Super Nintendo World is officially adding a Donkey Kong expansion, Nintendo has announced following months of speculation.
It’s a lot harder to keep things secret when they’re the size of a whole theme park and you need to build them in a public space, and it’s for that reason we’ve suspected Super Nintendo World was branching off to include a Donkey Kong area for a while. But now we have a bunch of new details straight from Nintendo, including the planned 2024 launch.
“I am very happy to be able to make the world of Donkey Kong a reality following the world of Mario,” said Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto in a statement. “I am looking forward to creating a thrilling Donkey Kong experience with the amazing team at Universal. It will take some time until it is completed, but it will be a unique area for not only people who are familiar with Donkey Kong games, but for all guests.”
