Guitar Hero may have had the guitar, Dance Dance Revolution may have had the dance pad, but nothing can beat the DK Bongos.
The DK Bongos were designed for use with the rhythm games like the Donkey Konga series and the Donkey Kong platform title: Donkey Kong Jungle Beat. All of which came packaged with the DK Bongo set, first released in 2003. There were also plans for a Bongo…racing game? It was originally called DK Bongo Blast on the Gamecube before finally being cancelled. It was then repurposed and renamed as DK Barrel Blast. The game was released in Japan for the Nintendo Wii in 2007 before being released in North America the next year.
Included in Donkey Konga, there are tracks from the Mario franchise, The Legend of Zelda series, and other Nintendo related music. You can even play the Pokemon theme song! The way you play these songs are by using the two inputs on the drums and the built-in microphone for clapping! With the start button, the controller comes to five buttons.
