Rool and his reptilian crew of Kremlings in this Super NES masterpiece! Play solo, compete with a friend or play cooperatively with a friend in more than 100 levels filled with collectibles and hidden bonus areas. With the help of Donkey Kong’s quirky family, animal friends and your fast reflexes, our dynamic duo will prove to be an unstoppable force.

Donkey Kong has been kidnapped and taken to Crocodile Isle. Only Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong can save the day.

Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console
Donkey Kong Land
Making a bet with Cranky Kong is never wise. In this Game Boy adventure, Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong must set off on another adventure to retrieve their banana hoard from the evil K. Rool’s clutches. Swing, roll, jump and barrel blast through four worlds that are swarming with returning and original enemies.
Donkey Kong Land 2
K. Rool has kidnapped Donkey Kong and he’s demanding the entire banana hoard as ransom! In this Game Boy classic, play as either Diddy Kong or Dixie Kong and take advantage of their unique abilities in more than 40 levels of nonstop platforming action. Keep an eye out for some friendly faces (and some shiny collectibles) to help you out.
Donkey Kong Land 3
Dixie Kong has been left behind to babysit her younger cousin, Kiddy Kong. But that won’t stop her from seeking adventure in this Game Boy game. Help Dixie Kong and Kiddy Kong through 36 Kremling-infested levels, each containing secret areas, bonus levels and collectibles. Maybe they’ll even find the entrance to the hidden Lost World!
