Donkey Kong will be swinging his way onto Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle for Switch in a future DLC update, Nintendo announced today. The lumbering ape will be featured as a playable character in his own story for single-player content, which will roll out in Spring 2018.

The DK-starring DLC will be available as part of Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle's Season Pass, although you can also purchase it separately (Nintendo hasn't confirmed a price for it yet however). Not much else is known about the new mission yet, although it will feature a new world for DK to explore.

Check out the Donkey Kong-themed DLC in a trailer below, and have a butcher's at our Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle review to see if the irreverent title is worth your hard-earned cash.
