Earlier this year we celebrated Pac-Man's birthday. This month we celebrate the ageless tradition of Donkey Kong in an event we call "The Kings of Kongs"! Front and center will be the Donkey Kong Country franchise, with versions of Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr and Donkey Kong 64 present and accounted for. Get your hammers ready and your jump button warmed up, this NAVA is going to be BANANAS.
Arcade challenge! One of the many knockoffs of the legendary Donkey Kong arcade game is Falcon's Crazy Kong. Levels in the wrong order, strange sounds, and occasional glitches in gameplay, but at its heart it is Donkey Kong. Is it too different to throw you off your game? Be the best at the game on this one day by logging the highest score on our arcade cabinet by 9pm and win a nifty $20 gift certificate and possibly get your name added to the "House Champion" tournament plaque on the Wall of Fame just above the arcade section of the store. Arcade challenge games are set to FREE PLAY all day, but please remember to let everyone get a shot. If you get the high score, move on, and no hogging the cabinet!
Tournament! Donkey Kong Country celebrates an anniversary in November. The original game was released on the Super Nintendo on November 21st, 1994. For our NAVA tournament we'll bust out Donkey Kong Country Tournament Edition. It's timed (5 minutes), so it's all about who can rack up the highest score. Let's find out. Just hop into a game any time after 3pm, the tournament ends at 9pm where the highest scoring player will be declared "The King".
Remember to get your trade boxes in order so we can all buy, sell and trade together. Wear your NAVA or Digital Press t-shirt for the maximum discount on store purchases. Also, bring your Nintendo 3DS to share street passes... it's NAVA time!
