Cranky Kong Takes Over NOA's Twitter Account

To promote tomorrow’s release of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Cranky Kong has taken over Nintendo of America’s Twitter account. (Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Nintendo, Wii U)

Tweets include.

Q. From @IGN - Why are you so cranky?
A. @IGN You think I’m cranky? Check out some of the message boards out there!

Q. How old are you, Cranky???
A. Old enough to remember when falling in a pit in a platformer was called “lack of skill” and not “cheap.”

OMG, lol, I think Cranky is talking about the fool from Kotaku who blamed the game design for his poor gaming performance when he streamed on Twitch.

Amazing. It's about time Nintendo started biting back at these types... and over social media too!!! Go Cranky! errm, go Nintendo !!!

I thought the exact same thing. That guy was such an idiot, blaming the game he was playing instead of how obviously bad he was out of sheer embarrassment.

He could also be referring to the GameSpot review who called it cheap as well.
BoneBone  +   56d ago
Ahh, I see lol. I never even gave GameSpot the honour of clicking on their link!

I thought it was IGN who said it, not sure what it is with these reviewers and bashing Nintendo lately. And this is from someone who doesn't own a Nintendo system.

Haha :P


Nah, IGN praised the game.

Cranky is very much the symbol of us old school gamers. When will he star in his own game? (as playable)
Kennytaur  +   57d ago
He is playable in Co-op.
Sly-Lupin  +   56d ago
He already has. It's called, "Donkey Kong."
REDBEARD  +   56d ago
I mean as playable though. He wasn't playable in the original DK. A game where he is a lead character and playable.

Anyone here miss Lanky Kong?
Sly-Lupin  +   56d ago
@REDBEARD: I know exactly what you meant.

The game you want is "Donkey Kong."

Before trying to tell me I'm wrong, maybe you'd be better served doing a Google search, or visiting Wikipedia.

Cranky IS the orignal DK. Cranky is the older version of the original Kong
Geekman  +   57d ago
I forsee people cursing him out for the VGX incident.
Chrono  +   57d ago
The year of cranky kong?

I shall wake up tomorrow and pick up my preorder without brushing my teeth or combing my hair. And wearing only boxers. No time for unnecessary holdups.
