Mario vs. Donkey Kong now tempts you to pre-order with these bonuses

Nintendo is starting what is presumably the last year of the Switch. And he still has a lot in his luggage. For example Mario vs Donkey Kong, which releases February 16th. And the dealers are vying for your pre-order with bonuses!

  • Game + trailer at Media Markt*
  • Game + trailer at Saturn*
  • Game + sticker sheet at Otto*
  • Game + sliding puzzle at Amazon*

At Media Saturn you get a key ring for free. Otto, on the other hand, has a sticker sheet. Amazon is currently listing a “sliding puzzle” for the game, but is not yet accepting pre-orders and has not yet illustrated the bonus. GameStop, where there is also a potential bonus, is still pending. The same applies to the My Nintendo Store.

The old rivalry from the Game Boy Advance days flares up again on Nintendo Switch. Explore the game in all-new graphics, solve puzzles and put your platforming skills to the test as you collect the stolen Mini Marios.

‘Mario film gets solo Donkey Kong spinoff’

Sources reportedly told GiantFreakinRobot that a Donkey Kong movie is coming. It would be a spin-off of the Mario Bros. upcoming movie. Just like in the Mario movie, Seth Rogen will provide the voice of Donkey Kong.

It has been known for some time that a Super Mario Bros. film is in the making at film studio Illumination. Now, according to sources, the company is also working on a Donkey Kong spin-off film. Donkey Kong gets the same voice actor in this film as in the Mario film, namely Seth Rogen.

Will there be a Nintendo ‘MCU’?

The Donkey Kong movie would be a spin-off of the Mario movie. It therefore seems likely that both films take place in the same universe. It’s starting to look like a larger Nintendo movie universe.

That would also make it possible for many more of Nintendo’s favorite characters to get their own movie, but for now the rumors are really only about a Donkey Kong movie. It is likely that we will see well-known Donkey Kong characters in that film, such as Cranky Kong. Just like Donkey Kong, he has a role in the Mario movie.

Who will we see besides Seth Rogen in the Mario movie?

The cast of the Mario movie was recently announced, but opinions are divided about the choices made. In addition to Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, the film features Chris Pratt as Mario, Charlie Day as Luigi and Anya Taylor-Joy as Peach. Charles Martinet has a number of cameos in the film and will continue to voice Mario in the games for a long time to come.

The Mario movie will be released at the end of 2022. Only after that time can we expect a solo Donkey Kong film, if this film actually happens. So we will have to be patient for a while.
