Nintendo held a Nintendo Direct today and one of the announcement was a remake of the Gameboy classic Mario vs. Donkey Kong. I have been a fan of this series for a while. The original Gameboy Donkey Kong is one of my favorite games of all time.
I got it for Christmas one year and thought that it was just a port of the original arcade game. Imagine my surprise once I beat the original arcade game and discovered that this is a full fledged game with tons of new levels and puzzles to complete. The Mario vs. Donkey Kong series was a spiritual successor to that game and were really fun puzzle games.
This version of the game is fully remade from the ground up and features local co-op play as well.
Mario vs. Donkey Kong arrives on the Nintendo Switch on February 16th 2024.
