Pre-Release Hint(s)

  • A long overdue follow-up in this series[1]
  • Luigi at the end of NSMB2 mentioning Mario "fighting a monkey again"
  • A photo of James on his laptop with a DKC Returns wallpaper[2]


  • James' original plan was to do this game in 2020, but that got delayed much like there was a several month delay before this series was supposed to begin in late August
