The image of Diddy Kong has been updated on Nintendo’s Japanese website, sparking rumors that the pint-sized hero could make a comeback in the not-so-distant future.
As spotted by eagle eyes BlueCatBanjo73 and reported by our friends at Nintendo Life, Diddy has had a makeover, even though all has been quiet on the Kong front since the re-release of Tropical Freeze on Nintendo Switch a few years ago.
Now, however, Nintendo Japan has updated Diddy’s stock image on the official website, replacing the latest render – which was taken from Mario Party DS – with a new one. Interestingly, Diddy wears the same pose and outfit.
Does this definitely confirm that something new is on the way? Is that how it is. But there’s no denying that it’s an odd time for a random update, and can indeed be a devious sign that there’s something on the horizon, like a new Mario Party game. For now, though, all we can do is watch this space, I guess.
By the way, here’s a better side-by-side comparison of Diddy Kong’s new render.
