Remember the bongo controller? You know, that thing that came with Donkey Konga and then teleported itself into the back of your closet? Well, it may actually get another use this year with DK Bongo Blast, the requisite kart-racer no one knew was coming. There are two notable differences between this and every other kart klone out there, thogh:this gamegives its participants jet belts instead of karts, and you bang a drum to make it go.
By beating on the bongos, you power Donkey Kong's powerful Barrel Jets, whichpropel him through the expected mix of course environments and power-ups. Along the track are other barrels that launch DK and friends from point to point, possibly offering shortcuts or paths to hidden items.
