One Donkey Kong Country 2 fan got a little creative and recreated the beloved game into all new HD glory. With an HD conversion, you can't expect it to be pretty. What we weren't expecting was how gorgeous it actually is ...

The video below comes from YouTuber BlobVanDam and highlights the Bramble Blast level in newly revamped splendor. The visuals are stunning, making an older title look much more polished and tidy. The worst (and best) part about this fan video is now we know what it would look like, we want to see the remake actually happen! It seems like every week we are uncovering a new remaster of an older game onto this current generation. Don't know about you, but getting down on some Donkey Kong Country 2 on the Nintendo Switch would be delightful!

Alas, for now our dreams must be crushed as he clearly states in the video description: “Don’t ask for download links or tell me I should release anything, as I AM NOT MAKING OR RELEASING A GAME. This is only for a video. Enjoy!”
