Rumour: Nintendo apparently has a Donkey Kong animated project in the works

Known video game leaker Zippo is at it again and this time his sources have informed him that Nintendo has another animated project in the works and this time it is based on the Donkey Kong franchise. While a number of sources have stated that a new Donkey Kong game is in the works for the Switch (which we have yet to have confirmed by Nintendo) this new leak is for an animated Donkey Kong project. Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa has said that the Kyoto-based company is looking to utilise the animation space for its prestigious IP’s and it is starting with the Super Mario Movie, which is scheduled for next year. Here’s what Zippo has heard regarding the Donkey Kong animated series.

“I’ve been told by multiple people that Donkey Kong is the next franchise in line to follow Mario in Nintendo’s push for their game franchises to become multimedia juggernauts.

Donkey and co. aren’t just getting a new game, they’re getting animation (Before this catches fire, my sources did not specify whether or not this was a movie or a show, just that an animation featuring DK characters was early in the works.) a big theme park expansion, merchandise, etc. This new game is not just a one off, DK is being taken seriously at the big N again, and that should be good news for fans everywhere.”

      1. Plus if it’s legitimately good, that’ll spawn memes anyway. I don’t like it when a show tries specifically to make jokes that will become memes

  1. Would be nice if it was a reboot of the Nelvana cartoon (with the character designs shown in this article), where the Crystal Coconut actually matters, rather than some banana hoard in one series, and DK getting his hands on mini Mario toys/Pauline in another series.

    1. Crappy Retro Studios?

      The Retro developed DK games are some odf the best platformers out there, egen better than anything Nintendo itself or the other second parties have developed…don’t tell me that the NSMB or kirby star allies are better games than DKC returns or Tropical Freeze.

    2. What’s with the disdain with an actual good developer? Too American or too Texan for ya? Or both? Or just genuinely don’t think they make good games? Or, worse case scenario, cuz the developer is in a state that’s not “woke” enough for ya? (Plz don’t be the last one. Cuz then I’ll know you’re an idiot.)

  2. ZIPPO, SHUT THE **** UP!!!

    Everytime a Nintendo rumor appears, Nintendo shut it down just to prove a point. (I think it’s corporate japanese thinking)

    You are not help anyone but yourself.
