Donkey Kong 3D?[edit]

Take a look at this photo and this website. There's a rumor that a Donkey Kong game (Probably a Country game is in the works for the 3DS. Is it really real? Akfamilyhome 04:30, 11 March 2012 (EDT)

Boxart has the art of the Kongs from DKCR, it seem like a mistake. So for now this is a rumor.

Nintendo has confirmed...that this is not real. Well, at least we can say that there was a rumor of it. Akfamilyhome 04:52, 14 March 2012 (EDT)

In a Nintendo Direct states a 3DS remake of DKCR. User:Sammy05

Split the remakes and ports[edit]

Since this proposal will split ports of the same name with substantial new content starting with Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (Nintendo Switch) and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker (2018), I would think the case should apply to the rest of the Donkey Kong Country games. Certainly the Game Boy Advance versions as well as the Game Boy Color version of Donkey Kong Country all have new content that could be called fairly substantial, not unlike the Super Mario Advance series and Super Mario Bros. Deluxe. LinkTheLefty (talk) 02:34, 27 August 2018 (EDT)

If a port like New Play Control! Donkey Kong Jungle Beat can have an article, then surely these ports can too! I hope they'll consider making pages for these GBA/GBC ports. --Metalex123 (talk) 02:50, 27 August 2018 (EDT)

Ok, if there was a proposal to split ports with basically almost not new content, then why there is still no page for the donkey kong country port the gbc and the remakes of the trilogy for the gba after three years. If one is sure this games has more new content than the donkey kong courntry tropical freeze port for the Nintendo Switch, so I dont see any reason to not do it.

Stop considering Donkey Kong 64 an installment of the Donkey Kong country series[edit]

not part of the series 8-0
I find it bizarre that this wiki currently considers Donkey Kong 64 part of the Donkey Kong Country series. It does not bear the name Donkey Kong Country and plays very differently to every other Donkey Kong Country game with it being a 3D collectathon compared every single other game being 2D linear platformers. The Donkey Kong Land are far closer to being Donkey Kong Country games than this is yet those aren’t considered part of the series but this is. Furthermore there is no reference whatsoever to this even being part of the Donkey Kong Country series on this wiki’s page on DK64.

For those reasons above I there propose that this wiki stops considering Donkey Kong 64 a member of the Donkey Kong Country series.

Support[edit]

  1. NSY (talk) Per proposal
  2. Koopa con Carne (talk) Per proposal. I always wondered why this game was covered here. I could not find a proposal to classify Donkey Kong 64 as a DKC title in either proposal archives.
  3. Swallow (talk) Doesn't seem to be considered part of the series by Nintendo either.
  4. Results May Vary (talk) I agree with this proposal, especially the point brought up about how Donkey Kong Land games are a lot similar in style but are not considered Donkey Kong Country titles (and were the Game Boy parallels to their respective SNES game).
  5. Ray Trace (talk) Per all.
  6. TheFlameChomp (talk) Per all.
  7. Bazooka Mario (talk) Just stick it with a "related series" section, as a standalone game, and also put on those DK spinoffs as well.
  8. Hewer (talk) Per all, I'm surprised it wasn't already this way.

Comments[edit]

I do wanna point out that the production name "Donkey Kong World" implies at the very least an extension of "Country." Course, if we want a more definite answer, someone with a Twitter account (ie not me) could ask one of the Mayles brothers whether it is or not, since that'd be a "horse's mouth" situation.

Even that doesn't confirm anything for sure. Swallow's profile picture shown in NEO: The World Ends With You Swallow Rindo Kanade 17:02, February 12, 2022 (EST)
I'll assume by "that" you mean the name thing, because creator intent would be the absolute definer here. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 18:01, February 12, 2022 (EST)
What about Land 3 & Bros. 5/World 2? Otherwise, I agree. Donkey Kong 64 is also treated very much like a continuation of Rare's Country trilogy and should minimally be considered "related" like the aforementioned. LinkTheLefty (talk) 08:43, February 19, 2022 (EST)

DK64 again[edit]

Question.svg This talk page or section has a conflict or a question that needs to be answered. Please try to help and resolve the issue by leaving a comment.

The official Donkey Kong Portal (which only Nintendo UK seems to have) seems to list DK64 with the DKC games, having it between DKC3 and DKCR while the DKL games, KOS, classic arcade games, and ports are all listed separately. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 23:26, March 29, 2022 (EDT)

Split the four Rare remakes into their own articles[edit]

split 10-0
See a few sections above. While it is implied by a previous proposal these should be split anyway, my aim here is to make it an explicit goal. These are the GBC game and GBA games, for clarification.

  4. Results May Vary (talk) Per Hewer.
  5. Metalex123 (talk) Honestly I still find it surprising these versions never had pages tbh. Per all.
  6. LinkTheLefty (talk) Sure, let's make it official.

Comments[edit]

Interesting that this proposal be brought up, as I was just trying out this idea on Nintendo Wiki earlier today (and feel as if I'm being stalked because this proposal began on the same day :P). Assuming the proposal passes, is Mario Wiki going to reuse the articles I'm putting out on Nintendo Wiki or redo them ground-up? Results May Vary (talk) 22:58, April 6, 2022 (EDT)

I assure you it's a pure coincidence. They'll probably use the current SNES articles as a sort-of template, but not copypasting from another wiki. I don't roll like that. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 23:01, April 6, 2022 (EDT)
One plan I currently have is to use the titles "Donkey Kong Country 2" and "Donkey Kong Country 3" for the Game Boy Advance versions' articles & clarify in an About template that the original SNES articles can be found at Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! respectively (also, somewhat unrelated but Porple's first edits were taking Mario-related articles from Wikipedia; I have been advised against Wikipedia reuse before, but I feel slightly vindicated when pointing out that this is how Mario Wiki began). Results May Vary (talk) 23:08, April 6, 2022 (EDT)
I'm probably just going to have them with identifiers since the "without subtitles" ones have been used many times to refer to the SNES games. Doc von Schmeltwick (talk) 23:28, April 6, 2022 (EDT)
Honestly, good point Results May Vary (talk) 23:30, April 6, 2022 (EDT)
