Donkey Kong is one of the NES games that players can collect in Animal Crossing. It was originally an arcade game, but was later ported for the Nintendo Entertainment System.


Gameplay of Donkey Kong

The gameplay for Donkey Kong is split into three levels, where the player controls Mario (known as Jumpman during the time of the game's release). The goal is travel and jump through a construction zone in order to get to the top to rescue the Princess, Pauline, from the giant ape Donkey Kong. After completing all three levels, the game loops back to the first and gameplay continues, but at a faster speed. It continues to speed up with each successful completion of the three levels.


Donkey Kong can be obtained in many ways. Some common ways to obtain Donkey Kong are through Tom Nook's Monthly Raffle, Crazy Redd's, as a present from a neighbor, treasure hunts, birthday presents, etc.
