Diddy Kong Swings into Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS

Diddy Kong has been revealed as the latest brawler in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. games for 3DS and Wii U. Clearly intended to highlight the release of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze in North America and Europe, Nintendo seems to be going all out in their promotion of the Wii U’s latest first party title.

Diddy Kong featured in the Wii’s Super Smash Bros. Brawl, so his inclusion isn’t too much of a surprise. That said, with all the hype surrounding Cranky Kong’s inclusion in Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, some fans may be disappointed Nintendo hasn’t featured the cane-brandishing Kong instead. No release date has been given for either version of the upcoming Smash Bros. game, but both are slated for release in 2014 .
