Get ready for the return of some of Nintendo’s best-loved characters as Donkey Kong Jungle Beat has been added to the Wii’s New Play Control family, in which classic games are reinvented to take advantage of Wii’s unique motion sensing capabilities and new widescreen experience.

The New Play Control! series, in which classic games are reinvented to take advantage of Wii’s unique motion sensing capabilities, already boasts the original Pikmin and Mario Power Tennis, with fans delighting in the new controls and new widescreen experience.

Donkey Kong Jungle Beat was hailed as one of the most inventive video games ever created on its original release for Nintendo GameCube – and is now coming to Wii, in Summer 2009!

You help Donkey Kong, the world’s best known ape and one of Nintendo’s most famous characters, swing and pounce his way through the jungle in this larger-than-life adventure, but this is no ordinary platform game. The goal isn’t just to get to the end of the level, but to gather as many banana points as possible, performing combos to maximise your score.

The movements of Donkey Kong are controlled through the motion-sensing capabilities of the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers – swing them in to unleash attacks on and direct soundwaves at your enemies!

Two brand new stages have been added, making this game a must-buy for fans of the original, as well as gamers who have yet to experience the excitement of this unique game.

In addition, new enemies such as the stomping Thumpskull and the electric shock-producing Buzzball, as well as new bonuses to collect and new weapons to use, make the New Play Control! version of Donkey Kong Jungle Beat a challenging and fun new experience.

Donkey Kong Jungle Beat is a scheduled for release in North America on May 5, 2009.
