Diddy Kong Racing U Could be Coming in 2013

Boy, are there a lot of rumors floating around. Zelda U, Xbox, last week brought us Smash Bros. Could there possibly be any more?

Well, apparently Diddy Kong Racing for Wii U is coming sometime this year. (Diddy Kong Racing, Wii U)

Hard to tell
Is this rumor true? Rumor votes 11

I bet it's so they can test things before commiting to MarioKart U,it will be better than SASRT.

If this rumour is confirmed I'm going to lose my effing mind! It seems plausible despite the source (GameFAQs), Nintendo have trusted Monster Games with several titles before including Pilotwings and Excite Trucks so it's either true or a well thought through hoax.

If they do, I hope its this time not filled with a bunch of generic characters. Sonic & All Stars RT has given me enough racing with characters I've never heard of.

Lol!^^ DKR was another N64 game that was advanced for the time! All hail Wiz Pig!

Welcome to Zelda Informer, where they post ANYTHING and EVERYTHING, regardless of the source.

The sad part is the users of N4G eat it up.

Lets just be done with it completely and do.

Cool if true.

I mean if somebody were to tell us years ago that Nintendo was working with Retro on a Donkey Kong country reboot we would've all laughed but they did.

And it tuned out to be a kick ass game too.

If true this is good news but Nintendo should stop with this teasing and just go all out with a Nintendo Smash Bros Karting something along the lines of Sega All Stars.

Every Nintendo character should get a chance to race a kart in Nintendo game theme styled tracks.

Make it so.

Bubbles for you Sir! That's a really good idea. Effectively still MarioKart but expand the game to cover all Nintendo franchises... I'd buy it that's for sure.

Nothing will top the simplicity of Rare's Diddy Kong egg snatch mini-game. I used to spend hours playing this with friends = )

If this rumor is true, I really hope they bring this back.

Hmm my opinion they should just combine mario kart and diddy kong racing, and user a wider range of nintendo characters

i really wish nintendo would just stop using the console name in the game titles... it just always comes across as sounding really stupid, and unimaginative.

You mean Like PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royal or Microsoft Flight Simulator.
NiceGuy360  +   1062d ago
Since when is Microsoft the name of a console? Come on bro, bit of a stretch there don't you think?

When I am playing sonic racing it always reminds me of diddy kong racing and how it could be

I need this game, but it makes zero sense for them to launch this before Mario kart. The Mario Kart is a system seller the Wii U for when the ps4/720 launches.

That would be a day 1 purchase for me.
Chard  +   1062d ago
I remember when the Gamecube was announced and there was a concept for a Rareware game called 'Donkey Kong Racing', where the racing was done on animals. It never released, but looked cool.

Oh my god!!! I'm so excited right now and glad I bought my wiiU on launch!! Please be true. Please be true. Please be true. Oh and hopefully we get a sequel from retro studios on a new donkey kong game. I still haven't played the wii one but I will soon. Loving the fact wiiU is backward compatible with all the old wii games since ppl like me skipped the original wii.
