NXpress Nintendo Podcast 97: ‘Donkey Kong Country 3,’ ‘Mr. Shifty,’ and A Return of Physical Copies

When Donkey Kong Country 3 first hit store shelves in November of 1996, it was just over two months after the hardware debut of the Nintendo 64 and by that time, most players including us here at Goomba Stomp had already moved on to Super Mario 64And with the N64, most of us never looked back. This week we continue our year-long Donkey Kong retrospective by reviewing the third and final entry in the original DKC series and let you know what we think of Rare’s 16-bit swan song. Before that we discuss why Nintendo should embrace physical copies of games and ending the show is a short review of Mr. Shifty, the debut title from Australian four-man group Team Shifty and Kamiko, a game styled around Japanese Shinto beliefs. All this and more.
