Diddy Kong Pilot GBA
« on: January 17, 2011 »
Diddy Kong Pilot was a Mode-7 racer developed by Rare Ltd. and meant to be published by Nintendo. Originally announced in 2001, the game featured various characters from the Donkey Kong universe and could be controlled with a tilt sensor that was integrated into the games cart. In 2002, Nintendo sold their share of Rare Ltd. and opted out of their publishing contract. The game was later reskinned with Banjo characters and released as Banjo-Pilot.

Description from Rares website:

Relive the classic gameplay style of Diddy Kong Racing as you take to the skies again in one of Rares very first titles for the Game Boy Advance! Pick out your favourite from an unlikely squadron of Kongs and Kremlings, each bringing along their own distinctive (and customisable) flying machine, then launch yourself headlong into the striking 3D courses. Within minutes youll be diving low over sandy beaches and climbing high above bubbling lava en route to the chequered flag and victory

All sorts of play options are yours for the tinkering, including single-player and multiplayer tournaments, a classic time trial and detailed story modes for each character (ending in climactic one-on-one boss duels). You can even link up with three of your mates, competing for the title of squadron leader or simply blast each other out of the sky in frantic dogfights.

Other features of the game include interactive background scenery, rolling and looping manouevres, upgradable weapons and power-ups, secret features to unlock and of course the rarely-seen Tilt Technology, where, if youre feeling particularly adventurous, you can set aside your D-Pad in favour of controlling the plane by actually tilting the Game Boy Advance.

It would have been cool to have another Diddy Kong racing since the N64 origional was awesome. It was a terrible idea on Nintendo/Rare's behalf to make it into a Banjo game... :/ Only if Rare was with Nintendo again... EDIT: 800th post. YAAAAAAAAAAAYZ GHAHGSUYFVEGDVAVJG!!111111

That would've been great because I loved Diddy Kong Racing from the N64. But is was the GBA so it's kinda meh since the GBA was like 8 years ago or something like that.

It would've been neat if it was released. But oh well.

Diddy Kong Racing seems good enough for me. ^_~

Complete trash. In all honesty, it ruined the magic that made DKR64 great.

Same thoughts here.

And wasn't there supposed to be a Donkey Kong Racing too that got scrapped? But Banjo Pilot was pretty whack anyways I doubt this would've been much better.

Donkey Kong Racing was supposed to be a lunch game for the GCN, but it quickly got scrapped after Rare was bought by Microsoft.

Ninty claims that Donkey Kong Barrel Blast is their own version of Donkey Kong Racing.

You said this sentence:

It should have said "before DKR or AFTER". :P
