Famitsu Reveals New DK Bongo Blast Details

The latest issue of Japanese publication Famitsu magazine disclosed new details regarding Donkey Kong Bongo Blast. The game, which Nintendo initially intended to release on GameCube with support of the bongos controller peripheral, will now release on Wii later this year.

According to Famitsu, Bongo Blast will have players racing through seven worlds and sixteen courses using the Wii Remote and Nunchuk to control their character. Players will shake the controllers to accelerate, and turn by placing more emphasis on one controller over the other. Jumps are accomplished by raising both the Wii Remote and Nunchuk. In addition to the single-player mode, Bongo Blast will also include a split-screen multiplayer mode for up to four players.

So is bongo support gone now?

I really don't think using the word "Bongo" fits anymore. If we're just using our Wiimotes now, then why am I playing a game titled 'DK Bongo Blast'? How about, "DK Try To Imagine Your Wiimote Is A Bongo Blast."

And DK Blast sounds too much like some new Hi C fruit drink.

I'm hoping for bongo support...with wii mote support.

i don't know but sounds kinda lame. can you say arm cramps. seems like a rayman raving rabbid rip, ('carrying the present in a foot race to the finish line' minigame). it's better off a bongo game, hence that's what it was developed for. f*ck these gc ports.
