    Synopsis

    Get pumped for more ground-pounding, barrel-blasting, banana-hording action in the next installment of the Donkey Kong Country series. A gang of marauding Vikings are after the banana hoard and you must join Donkey Kong and his friends Dixie and Diddy to save their home. A bushel of new gameplay elements and features await as you join gaming's greatest ape in an action-packed adventure through palm-tree dotted tropics and ice-cold frozen environments. Are you ready to take on intimidating foes and defend the banana stash with the most legendary primate of them all?

    Reclaim Donkey Kong Island or bust. Journey through five islands with a variety of stages that include underwater areas and frozen terrain with Diddy and Dixie Kong, both playable characters who offer unique gameplay experiences. Donkey Kong's traditional moves return with a few new additions that help you explore the environment and unlock secrets, including a plucking system that lets you pull items right from the ground. Every level features twisting, turning and transforming scenery that is brilliantly displayed with the dynamic rotating camera for a thrilling gameplay experience that sucks you right into the banana-craving adventure. Get your friends in on the wild and wooly action in a cooperative multiplayer mode that lets you share the fun. The jungle is yours and no menacing Viking will keep you from going ape-wild to protect it.
