Donkey Kong Country was one of the biggest games in its era.
Sadly, not everyone today had the chance to experience it back then.
Developed by Rare and published by Nintendo in 1994 for the Super Nintendo, Donkey Kong Country provided a revolutionary platforming experience to gamers worldwide, gameplay and visuals wise. It follows the story of gorilla Donkey Kong and his chimpanzee nephew, Diddy Kong as they embark on a series of adventures to recover their stolen banana hoard from the game’s main antagonist, an anthropomorphic crocodile named King K. Rool.
Fortunately, on the latest Nintendo Switch Online update, Donkey Kong Country has been added in its growing library of retro games. Along with it came 1994’s Natsume Championship Wrestling and The Immortal.
Now, the ‘90s kids can relive the nostalgia while the younger ones also get a taste of classic. And based on what the newbies had to say, we can confirm that Donkey Kong is, indeed, a timeless masterpiece.

Fingers crossed that we’d also see the sequels, Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest and Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong’s Double Trouble arriving on the console soon.
