Donkey Kong Country 3 is a 2005 remake of Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! for the Game Boy Advance. It features a new world and new soundtrack composed by David Wise.

Story[edit]

The story is the same as the original's. Unlike the first two Donkey Kong Country games, the remake has no opening sequence, a distinction of which is shared with Super Mario Advance.

Months after the events of Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, the Kongs were back at DK Island, still celebrating their victory over the K. Rool and the Kremlings. Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong often slung up a hammock, played some music, and drank banana milkshakes while soaking up the sun. Dixie often joined alongside them.

One morning, Dixie found that Diddy was not in his room. This surprised her as it was unusual for Diddy to be up so early. She found a note on a table that read:

Dear Dixie, Gone exploring the islands with DK, Back tomorrow! --Diddy

Dixie recalled a few other times where Donkey Kong and Diddy had the same plan, and every time the two Kongs would never travel farther than the beach. Dixie went to look for them at the beach, soon realizing that it was too quiet for them to be nearby. As the sun set, Dixie went to bed. The next morning, Dixie checked Diddy's place and found that he had still not returned. She began worrying over what trouble that Donkey Kong and Diddy got into. The entire day passed and the Kongs still did not return. The third morning, Donkey Kong and Diddy had still not returned, so Dixie went to the southern shores of DK Island and swam to the nearest mainland at the Northern Kremisphere, looking for them.

Dixie briefly visited Wrinkly Kong, who confirmed that she saw Donkey Kong and Diddy pass, but Wrinkly did not know where they went. She suggested that Donkey Kong and Diddy visited Funky's beach shop. As Dixie left, Wrinkly asked her to search for Banana Birds along the way.

When Dixie visited Funky, he was busy working on an invention, making use of the various unusual items in the shop. Funky explained to Dixie that Kiddy was the only visitor that he had all week. He pointed across to Kiddy, who was chewing on an old spare tire. Dixie agreed to take Kiddy along with her, and they left. Funky told them to look out for any random items which he can make use of, and he also told them to visit the Brothers Bears for help.1

As they traveled through the worlds, Dixie and Kiddy encounter different Kremlings than before. At the end of Mekanos, the Kongs first encounter KAOS, who was believed to be the new leader of the Kremling Krew at the time. Later during their adventure, Dixie and Kiddy encounter KAOS again at Kastle Kaos, which is at the end of Kaos Kore. During the battle, it is revealed that KAOS was a puppet of Baron K. Roolenstein all along. After defeating Baron K. Roolenstein, KAOS breaks down and releases Donkey Kong and Diddy. It is revealed that they were trapped to be used as a power source.

K. Rool trapped in an eggshell in the final ending

The Kongs eventually discover the lost world, Krematoa, where they meet the local Brothers Bear, Boomer. Dixie and Kiddy must recover the five cogs found in each level of Krematoa and return them to Boomer's Bomb Shelter. Boomer inserts them on a machine, which causes the Knautilus to rise from the center lake. Dixie and Kiddy enter it and engage in a second boss fight against Baron K. Roolenstein. The Kongs defeat him again, but Baron K. Roolenstein manages to escape again.

After acquiring every DK Coin, the Kongs return to Funky's Rentals, and he builds the Gyrocopter for them. With the Gyrocopter, the Kongs can access the remaining few secret caves to the last of the Banana Birds. After freeing every Banana Bird, they carry the Kongs up in the sky to the Banana Queen. All of the Banana Birds sing to destroy the evil barrier that imprisoned the Banana Queen. Dixie and Kiddy's adventure ends with the Banana Queen chasing after Baron K. Roolenstein and dropping a large eggshell on him.

The remake's start-up sequence might show how Donkey Kong and Diddy were captured because it starts underwater from the perspective of a diving mask; the Knautilus suddenly charges into the Nintendo logo, then the Rare logo, and closes in and "swallows" the camera. The next shot shows the title screen and the Knautilus partially submerged in the waters of the Northern Kremisphere.

1 - At the very start of the game itself, Dixie goes to Wrinkly's Retreat. During the start of the game, neither Wrinkly nor Funky mention Donkey Kong and Diddy. During the first interaction with Funky, he does not mention for Dixie to be on the lookout for random items, nor does he mention the Brothers Bears. This information is found in the instruction booklet only.

