The relatively unknown DK: King of Swing for Game Boy Advance received a sequel on DS in 2007. The game is now available on Wii U Virtual Console.
You can grab the game now for $ 9.99, but know that when it released, we weren't very fond of it. It released during a time when we still had multiple reviewers tackle the game game. We gave it a 5.75 and a 6.75. You can read an excerpt from Bryan Vore's 5.75 review below.
Challenge mode offers a few uninspired minigames like banana catching and log hopping. Multiplayer consists of four-player offline barrel races and speed climbing runs, but I can’t see any group of friends tolerating these games for more than five minutes. In the end, Nintendo would have been smart to make a new Donkey Kong Country rather than revisit this franchise. DK’s latest adventure is neither “fun” nor “easy to play,” despite what the back of the box may claim.
If you really loved King of Swing, however, this might be just what you're looking for.
Not every game released on the Virtual Console has a legacy of praise behind it, but I appreciate Nintendo trying to get as much as they can up on the store. It does make you wonder why this made the cut ahead of other desirable DS games – like any of the Pokémon titles.
