Nintendo has added another batch of retro games to its Switch Online service, and one of them may have been a childhood favorite. Donkey Kong Country, the 1994 Super NES reboot of the Donkey Kong franchise, will be available to play for subscribers starting on July 15th. The side-scroller features Donkey Kong and his nephew Diddy Kong as they explore jungles and snowcapped mountains to retrieve their stolen bananas from King K. Rool and his crocodilian minions call the Kremlings.
Three more titles will be added to the #NES & #SNES – #NintendoSwitchOnline collection on 7/15, including #DonkeyKong Country!
