On July 15th, Nintendo Switch Online will update with three new games: The Immortal, Natsume Championship Wrestling, and, last but not least, Donkey Kong Country. Of those three, Donkey Kong Country is already proving to be the most exciting to Nintendo Switch owners. Originally released on the Super Nintendo back in 1994, the game proved to be a major success for Nintendo, spawning two direct sequels on the platform, and a number of spin-offs. The game has been notably absent from Nintendo Switch Online's line-up, but old-school fans and newcomers alike will finally be able to experience the game on the handheld hybrid. Naturally, fans are already expressing their excitement about the prospect, as the nearly 26-year-old game is currently trending on social media.

To be fair, there isn't a lot of competition.
Donkey Kong Country is the highlight of 2020

There are a lot of options to play the game, but Switch is long overdue.
Finally! I get to play Donkey Kong Country. I was playing it on SNES classic, but never finish it. Now, I get to play it again! Can't wait!
