Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Dixie Kong and Cranky Kong return for the franchise’s debut on Nintendo Switch!
This title includes all the fun and challenge of the original game, plus a new beginner-friendly mode that lets players enjoy this critically acclaimed adventure as groovy surfing simian Funky Kong. Funky Kong can double jump, hover, perform infinite rolls and even perform infinite underwater corkscrews. Thanks to his sturdy surfboard, even spikes can't slow him down.
FUNKY MODE Play as Donkey Kong or that spectacular surfing simian, Funky Kong, in a more casual gaming experience. Newer players will appreciate the extra hearts and being able to get items at a discount at Funky’s Fly ‘n’ Buy, while speedrunners will love blasting through levels on Funky’s surfboard at a blistering pace!
Looking for the ultimate challenge? If you collect all the K-O-N-G letters in each level and complete all of the hidden island Secret Seclusion levels in either Original or Funky Mode, you can select "Hard Mode" at each level while being able to control any KONG available in that save file.
GO BANANAS WITH A BUDDY Whether you’re playing Original or Funky Mode, you and a friend can team up and take on the Snowmads side by side. Each player can use a single Joy-Con controller, so no additional accessories are required.* Player 1 controls Donkey Kong or Funky Kong** while Player 2 controls one of their pals—Diddy, Cranky, or Dixie—and their special moves.
TEST YOUR BEST AGAINST THE WORLD After you’ve beaten a level, you can replay it in single-player mode and try to beat your time in Time Attack. If you beat your best time for a level and are connected to the Internet, you can upload your new time and replay to the online leaderboards and see how others did.
THE DK CREW;
DONKEY KONG This banana-loving, barrel-bashing hero is ready to take on the Snowmads—with a little help from his friends.
FUNKY KONG In all-new Funky Mode, the fun-loving proprietor of Funky’s Fly ‘n’ Buy surfs into action, hovering over obstacles with ease on his surfboard and swimming underwater indefinitely thanks to his handy snorkel.
DIDDY KONG Diddy’s back in action! This time he's helping Donkey Kong dodge obstacles with his hovering Barrel Jet and pummel foes with his Peanut Popgun.
DIXIE KONG Dixie Kong can blast baddies with her Gumball Popgun, and her ponytail-whirling Helicopter Spin is just what Donkey Kong needs to be lifted to safety.
CRANKY KONG Cranky Kong can use his cane to bounce on spikes and other hazards. Time his jumps just right and you can reach all-new heights. He can also take out enemies by throwing his dentures at them!
