Donkey Kong Country with classic Kong designs is unsettling

At least he has his tie

There are very few people out there who haven’t at least tried the original Donkey Kong Country. Nintendo and Rare have made it fairly easy over the years, with many copies of the SNES original circulating out there, as well as Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, and eShop ports.

The designs of the heroic duo Donkey and Diddy were instant hits, spawning a multitude of other games, ports, and appearances — but Spacepig22 managed to craft a quick look at what might have been. Using the models of the original Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Jr., they create an amazing mockup, but a slightly unsettling one all the same.

Long live cute Diddy Kong!
