Everybody’s favorite happy-go-lucky hero is back with his Bongo Barrel, bananas, and nephew Diddy Kong to save the day! You can always trust Donkey Kong to barrel into a fight with no regard for his own safety. His inquisitive nature led him to explore the open rift that appeared between worlds, when Kaos’ evil Sky Eater was created. When he heard Mags’ distress signal cross the breach, he leapt at the chance for adventure. Donkey Kong fell into Skylands, ready to lend a hand fighting evil to keep all worlds safe. Alongside his arch-enemy Hammer Slam Bowser, Donkey Kong was given a new Rift Engine SuperCharged vehicle called Barrel Blaster, to aid him in their cause. This hairy hero has a brilliant suite of melee moves that is sure to bring down the house. Explosions, spikey barrels, falling ladders, and a helping hand from Diddy Kong on his jetpack will see the bad guys flee in terror! Follow the Pointy Preparations Path to heal yourself while in Super Donkey Kong mode, to keep your strength up in a tough fight.
