Exciting times, pre-E3, when the rumour mill runs full speed and things like this pop up and bring hope to the masses.
Nintendo Europe have today filed a trademark for the term “Diddy Kong”, covering games, merchandise, clothing, and – perhaps most notably – gaming controllers and apparatus.
The ever hopeful Nintendo fan in me wants to see a new Diddy Kong Racing, or Diddy’s very own Donkey Kong Country style platforming spin-off, but, in reality, this is probably just to retrospectively cover existing properties, or at very best, the first sniff of a Diddy Kong amiibo.
Still, the hype-train rolls ever forward towards E3. Toot Toot.
