Donkey Kong Land, Country Roll Onto Virtual Console

Recommended Posts


Nintendo has released a barrel-blasting series of games onto its 3DS and Wii U Virtual Consoles. The first three entries in the Donkey Kong Land and Donkey Kong Country games are now available for download.


Donkey Kong CountryDonkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, and Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble, are available for $7.99 apiece. The first game was a milestone in its day, presenting pre-rendered characters that were unlike the vast majority of games on the SNES.


Donkey Kong LandDonkey Kong Land 2, and Donkey Kong Land III were all fun portable riffs on the series, but the most noteworthy thing about them is they shipped on yellow carts.


All were developed by Rare, so we can only assume that the "Publisher Nintendo" bullet point on each game's Virtual Console landing page is a consistent typo.


The games were made available on the UK's Virtual Console late last year, and North American audiences are getting the games as well as an accompanying promotion. If you buy one or more of these titles before March 3, you can get 30 percent off the eShop purchase of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze on Wii U or Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D for the 3DS. If you want to fully lose your mind, Donkey Kong style, you can download an NES Donkey Kong theme for your 3DS, too.




It's cool they are available but that price is a little steep.
