Arcade Archives Donkey Kong is now available on the Nintendo Switch eShop in North America. The game has been ported by the ever-reliable Hamster and will be made available for purchase in Europe tomorrow. Here’s all the details from Nintendo UK:

DONKEY KONG is an action game released in 1981 by Nintendo. Avoid a variety of obstacles while heading through a construction site to make it to the top and rescue Lady. Use the hammer to destroy the barrels and fire coming towards you to earn more points. This version contains both the early and later versions as well as the international version.

The Arcade Archives series has faithfully reproduced many classic Arcade masterpieces. Players can change various game settings such as game difficulty, and also reproduce the atmosphere of arcade display settings at that time. Players can also compete against each other from all over the world with their high scores*.

Please enjoy the masterpieces that built a generation of video games.

  1. Now THIS is the Donkey Kong arcade game I’ve been looking for. Kudos and thanks to HAMSTER and Nintendo for bringing this arcade gem FINALLY on the Switch!

  2. Nice. The only way I could play the full arcade version at home before was through DK64 lmao.

    1. Actually, in DK64, it isn’t technically the same as Rare re-coded the game. This is the original code … 😎
