Random Game Facts – It’s On Like Donkey Kong

donkey kong country returns fact Random Game Facts   Its On Like Donkey Kong

Not only is it on like Donkey Kong, but we’re going to party like it’s…1994? Wait, that’s not how that goes…but of course the original Donkey Kong Country released back in 1994, hence why you’d say that instead of 1999. Kinda surprised they just got around to trademarking the Donkey Kong phrase though. You think they would’ve done that sooner.
