The new Donkey Kong is Nintendo’s next crossover title

Following the success of Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle and Cadence of Hyrule, Nintendo has been looking to other IP to crossover with. The next one is Donkey Kong x Taiko no Tatsujin: Jungle Jams. My info comes from a source at Bandai Namco’s marketing team who left the company late last year, throwaway of course. He recalls that as long as things went according to plan, it would get an E3 reveal.

The game is essentially a spiritual sequel to Donkey Kong Jungle Beat that has platforming segments and random encounters and boss battles that play like the games in Taiko no Tatsujin: Rhythmic Adventure Pack, motion controls will be the advertised preferred way to play but will accommodate standard controls as well. Two new amiibo will launch alongside the game, one is of DK with the bongos and the other is of Don Wada and Katsu Wada together, both amiibo will do the same thing and unlock a new mode when scanned, my source said it would be a Time Attack.
