Nintendo Japan website updates rendering of Diddy Kong and fans are very excited •

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.

My Nintendo Japan offers new physical Pokémon Snap rewards

My Nintendo in Japan continues to provide its members with cool physical products that make overseas fans jealous. Ahead of the release of New Pokémon Snap, two new themed rewards are now available. The first is a closing pouch with the logo of the Laboratory of Ecology and Natural Sciences (LENS) and costs 500 Platinum points.

The second element is a stationery set complete with two styles of letters and envelopes for 400 Platinum points. Best of all, envelopes can turn into photo frames!

No word on whether these products will make it west. Given that we finally saw the return of physical My Nintendo rewards to North America last year, that’s a possibility, but by no means a certainty. We’ll be sure to keep you posted if and when this happens.
