Diddy Kong Returns to Super Smash Bros.

Celebrating the North American and European release of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for Wii U, Donkey Kong’s right-hand monkey Diddy Kong rejoins the fray for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS!


\”Pic of the day. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is out now in Europe and North America! …And to celebrate, Diddy Kong joins the battle!!\”

Sakurai may have removed random tripping from Smash once and for all, but Diddy Kong still has the means to make you feel to your knees. Diddy Kong joins the ranks of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS with his Brawl moveset intact, from his banana pull to his taunts.

However, Sakurai has given the chimp some tweaks on his established kit:


\”We\’ve increased Diddy Kong’s flexibility this time. This picture shows how far his punches stretch during his strong side attack.\”

If you had trouble getting in on Diddy Kong before, looks like it\’ll be harder than ever. Diddy Kong will keep you out with more range on the ground and possibly more range in the air, too, depending on how much this new-found flexibility is embraced throughout his moveset.

Diddy Kong is armed to the teeth with peanut popguns, jetpack barrels, and slippery bananas. He’s already an extraordinary force, so his enhanced moves will surely give him a scary boost in effectiveness.



How do you think Diddy Kong will stack up against the new members of the Smash crew? Sound off in the comments on this veteran reveal.
