Donkey Kong could also be again, and performing for us, if a rumor concerning the franchise seems to be true. A recent post on Twitter by the consumer Lonely Goomba has began the rumor that Nintendo will probably be transferring Donkey Kong growth in-house so as to give us new Donkey Kong video games.
The Donkey Kong collection has had a considerably spotty historical past, and there hasn’t been a brand new launch since 2015, when Mario vs Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars got here out completely on the Nintendo 3DS eShop. If the rumor is true, nonetheless, a brand new Donkey Kong recreation may be in progress at Nintendo EPD, who developed Super Mario Odyssey.
While there hasn’t been any official affirmation from Nintendo concerning the rumor, there have been numerous corroborating statements from quite a lot of different inside sources. The recreation will apparently even be two-dimensional, or at most, 2.5-dimensional, rather than 3D like trendy Mario video games.
Donkey Kong has been a side-scroller collection since its inception, so it’s not a lot of a shock that new Donkey Kong video games, in the event that they’re being developed, will probably be following that development. The video games may also not be together with the “Country” moniker that previous Donkey Kong video games have had, supposedly as a result of Nintendo EPD doesn’t need to make sequels to video games they didn’t make.
Even if Donkey Kong gained’t be going the identical approach as Mario for its model, it’s most likely higher that Nintendo doesn’t attempt to do something too fancy to begin off. This is their first Donkey Kong recreation in any case, so maintaining it easy and true to the spirit of the unique video games is probably going the perfect choice.
If the rumors are true, and we’re getting new Donkey Kong video games coming sooner or later, hopefully Nintendo EDP will be capable of discover similar success to Rare with their video games.
