Donkey Kong: not just movies, much more will feature Nintendo’s gorilla

The latest report from the site Giant Freakin Robot could confirm claims made earlier this year that Nintendo is planning a big push for the franchise Donkey Kong, including a new one game, a film and a theme park attraction.

Zippo, a historically reliable Nintendo insider, said in May that the Donkey Kong franchise would be Nintendo’s next target for extra-gaming expansion:

Donkey Kong and company aren’t just getting a new game, they’re getting a movie… a major theme park expansion, merchandising, etc. This new game isn’t just a one-off, DK is being taken seriously again by the big N, and that should be good news for fans around the world.

Donkey Kong: a movie about the upcoming series?

A few months after Zippo’s post – and after years of speculation – Nintendo e Universal have officially announced that they are doing a Donkey Kong expansion in the theme park Super Nintendo World in Osaka, Japan.

The world of Donkey Kong in the park of the Big “N” will open in 2024 and will include game-based roller coasters DKC, as well as interactive elements and themed products and food.

“I am very happy to be able to make the world of Donkey Kong a reality,” said the creator of Mario, Shigeru Miyamoto, in a statement at the time. “I’m looking forward to creating an exciting Donkey Kong experience with Universal’s fantastic team. It will take some time to complete, but it will be a unique area not just for people familiar with Donkey Kong games, but for all guests. ”

The film animation of Super Mario will come out on December 21, 2022, with actor Chris Pratt voicing the moustached plumber. Furthermore, Anya Taylor-Joy (Queen’s Gambit) was cast as Princess Peach, Charlie Day (Horrible Bosses) come Luigi e Jack Black come Bowser. The comedian Fred Armisen will give the voice to Cranky Kong. The original Donkey Kong arcade game turned 40 this summer, with little or no fanfare from its creators.
