Video Game Ad of the Day: Donkey Kong Country (Game Boy Advance)

Donkey Kong Country GBA
Nintendo effectively turned the Game Boy Advance into a SNES port dumping ground, but it’s safe to say that many of the ports were actually worse than their original versions. Probably the most offensive case was Donkey Kong Country, which was significantly brightened up – to the point where it looks absolutely awful on anything but the original, non-lit GBA console.


Donkey Kong Country TV series returns to DVD in North America

Back in the 1990s, Nintendo licensed Donkey Kong Country out for a CG animated TV show produced by France 2 and Nelvana. The result was not pretty, and most people have tried to forget about it.

However, those of you with a morbid curiosity may be excited to know that a new DVD featuring three episodes from the short-lived series will be released in North America in October. The DVD is called Donkey Kong Country: Raiders of the Lost Banana and will set you back $US10.

This may be the first release of the series on DVD in North America, but a couple of single episode DVDs and one collection have been released in Australia and can be found for cheap.
