New PC game is meant to be played with the DK Bongos
Your move, Nintendo
Nintendo has released all sorts of interesting and unique peripherals in their time, and the DK Bongos are definitely part of that lineage. A drum accessory released for the GameCube, the DK Bongos let players bang out tunes in Donkey Konga and platform in a whole knew way with DK Jungle Beat. While Nintendo may have moved on from the DK Bongos decades ago, one developer thinks they’re still a viable input method.
The video above shows off Bull Beat, a new PC game that was developed with the DK Bongos in mind. Just take a quick look at the gameplay of Bull Beat and you’ll see what we mean. If this game was created without the DK Bongos in mind, fans would have instantly requested a mod to support them.
Best of all, this game is available to play for free right now! You can use a keyboard to play Bull Beat, but if you have a set of DK Bongos, you can hook those up to your PC and enjoy this game the way it’s meant to be played! Grab the download and get a closer look at Bull Beat here.
