Unofficial Donkey Kong Appearance Smashes Up Streets Of Rage

Streets-of-Rage-2-Donkey-Kong-EditionHave you ever wondered how the likes of Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong would hold up against the countless thugs in Streets of Rage 2? Neither have we! Despite this, it would appear the ape duo have become playable characters in Sega’s smash hit through an unofficial ROM hack.

Similar to the recent Donkey Kong meets Doom project, Nintendo’s iconic character has been brought over to another video game with surprisingly good results. Now replacing the likes of Axel, Adam and Blaze in Streets of Rage 2’s playable character roster is both Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong with their barrel busting fists.

This graphical hack for the Sega Mega Drive title if anything is an amusing playthrough, especially for fans of both series. While a patch to play this yourself is yet to be released, the author has uploaded two videos of the apes in action to YouTube.
