Rumour: New animation and more Donkey Kong projects on the way

We have a surprising rumour related to the popular Donkey Kong franchise. It seems that a new animated Donkey Kong project could be on the way.

Following rumours that the team behind Super Mario Odyssey, Nintendo EPD, was working on a new title, now leaker Zippo, who has correctly leaked information from Nintendo in the past, has claimed that this IP will be transformed into a multimedia project.

Apparently, it would be an expansion of this series with a new animation, the Donkey Kong-inspired Super Nintendo World theme park part (which seems to be all but confirmed) and merchandise. We leave you with the published message:

Several people have told me that Donkey Kong is the next franchise after Mario that Nintendo will be pushing to make their game franchises into multimedia giants.

Donkey and company aren’t just getting a new game, they’re getting an animation (before this went down in flames, my sources didn’t specify if it was a movie or a series, just that an animation with DK characters was beginning development) a major theme park expansion, merchandise, etc. This new game isn’t just a one-off, DK is being taken seriously by the Nintendo again, and that should be good news for fans everywhere.
