For detailed information about this series, see: Diddy Kong Racing at Super Mario Wiki
Diddy Kong Racing is a series of racing video games developed by Rare and published by Nintendo (note that only Nintendo holds the copyrights for the series) and it's a spin-off of the Donkey Kong series, since stars Diddy Kong. It is often considered part of the Donkey Kong series instead, but since it never references Donkey Kong and has a totally indipendent storyline, it can be considered a series on its own.
Only two games have been released:
- Diddy Kong Racing (November 21, 1997), Nintendo 64.
- Diddy Kong Racing DS (February 5, 2007), Nintendo DS. A remake of the original game.
A line of action figures based on the game was released by Toy Biz in 1999, including Diddy Kong, Banjo and Wizpig.
