Talk:Donkey Kong (game)

From the Super Mario Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Here's an idea...I dunno if pages like Super Nintendo and Game Boy Advance would really work out well in the Mario Wiki. What if those links were InterWiki'd to the corresponding Video Games Wiki pages. Plausible? Possible? Smart or not? - AgentSeethroo

Just saying[edit]

Im gonna eventualy start to work on it but so far the DK info is horrible we should have articles for:

  • the levels
  • construction site
  • Pauline's items
  • spring board
  • and moreΔ ΔTheuseD.PNGΔ Δ


Video game sequels and spin-offs deserve their own articles. They do not need to be merged. -- Son of Suns

Most certainly not. We are a serious wiki... but you can put that image on your user page or somewhere else in user space. YELLOWYOSHI398

if you want to play Donkey Kong here's a link the link is also on my user page MP8 DryBones.pngSuper Yoshi10YoshiMP8art.pngLookey ThisBlack Yoshi Move.gif

I'm playing it now here:[1] -KT

Leave this for the forums. Only things related to the improvement of the article should be on this page. FakeIco MCD.png MrConcreteDonkey


Why isn't this just Donkey Kong (game)? Is there a need to have it at arcade game? HyperToad@Donkey Kong (game)HT Sig.png

True that. And fix your sig, HT. My Bloody Valentine

Fixed. Anyway, we'll be needing some input from others. HyperToad@Donkey Kong (game)HT Sig.png On a side note, I feel that the DK 64 info should be moved out of trivia.

The same rule applies here. I don't see why it isn't just "(game)". — Stooben Rooben 13:16, 9 May 2008 (EDT)
If there is no other game called "Donkey Kong" ("Donkey Kong Jr."), then it should definitely be moved. Time Questions 16:29, 9 May 2008 (EDT)

Featured Status[edit]

This article looks like its ready be nominated for a featured article. Any suggestions to improve it first? YosharioYoshi wearing mario's hat.jpg

Well, it should probably look more like this first: Donkey Kong. -- Son of Suns (talk)


I've been wondering recently about how many Mariowiki users know the fact that Nintendo got sued after creating Donkey Kong. Should the article say something about that? Meta KnightonHalberd.jpg Commander Code-8 35px

I've just discovered it was already there but I think it could be expanded. Meta KnightonHalberd.jpg Commander Code-8 35px


Im just wondering,but where is the reference to other games section?--UM3000 E-102 Gamma.png

Release Dates[edit]

The ports and remakes section should include release dates, at least the year they were released in Japan.Jdrawer 19:15, 3 February 2012 (EST)

RadarScope... And Popeye?[edit]

It is included in this article that the original RadarScope cartridges were used for the Donkey Kong games; however, it does not state that Nintendo were commisioned to make a Popeye game, and that the creator of this game used the idea of a love triangle in this one. Olive became Pauline, Popeye became Jumpman, and Bluto become DK. I think we should add this, but I wanted to see what you guys thought. Jdrawer 19:18, 3 February 2012 (EST)

Intelligent Systems[edit]

I'm not sure if this would be considered valid information, since it's unsourced, but this excerpt from Wikipedia's article on Intelligent Systems would explain why the company is not mentioned in-game:

"Intelligent Systems entered the video game industry as a one-man team, named Toru Narihiro, who was hired by Nintendo to port over Famicom Disk software into the standard ROM-cartridge format that was being used by the NES outside Japan. The team soon became an auxiliary program unit for Nintendo (like HAL Laboratory originally) that provided system tools and hired people to program, fix, or port Nintendo-developed software. Thus much of the team's original discography contains minuscule contributions to several big Nintendo R&D1 and Nintendo EAD titles." Mario4Ever

Am i the only one to notice this?[edit]

that donkey kong and Mario bros are completely different games? even the main character is different, THEY HAVE A DIFFERENT NAME also, all the elements of donkey kong are missing in Mario bros the Mario, AHUM, mpmanhas not looked anything like the Mario we know until the Mario VS donkey kong series that means that Nintendo has put no effort in tiieng these games togheter so why did we assume that they are the same again?

>implying Nintendo hasn't long established Jumpman and Mario as more or less the same for years to this point
Also, chances are you're the "only one" who noticed because I'd imagine it's presumed common knowledge. ExdeathIcon.png Lord G. matters. ExdeathIcon.png 19:44, 7 July 2015 (EDT)

GBA/Virtual Console vs. NES/Arcade[edit]

So I was wondering about a certain detail: Are the GBA and Virtual Console versions modeled DIRECTLY after the NES version, which lacked the 50m stage only due to technical limitations, or do they restore it since they're on more advanced gaming systems than the Nintendo Entertainment System? I mean, Donkey Kong 64 featured a playable version of the game with all four of the original stages, so it would be silly only putting three stages on the one game for later consoles. 15:17, 7 July 2015 (EDT)

The VC and GBA releases are based on the NES version. --Glowsquid (talk) 19:54, 7 July 2015 (EDT)
