Nintendo files trademark for "Diddy Kong" in Europe. Can you dig it?

Haha, Duddy Kong Racing by Retro would be quite the disappointment. I wonder how GAF would react?
Oh my. Donkey Kong Country: Apereciated Sequel by Retro would be accepted, Diddy Kong Racing more so, but Racing by Retro would be such a meltdown.

Perhaps he's wondering why someone would shoot a man before throwing him out of a plane.

Oh God, Reggie playing Donkey Kong Country in the E3 video...

It all makes sense now.

No matter what this is, I'm excited.

Retro tweet + this trademark = huge troll ploy by a Nintendo intern.

Shame that the Hoo-Ha is no longer a thing, would've been a great move in Diddy Kong Country

It's Diddy Kong Racing. Retro Studios working on a new racer after doing the retro stages for MK7 :p

Aren't you guys kind of overreacting? I don't think Nintendo would make DKR since MK8 still has a lot of steam. Tropical freeze didn't sell well unfortunately. Retro is definitely working on something else.

I can be ok with this... if Metroid is handled by mr. Koizumi himself.
Which is most definitely not the case
But the thought of a Retro wrpg will still haunt me.

Hey now, I was one of those, "it's fucking Donkey Kong" people at E3 2013. NOT ANYMORE. Loved the fuck out of Tropical Freeze so whatever Diddy Kong is, especially if it's Retro, I'm hyped. Hyped as fuck.

If Retro Studios have been working on another Donkey Kong game, I'm going to lose my shit. That studio has SO much talent, they could do whatever the hell they wanted!
