Donkey Kong (alternatively Game Boy Donkey Kong, and Donkey Kong '94 in early development) is a Game Boy game released in 1994 by Nintendo. The game starts out with the premise of being a straight remake of the original 1981 Donkey Kong arcade game. However, this game qualifies as both an extension and a standalone title; it features 97 stages beyond its original premise. Donkey Kong is the first game in the Mario franchise with specialized support for colored graphics on the Super Game Boy peripheral for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Its Super Game Boy border resembles the arcade cabinet of the original Donkey Kong arcade game. The game has slight audio enhancements on the Super Game Boy: Pauline's distress cry sounds closer to a realistic cry for help (the Super NES's sound chip supports the inclusion of voice samples), and the credits theme was also enhanced. Donkey Kong is one of the earlier re-releases on the Nintendo 3DS's Virtual Console, where it was released internationally in June 2011. It was released in South Korea in February 2016.
