Nintendo Japan website updates Diddy Kong, possibly hinting at a new game
Nintendo of Japan’s website has improved the rendering of Diddy Kong, suggesting the Toughest Kong could return in a new title.
The official Nintendo website in Japan has upgraded the rendering of Diddy Kong, which could be a clue that a new game in the Donkey kong the series is in development. The most recent Donkey kong the game was Mario vs. Donkey Kong: The Tipping Stars for the Wii U, released in 2015.
The Donkey kong the franchise has been occupied in a number of ways outside of the main appearances. King K. Rool arrived at Ultimate smash, following years of fan demand. Mario + The Battle of the Rabbids Kingdom received a Donkey Kong-themed expansion pack, which brought Grant Kirkhope back as a songwriter. The highly acclaimed Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze was ported to the Nintendo Switch in 2018, adding Funky Kong as an easy mode in the process; it may be the most recent Donkey kong game for many fans, given the low user base of the Wii U.
It has been a long time since the Donkey kong the series has received a new main entry, but the return of the DK Crew could be near. According to Nintendo’s life, a Twitter user named BlueCatBanjo73 noticed that the official render of Diddy Kong had been updated on the Japanese Nintendo website. The rendering can be found in the Characters section in the Super Mario Bros. part of the site. The previous rendering was from Mario Party DS, which was released in 2007. The Mario Party DS render was used as recently as Visit of Mario Kart.
By the way, here’s a better side-by-side comparison of Diddy Kong’s new render.

The most noticeable difference between the two renderings of Diddy Kong is the detail of his fur. The Mario Party DS the render has fur that looks almost like clothes, with most of the detail being in the cuffs and ankles. The new rendering has a much softer and more realistic fur. This more closely matches Diddy’s appearance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. All of the characters with fur (like Donkey Kong and Duck Hunt Duo) have had body hair improvements to their character model, especially in relation to their appearance in Super Smash Bros. 3DS / Wii U.
It is possible that this new rendering means that a new Donkey kong The announcement of the video game is underway. The Switch’s 2021 schedule looks bare and it would be in character for Nintendo to suddenly announce a new one Donkey Kong Country during a Direct in mid-year and release it a month later. The rendering can also mean nothing. It’s possible that someone at Nintendo noticed how outdated the Diddy Kong model was and replaced it to better match its appearances in recent games. Fans have long been waiting for a new Donkey kong game, so any hint of a new entry is bound to excite people.
