Nintendo have confirmed that the pistol wielding chimp, Diddy Kong, will return in the next iteration of the Super Smash Bros series.
The announcement was made to coincide with the release of Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze on Wii U last Friday.
Diddy’s appearance seems largely unchanged from Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Peanut guns, jetpacks, and a general vibe of mischief permeate his new character page on the Super Smash Bros website.
Personally, I hope the Kong Kid goes through a few substantial tweaks. His Forward + B move, for example, always felt somewhat naff, surely there’s a more fitting manoeuvre for the chimp than a forward flip?
Otherwise it’s great to see the cheeky Banana scoffing monkey back in action. But who will be the next reveal? Yoshi. My money is on Yoshi.
