The DYKG crew have done it again! This time around, Nintendo’s Donkey Kong gets the Did You Know Gaming treatment. I confess, I am a huge fan of their site and love finding out stuff I had forgotten about or did not know at all. Press play and enjoy the history.

It’s On Like Donkey Kong

On this day (July 9) in 1981, Nintendo unleashed Donkey Kong in the arcades! Since then, millions of gamers have fallen in love with the great Nintendo gorilla. DK (as he is affectionately known) has gone from being the villain to now being the hero.

From humble beginnings – kidnapping Pauline and throwing barrels at a plumber, DK has come a long way and truly grown up. He has definitely kept us all entertained. Happy Birthday big fella!

What is your favourite DK game?
