If you loved and remember the Donkey Kong Country series, you’re about to get an ape-sized blast of nostalgia. A recent tweet by Donkey Kong Country creator and Rare co-founder Tim Stamper shows off the computer that helped create the Nintendo classic. Donkey Kong Country received universal critical acclaim in 1994, eventually becoming the second best-selling Super Nintendo game of all time with nine million copies sold.
This picture really sends me back to the time I sat on my cousin’s couch and watched him play Donkey Kong Country on the SNES. I’m glad that Tim Stamper dusted off this piece of treasure and showed it to the world. What are some of your favorite memories of Donkey Kong Country? Sound off in the comments below!
