Mario Kart Tour, the mobile game version of Nintendo’s famous go-kart racing franchise, has been having a barrel full of bananas adding in members of the DK Crew. Previously announced, Funky Kong and Dixie Kong would enter the game’s gatcha-à la-warpipe during the Jungle Tour event. Split into waves, it was Dixie Kong’s turn to be available to pull in-game on Tuesday, May 26th. 

To remind everyone of her appearance and to stir up those Diddy Kong Racing nostalgic memories, Nintendo has made a video of Dixie Kong’s history throughout the Donkey Kong franchise, as well as her appearance in various Super Mario games.

 

 
This isn’t the only video Nintendo has been having fun with. To advertise an in-game purchase bundle centered around Rambi Rider, another video was uploaded to Nintendo’s mobile gaming focused YouTube account:

 

 
You can find Funky Kong, Dixie Kong, and a variety of DK themed karts and gear in Mario Kart Tour until Tuesday, June 2nd, at 10:59 p.m. PT.