Arich Arich Arich is a large, red spider and the boss of Kremwood Forest. It hangs on a thread of web and has a pattern of bouncing up and down. Arich attacks by spitting venom at Dixie and Kiddy.

Meanwhile, his head tries to blast the Kongs with a quick laser. Kaos Karnage
Bleak in Donkey Kong Country 3 for Game Boy Advance. Bleak Bleak appears in the snowy mountain, K3, and his battle consists of a snowball fight.

The Kongs can attack Bleak by throwing snowballs at his amulet. Bleak's House
Kroctopus in Donkey Kong Country 3 for Game Boy Advance. Kroctopus Kroctopus is a giant green sea monster who replaces Barbos as the boss of Razor Ridge in the Game Boy Advance version. The Kongs cannot directly attack Kroctopus, so they must instead stand at a bomb to trick Kroctopus into extending one of its clawed tentacles at it. The more times Kroctopus is hit, the redder and angrier it gets. Kroctopus is defeated once it claws at bombs enough times. Kroctopus Krush

Differences in the Game Boy Advance version[edit]

A new level seen in Pacifica, known as Stormy Seas.

Gameplay changes[edit]

The new area, Wrinkly's Retreat.
  • Players are now able to save at any time.
  • The game introduces the new area, Pacifica, which is the seventh world of the game, located between Razor Ridge and Kaos Kore. The world carries six new levels, as well as all new Bonus Level locations. The boss of this area is Barbos, who was the boss of Razor Ridge in the original game and has been replaced with a new boss, Kroctopus, in this version.
  • The Brothers Bear Barnacle has also been relocated to the new Pacifica world, with the replacement Lake Orangatanga bear being a new Brothers Bear named Bachelor. As such, new objects, such as the box of chocolates, have been added to trade amongst the Brothers Bears. Some items must also be traded differently.
  • Wrinkly Kong is now only located in Wrinkly's Retreat, which replaces the first Wrinkly's Save Cave from the original, between Funky's Rentals and Bazaar's General Store. Banana Birds are kept in this area. All other Save Caves are replaced with Cranky's Dojo.
  • Dixie's Photo Album was entirely scrapped, despite the previous two GBA games having a comparable scrapbook. No cast roll replaces it, and as such, most enemies and the Animal Buddies are not named in-game whatsoever.
  • Like in the first two Game Boy Advance remakes for the series, the supporting Kongs have Bonus Games for the Kongs to complete, this time for Banana Birds. Funky Kong has four new Bonus Games, all of which must be cleared to get his Banana Bird (although the types of games available depends on how many vehicles the Kongs can rent), while Cranky (whose Dojo replaces all the other Wrinkly's Save Caves from the original Donkey Kong Country 3) and Swanky (whose Bonus Game and locale are replaced) both have a single Bonus Game.
  • After beating Mekanos and Cotton Top Cove, the player has the option of playing through either K3, Razor Ridge, or Pacifica to progress, although they all must be completed to beat the game.
  • There are now five extra Banana Birds to collect, increasing the total to twenty, and five more DK Coins to collect, making that total forty-six.
  • Anytime after completing Mekanos, the player can visit Bramble to earn his Banana Bird. Originally, he would only give it to the Kongs if they gave him the Flupperius Petallus Pongus.
  • Similar to Donkey Kong Land III, when a Koin is defeated, their DK Coin is automatically collected. In addition, when a DK Coin is collected, it tells the player how many out of the total amount they have.
  • In the original version, after defeating each boss (except in Kaos Kore and Krematoa, where this applies after beating Rocket Rush instead), the player can take a one-way trip from those levels back to the world's entrance or the main world map. This is only true in Cotton Top Cove in the GBA version.
  • Squirt has more attacks and has been made harder to defeat.
  • Baron K. Roolenstein's final battle only gives bear coins. As such, all the DK Coins and Banana Birds can be collected before facing him. If this is done, the scene where the Banana Birds fly the Kongs to the Banana Queen, dispel the barrier, and allow her to take revenge on K. Rool does not play until immediately after Knautilus is completed.
  • The final level, Rocket Rush, has an increased difficulty, as red Buzzes damage the Rocket Barrel when touched, and the Star Barrel is removed.
  • A previously unused enemy, Kracka, appears in this game, exclusively in the Pacifica stage Stormy Seas.

