Nintendo has revealed the latest Bongo Drum game for Gamecube - this time it's a racing game called DK Bongo Blast. Check out the images for gameplay; they're pretty self explanatory. DK and pals have drum shaped jets, and the player will bang away on the bongo controller to make those jets burn. Turning will be achieved by hitting only one side of the bongos (or both at different rates). You also have to attack other drivers and collect fruit.
As crazy as this sounds, anyone who's played Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat will attest to how brilliantly the bongos were utilised in a 2D platformer, and it was one of the most entertaining games of the last year. After they pulled that off, this looks like a piece of cake.
Anyhow, take a peek at the Media Panel for the screens. DK Bongo Blast is due out this year exclusively for GameCube.
