Donkey Kong Country and Donkey Kong Land Series Hit Virtual Console

More than 50% of this week's new releases are Donkey Kong games, thanks to Nintendo of America finally releasing Donkey Kong Country 1, 2, and 3 on Wii U Virtual Console and Donkey Kong Land 1, 2, and 3 on 3DS Virtual Console. With the launch of all three DKC games, our long national nightmare is over, as the trilogy were removed from the Wii Virtual Console two years ago. Now, all is right with the ape world as six Donkey Kong games from the '90s are now on Wii U and 3DS.

Presenting our first ever podcast recorded north of the border!