Graphical changes[edit]

  • As with Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, in the original, when Dixie does her Helicopter Spin, Kiddy would float behind her, motionless. In the remake, he somersaults behind her.
  • The last level in Lake Orangatanga, Belcha's Barn, which takes place inside of a mill, had a factory background in the original SNES version for some reason. The background was changed in the Game Boy Advance version to a mill background to match with where the battle takes place.
  • Swanky Kong wears the same attire that he wears in Donkey Kong Country 2, unlike in the original, where his outfit is different.
  • The world maps have been redrawn, and they are zoomed in more than in the original.
    • When Knautilus is unlocked in the Super Nintendo version, the background of stages in Krematoa turns red. However, this does not happen in the Game Boy Advance version.
    • The outside of Kastle Kaos is redesigned, and it no longer has a pink glow emitting from its highest tower.
  • The houses that the Brothers Bears live in, as well as the bears themselves, have been redesigned; the most notable change is Blizzard, who in this version of the game is a grizzly bear as opposed to a polar bear.

Sound changes[edit]

  • The original soundtrack of the game, which is notably darker in tone in most of the levels, has been replaced by a completely new, lighter-toned soundtrack composed by David Wise, who composed the soundtrack of the first two Donkey Kong Country games, but only had a limited involvement with the soundtrack of the third on the Super Nintendo, which was in majority composed by Eveline Fischer.
    • Arich now has a different battle theme than the other bosses. He shares this theme with Kroctopus. Both K. Rool battles use the same battle theme as the other bosses.
    • The same track now plays for all of the Brothers Bear houses, meaning that Blue no longer has a unique theme. This same track plays in Funky's Rentals, Wrinkly's Retreat, Swanky's Dash, and when meeting the Banana Queen.
  • The death and end-of-level music are removed. Music which is heard when the player loses a life only plays in the original SNES version, depending on the level.
  • As in other GBA remakes, the Kong noises are different. Notably, Kiddy Kong makes a much louder, higher-pitched sounding cry when defeated as opposed to a low-pitched cry in the original.
  • Sneeks now make the same sound as Neeks from Donkey Kong Country 2 as opposed to their own sound in the original SNES version.
  • Most enemies have reused sound effects from the two previous Game Boy Advance remakes, such as Kobbles having the same voice as Kritters from Donkey Kong Country.

Other changes[edit]

  • A completely new intro sequence and title screen have been created for this game.
  • In the original, the Bonus Barrels either shoot the Kongs upward or make a warp sound and the "B" shrinks. In the GBA version, similar to the other two game remakes, only the latter happens.

  • "You wouldn't have brought... Oh, I can see you haven't. Never mind."
  • "I-I'm afraid you're a little early for the party, Dixie/Kiddy/Kongs. That's if anybody bothers to come at all."

References to other games[edit]

Development[edit]

As with the other Donkey Kong Country remakes on the Game Boy Advance, the Donkey Kong Country 3 remake was coded from scratch.[1] Though the developers tried to be as true to the original version as possible, some changes were made to improve some mechanics and the level design. Ellie's and the toboggan controls were specifically cited by Rare employee Paul Rahme as elements the team tried to improve.[1]

At one point, Eveline Fischer's original soundtrack was meant to be included alongside David Wise's score. However, time and space limitations prevented it from being included.[1]

Staff[edit]

David Wise composed the whole GBA soundtrack.

Promotion[edit]

In celebration of the Game Boy Advance release of Donkey Kong Country 3, Nintendo of America held the "Where's DK? Search Event" which began on October 31, 2005.[2] By going to whereisdonkeykong.com and other participating websites, participants could follow clues that helped them find Donkey Kong. Each time Donkey Kong was located by a participant, Nintendo donated one dollar to the Animal Protection Institute's Primate Sanctuary.[3] Up to ten-thousand dollars were given to the institution. The event ended on Novemember 21, 2005. In addition, an online, Flash-powered game, Barrel-Blastapalooza, was released on the Nintendo-hosted donkeykongcountry.com website to promote the game. The website's servers were eventually shut down along with the Flash game.
