Nintendo Wii Media | Smash Update: Diddy Kong Joins the Smash Line-up

By Jorge Ba-oh 22.08.2007 23

The excellent updates just don't stop on the Super Smash Bros. Dojo, with the Kong's second in command, Diddy, joining the playable list.

Donkey Kong's pal has finally joined the battle! Unfortunately, screenshots fail to truly capture the way he moves.

He scrambles around the battle, using whimsical fighting moves while wielding both his Rocketbarrel Boost and Peanut Pop Gun!

Be sure to stick around for updates...

Wasn't expecting this update! Wow - looking mighty fine! Can't wait to see how this little critter will handle, methinks much like he did in DK64.

Awesome! The Rocketbarrel boost and Peanut Pop Gun should be fun to use, just like in DK64.

Good times.

Smilie OMG! OMG! OMG! Diddy's going to be in it! I can't wait, this is going to be awesome! Smilie

All we need now is Dixie, but somehow I don't think it's going to happen. Smilie

wooo bout time too.
They finally have someone from donkey kong games other than donkey kong lol

Goody, now we can beat him up.Smilie

Yey! Wanted him in the game ever since Smash Brothers Melee was announced. Awesome.

Nooooo!! Smilie What a waste of character space! Smilie

Oh well... at least I get to beat him up now... I'd rather have Tingle to be honest. He's a leg. I'm currently awaiting these characters to be announced, I just know they'll be in it:

Birdo
Waluigi
Koopa
Goomba
Toad
Toadette
Daisy (as a seperate character)
Waluigi again
Koopa Bones
Kamek
Petey Pirhana
Bowser Jr
Shy Guy
Waluigi.

you forgot sonic, or is that just Mushroom Kingdom characters?

Smilie WOW! I wasen't expecting that! The updates just keep getting better! I was never a fan of Diddy, or the DK series for that matter. But I'm glad they put him in there. Any new character is good.

No, not nessecarily Mushroom Kingdom characters, just Mario Party gae characters. They're everywhere these days. I detest them Smilie

The sad thing is, I was. I'm also expecting Waluigi, you know? & the entire cast of the Mario Party series.

Great addition of course, I like the character model, nice cap, I have one like that myself. It will interesting to see what moves he has at his disposal, no doubt barrels will be involved somehow.{LS]

i hope he faster then Donkey Kong :b he have to be

Yay, I'm sure he'll be a nice addition to the crew. And I don't want to see Waluigi, Birdo, etc etc. Those poor souls never had their own games or played a big part in any.

Remember, this is Super Smash Bros, not Mario Smash Bros.

them being assist trophies is a possibility.

I wouldn't mind having Waluigi. It would be interesting.

I can't believe how these updates have you guys so hyped. Smilie

For the record, this is the first I've reacted to. Only because Diddy Kong really is a slight shock.

YAAAAAAY!!

Finally, Its about time diddy kong showed up. Dixie Kong would be cool too, but thats doubtful, if a girl shows up, it will be tiny, the stupid, and annoying.Smilie

I think Wario and Walugi will definately be in it, although i don't really care if they are or not. Still waiting for Dark Samus.Smilie

Despite the cost of living, its quite popular.

Diddy Kong's one cool dude, but I really want Dixie, my favorite Kong, in Brawl. Smilie

Um, where have you been this whole time? Wario's been known since the first trailer was revealed. Smilie

Great update, I hope he uses the peanut shooters that he used in DK64.


Mike Gee of iZINE said, "...The Verve, as he [Richard Ashcroft] promised, had become the greatest band in the world. Most of the critics agreed with him. Most paid due homage. The Verve were no longer the question mark or the clich. They were the statement and the definition."

hmph Smilie

That's certainly an unexpected update. Shows that Rare and Nintendo still get along okay.

Donkey Kong is actually owned by Nintendo. Rare didn't really have to approve anything.

man..... diddy is ok, but then they're gonna make that other girl kong, and maybe one of the bad guys of one of the games.

i would rather they have other characters made besides him. but i guess its kinda stupid to have only one "kong" on ssbb, so they have to at least make one more

You see, Master Cheif gets up, has his cup of coffee, and starts his day just like any other humanoid. It's what he does in his day that makes him so FREAKIN' AWSOME!
