Duck, Dodge and Dive From Incoming Coins With This Donkey Kong Money Box

Bank on it

Saving damsels in distress is hard work. Jumping over barrels, defeating a villainous gorilla, it’s all in a day’s work for Mario. Now you can take a reminder of the day job home and have somewhere safe to keep your hard earned cash with the Donkey Kong: Keep Rollin’ Money Box, available at Merchoid.

Stylised after the instantly recognisable Donkey Kong arcade machine, this 30cm tall money box allows you to emulate DK’s barrels with your coins, whilst storing them in a safe location once they reach the bottom. We can neither confirm nor deny that coins are easier to jump over than barrels.

The Donkey Kong: Keep Rollin’ Money Box is available to order here: https://www.merchoid.com/product/donkey-kong-keep-rollin-money-box/

Donkey Kong Country's First Level Recreated in Banjo-Kazooie

Donkey Kazooie

The modding community continues to come up with all sorts of crazy ideas for game mods, and the latest combines two of RARE's greatest. Someone has taken the first Donkey Kong Country level and recreated it in Banjo-Kazooie. The end result is pretty damn impressive, and makes me want to go back and play both of these games!

Thanks to cm30 for the heads up!

DK Bongos used to beat Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Sound the war drum!

People love to give themselves a challenge, and when it comes to Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, one fan was striving to really up the ante. He decided to tackle the entire game with the DK Bongos. Sekiro provides enough challenge for players in and of itself, but playing with the DK Bongos is madness!

UK authorities warn the public of black market 'Donkey Kong' ecstasy after death of a 13-year-old boy

Don't do drugs...ever

Here's an absolutely horrible story for you. A group of people out there have taken to creating ecstasy that is shaped like Donkey Kong's head. Somehow, one of those pills made it into the hands of 13-year-old Carson Price, and he has since passed away. With police suspecting the ecstasy as the cause of the death, and also confirming another case where a man went to the hospital after taking one of the pills, they've released the following statement to the public.

“The community are telling us that they have growing concerns about this drug and we want to do all we can to make people aware of the dangers.

Our advice to all members of the public who may currently have this drug in their possession, is to not take it. If you have already taken Donkey Kong or any other illegal drug and feel unwell, please seek medical help immediately.

We want everyone to be aware of the devastating consequences that drugs can have and we’re especially asking all parents to speak to their children and to share our message.”

New Donkey Kong Country 2 102% speedrun record set

A RARE record

Watch Donkey Kong Country 2 | 102% - 1:26:28 from V0oid on www.twitch.tv

A brand-new 102% speedrun record for Donkey Kong Country 2 has been set by V0oid. He managed to pull off the run in 1:26:28, which is 9 seconds faster than his previous time. Anyone who follows speed-running knows that shaving 9 seconds off the top time is a pretty huge achievement. How did V0oid manage to get such a better run? Turns out there's a new invisible beetle glitch that's turning the DKC2 speedrunning scene inside-out, and it's obviously leading to some big shake-ups!

Fan-made Mario and Donkey Kong display created for Fallas Week

Fallas Week an event held in the city of Valencia. For the event, locals come together to build displays of prominent and historical figures. The displays are then given awards by a committee, and then the festivities end when everyone gathers to burn all their creations to the ground. No, that's not a joke!

I'm just showing a very small snippet of the Mario-related display, as this one in particular is super political. If you're okay with strong political opinions any any/all sides, you can click over and check out the full piece here.

We're very sad to report that Aron Tager, the voice of Cranky Kong in the Donkey Kong Country animated series, has passed away. Tager left us at the age of 84, and as far as we know, he passed away due to natural causes. Our hearts go out to all those impacted by the loss of Mr. Tager. May he be remembered by Nintendo fans for many, many years to come.
