Donkey Kong smashes onto Nintendo eShop today

Nintendo of Europe have announced that Game Boy classic Donkey Kong is to be available through the Nintendo eShop’s Virtual Console service today.

This version for Nintendo 3DS takes the arcade classic to a new level, encompassing 101 unique stages of platforming perfection.

Mario finds himself tasked with rescuing Pauline from the clutches of Donkey Kong, but beyond the original arcade version he must now dodge traps, avoid enemies and hit switches as he brings the level key to the exit.

The Italian plumber has also learnt some new moves, such as the handstand and backflip.
