1981. While a little yellow ball called Pac-Man is making headlines in arcades, a funny, nonchalant-looking primate is preparing his punch.
The 250kg banana eater is about to make his name as one of the cornerstones of video games: Donkey Kong. With the critical and commercial success, the gorilla will save the American subsidiary of Nintendo, and will become a key figure in the video game landscape, first setting himself up as an enemy of Mario, and then returning in a sensational way in 1994. Subjugating the video game industry as a whole thanks to its technical prowess, Donkey Kong Country will display its ambition through its own identity, its codes, its design, its humor.
Approaching his 40-year career, Donkey Kong stands today as one of the most recognizable characters in videogames. Created by the Japanese, sublimated by the English and modernized by the Americans, it enjoys an unsuspecting rich history. From the Donkey Kong Country trilogy to Jungle Beat, Returns or even Tropical Freeze, discover this legendary series against a backdrop of unusual anecdotes and numerous exclusive interviews.
