I just took a look through the highest selling games in Japan, and the record holder for a Western developed game, is the original Donkey Kong Country with over 3 million units. Tetris on Gameboy is above it, but that version of Tetris was developed in Japan, even if the original was Russian.


I'm pretty sure Russia isn't part of the west.

Well if anyone is going to eat up the revival of the series in that way, I would expect Japan to be the one on board the most.  But I'm not sure if they'll be able to replicate that same success with DKCR as they did with New Super Mario Bros.  However, for some reason I think they'll see the most surprises from how well the American and European markets accept the product as this game will probably be their big holiday title.

I'm pretty sure the game wasn't developed in kamchatka.  Europe is the west.

O.T:This game will sells shittons, but it would have better potential to sell if DK had wavey or spikey hair and blue eyes ;)



                                                                           

Some of you people are very optomistic about your sales.

It could,anything is possible.



Piracy says no, it won't.

If there's something I've learned from Japanese is that they are unpredictable, so it's possible. 

Donkey is a classic and loved franchise after all.

I have no money to bet with! But I do plan on getting the game.



It could, NSMB Wii kind of started a 2D Renaissance  and Donkey Kong might get more sales off the back of that game, from its own quality and brand power.
