12screenThe dust hasn’t even settled from out last character confirmation, Little Mac, and we already have our next character: Donkey Kong’s little buddy, Diddy Kong. Diddy Kong was one of the most acrobatic characters in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and I expect he’ll stay that way for the new game!

Back in Brawl, arguably Diddy Kong’s most notable feature were the peanut-guns he carried. They even had mild aiming capabilities. His guns will certainly return here, as will his jetpack. On the other hand, none of his screenshots showcase any new moves. Fans will have to wait, I guess.

While the Diddy Kong news might not be as exciting as Little Mac, there is a second purpose to this: to promote the new Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze game for the Wii U, which was released today in North America. Diddy Kong is also playable in that game!


Diddy Kong is the 24th confirmed character for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS, and the second Donkey Kong character.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS will be released late this year, and will be released for said consoles. It will be the fourth game in the Super Smash Bros. series.

So, Donkey Kong fans, do you like this news?
