Rare Developer Shows Off Previously Unseen Donkey Kong Country Concept Art

DKC Returns

A number of previously unpublished early sketches and concept art for SNES classic Donkey Kong Country have recently been shared with the world by a veteran Rare developer.

Gregg Mayles, who has worked for the now Microsoft-owned studio since 1989, has been tweeting the images, taken from his personal vault, under the hashtag #DKCRevealed. As well as providing a fascinating insight into the development process for one of the most beloved platforming games of all time, they also reveal the game’s working title of Donkey Kong & The Golden Bananas, as well as the fact that Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto played a pivotal role in shaping the final design for the character of DK.
