Nintendo is planning a big boost for his Donkey Kong franchise, including a new game, animation and world theme parks.
This is according to a historically reliable Nintendo insider Zippo, which he stated earlier a new Donkey Kong game is in development on Nintendo EPD, alongside other insiders and publications Nintendo Vita.
This week the insider said that the developing video game was part of a bigger push for Donkey Kong planned by Nintendo.
“A lot of people have told me that Donkey Kong is the next online franchise to follow Mario in Nintendo’s drive for its gaming franchises to become multimedia juggernauts,” they said.
“Donkey.” they don’t just get a new game, they get animation (Before it caught fire, my sources didn’t specify whether or not it was a movie or a show, only that an animation with DK characters was originally in operation). a large expansion of theme parks, goods, etc.
“This new game isn’t just an off, DK is taken seriously again in the big N, and that should be good news for fans everywhere.”
According to reports, Universal Studios has already advanced with plans for expand the Super Nintendo World theme park with a Donkey Kong theme world, and there is some evidence to suggest that this is the case.
As reported in VGC Super Nintendo World review, Super Nintendo World Japan – which opened in March – features a flat-bottomed door facing north of the park with a very DK-esque design.
President Nintendo Shuntaro Furukawa recently indicated that the company explores the potential of creating more animated content beyond the planned Super Mario movie, presenting its other game series.
The Super Mario movie is currently in development in the Despicable Me Illumination studio, with a previously scheduled 2022 release window.
Nintendo has historically been very protective of its intellectual property, only television projects and eco-friendly movies for the animated show Zelda and the movie Super Mario Bros. 30 years ago.
However, over the last decade, society has moved more and more to exploit its popular IP in various ways. The company The Nintendo Tokyo store will open in November 2019, and Super Nintendo World theme parks are set to open in Universal Studios locations around the world.
At its corporate management meeting in September last year, Nintendo said it had “already launched several other visual content projects.” alongside Mario Illumination’s film.
