Nintendo has announced that they're ceasing production on the 3DS, signaling the end of 31 years of full-fledged secondary handhelds that sat parallel to the main consoles. The Kongversation takes a nostalgic look back at them all, with a specific focus on the Donkey Kong Universe landmarks along the way.…
 
In the midst of all of the leakin' and L-is-Realin' over at Nintendo, a surprise early version of Yoshi's Island labeled "Super Donkey" has flown (literally) under the radar. The Kongversation discusses why this might be a long-forgotten attempt at reviving Donkey Kong months before Nintendo's fateful meeting with Rare!…
 
A longtime staffer at Rare, Chris Allcock left the studio in 2017 to pursue a freelance writing career... which meant writing for Rare. Helping shape the lore of numerous games, he's recently written the official Sea of Thieves novel "Athena's Fortune." He's now on our podcast. We will ask him questions. He will answer.…
 
Streamed live during Day 3 of DK Vine's "Not E3" Stream-A-Ganza, it's an E3 episode without the E3! What is the state of the hallowed annual gaming event now that we've had our first year without it since 1994? Featuring Jeff, Jeff's candlelight, Jeff's buzzing generator, Jeff's grandfather, Jeff's grandfather's oxygen machine, and the demon that c…
 
Diddy Kong Racing is forgotten. Well, not by those of us who were there in 1997, or those who had N64s after their heyday, or those who are students of history. But to the general gaming populace and younger Nintendo fans? It's barely a footnote. And, as a result, the actual history of the Donkey Kong Universe is blurred. Hyle and Jeff discuss how …
 
Finally! It's the Spotlight episode for Mario Golf (Game Boy Color), the RPG counterpart to the Nintendo 64 classic. Kid! Joe! Sherry! Azalea! And, for a few brief seconds, Donkey Kong! It's one of DK Vine's favorite Cameo Games... and one of our favorite games, period. Well, until Kiddy's Kitties knocks it off the list.…
 
When the culture around a series changes, either through a new creative direction or evolving popular tastes, an older generation of fans is usually left feeling cold. It eventually happens to every fandom, and Donkey Kong is no exception. Neither is Sonic the Hedgehog, and that's why Hyle is joined by Josh "The Geek Critique" Wallen to discuss the…
 
The voice of Donkey Kong. The composer of more games than we can name. Grant Kirkhope finally comes to the Kongversation to discuss how it felt becoming the first western composer in Super Smash Bros., farts, bathroom etiquette with Shigeru Miyamoto, whether or not he'd write for another Banjo-Kazooie, and why his rendition of Donkey Kong sounds li…
 
Playtonic's Chris Sutherland returns to the Kongversation! Last time, it was before the Yooka-Laylee Kickstarter campaign had even been announced. This time, with it and Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair both released, we discuss his experiences developing them, what's on the horizon for Playtonic, and then get him to do more of the silly voices…
 
Because we promised it, here it is: another deep-dive into the Nintendo Power catalogs of the 1990s. Come be amazed with us at the weird merchandise and the even weirder descriptions. You can even listen to this while you're pounding it out in the gym!By DK Vine
 
Gavin Price, Managing Director and Creative Lead of Playtonic Games, joins us on the Kongversation! With a little over a week before the release of the studio's Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair (https://www.playtonicgames.com/yooka-laylee-and-the-impossible-lair-pre-orders-live/), Gavin opens up about the inspirations behind their second game, …
 
On the seventh annual Talk Like a Pirate Day episode, Hyle and Jeff abstain from talking like pirates (for the most part). They do, however, finally make a ruling on Sea of Thieves' place in the tapestry of the shared universe of Rare and Donkey Kong. PK! Pepito Kong! PK! Pepito Kong is here!By DK Vine
 
It's another episode about a big Sea of Thieves update, but this one is different. Sea of Thieves' Anniversary Update is more akin to Sea of Thieves II (The Legend of Curly's Shores of Gold), dramatically enriching the game and making it the fully fleshed-out experience it was always destined to be. Hyle and Jeff discuss all the big changes, but mo…
