Codex Gamicus

Donkey Kong Land, (called Super Donkey Kong GB in Japan) is a video game released for the Game Boy in 1995 and stars Donkey and Diddy. This game is the semi-sequel of Donkey Kong Country as it takes place after its events, but before Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quests

This game is often mistaken to be a Game Boy remake for Donkey Kong Country. This has been proven false as the game has total different features, level, newer enemies and no returning bosses (excluding King K. Rool) but rather newer ones.


After Donkey and Diddy discuss their latest adventure to Cranky. Cranky's jealousy of all their success leads him to giving the Kremling Krew a bet to rob the Banana Hoard once more as Cranky thinks the monkeys will never complete the game on an 8-bit system.
