donkey Kong platformer for the gamecube, which was then re-released for the Wii with traditional platforming controls?
 

On a related note, I'd much rather have DeBlob 2 than a new Donkey Kong game.

@EthanML: Dude, I can't believe I forgot Rare made that game. What HAVE they been doing lately, besides making a more corporate like logo?

Fucking Xbox games.

@Meowayne: To be honest, I don't think that really counts for me. As the title suggests, I'm thinking more in the vein of Super Mario Galaxy and DK64, a 3D platformer that just has all the Donkey Kong characters with their unique abilities, and crazy levels with classic end bosses.
