Monster Games Apparently Isn’t Making Diddy Kong Racing Wii U


You may remember that there was a rumour floating around which stated that Monster Games is developing Diddy Kong Racing for Wii U. Well, according to Emily Rogers, who is a collaborator and supporter with indie game developers, the game isn’t in development. Monster Games is the development studio behind Excite Truck for Wii and Pilotwings Resort for the Nintendo 3DS.

Wherever that rumor came from…well…it’s bogus. Not true. Monster Games is not making DKR for Wii U.


  1. Can’t say I’m disappointed, but at least the rumor can be put to rest. We’ll see the new Mario Kart in a few months, so that should be great.

  2. Ok, good.
    I never really saw the attraction to the game.
    Probably just nostalgia googles again.

  3. So these are all games that will come to the Wii U, Mario, Mario Kart and Zelda, and that’s it … : ((((

    1. Shigeru Miyamoto’s new IP, Pikmin, Retro’s game, Monolith Soft’s game “X”, Yoshi Barn. There’s a few of what’s coming.

    2. Rayman Legends
      Lego City
      Monster Hunter Ultimate
      Bayonetta 2
      Wonderfull 101
      Game and Wario
      Pikmin 3
      Wiiu Party
      Monolith Softs X
      Windwaker Reborn
      Mario Kart U
      3D mario U
      Smash Bros U
      Yarn Yoshi

      Aliens colonial Marines
      Sniper Elite V2
      Need for Speed Most wanted
      Fist of the north star Kens rage 2
      Project cars

      And more.

  4. Never really liked it too much. When I want to play a racing games though, it’s Mario Kart,

  5. Well, they just said that “Monster Games is not making DKR”… but that doesn’t mean somebody else isn’t making it xD

  6. Damn. Oh well, but maybe someday. :P

    I wish there was another game like this that used a hub world and lobbies and other things. Would be cool if Mario Kart had that I guess, and I still love Mario Kart of course. :)

    1. This on Wii U. Wouldn’t it be nice. Oh well. I’m looking forward to the new Mario Kart on Wii U.

  7. Makers of excite truck not making diddy kong racing… This is probably good news.

    Hopefully this is what Rare is working on
