Donkey Kong Country 2 Makes Its Way To Nintendo Switch Online

Nintendo has recently revealed the latest batch of Switch Online’s September 2020 NES and SNES games, and we’re overjoyed to see that Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest is a part of the list.

The list was revealed late Tuesday evening via Nintendo of America’s official Twitter. The selection also features other beloved classic SNES games such as Mario’s Super Picross, as well as The Peace Keepers. For the NES category, we have S.C.A.T.: Special Cybernetic Attack Team.

All of the above-mentioned games will be available to play for Nintendo Switch Online members starting this September 23.

Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest, as the name suggests, is a sequel to Donkey Kong Country which was already added to the list of Switch Online games last July. For this classic title, you follow Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong as they go on a mission to save Donkey Kong from King K. Rool.

Just like the first game, Donkey Kong Country 2 is pretty challenging, although some fans think it’s not as unfair as the first title. In fact, having Dixie Kong and her extremely nimble movement has made the game even more diverse.


It has been a regular thing for Nintendo Switch Online to add classic games. As such, it’s understandable if you’re tempted to apply for the subscription yourself. If so, these are the current price points: $4/£3.49 a month, $8/£7 every three months, or $20/£18 a year.

Having a Nintendo Switch Online membership gives you access to not only the newly-announced September games but over 50 other NES games and over 30 other SNES games as well.
