Where the second best is the bestest!
Donkey Kong Junior was the second video game in the Donkey Kong video game series. It was produced by Nintendo, Inc. and released in August 1982 as a follow-up to the wildly successful 1981 game Donkey Kong.
It was also the second game where the character named “Mario” appeared in a video game. Mario has since been used in a number of Nintendo-produced games, as well as the characters of Donkey Kong and his son Donkey Kong, Jr.
Donkey Kong Junior was released on a number of home consoles and in a standup arcade cabinet.
