Diddy Kong Racing is a Nintendo 64 kart-racing game developed by Rare and published by Nintendo in 1997. After beginning development as a real-time strategy game, development shifted to become a kart-racing game featuring Diddy Kong instead. Players raced cars, hovercrafts, and aeroplanes across 20 tracks in the game while utilizing various power-ups obtained from regenerating colored balloons on each track. The game included both Battle and Adventure modes.
The plot in Diddy Kong Racing revolves around an island invaded by Wizpig, an evil intergalactic pig-wizard in search of more racetracks to take control of after having already conquered those within his home planet. The island’s inhabitants, including Diddy Kong, Banjo the Bear, Conker the Squirrel, and more, must defeat Wizpig and his henchmen in a series of races in order to save the island.
Critics acclaimed Diddy Kong Racing upon release, praising the game's graphics, gameplay, and technical achievements. The game even went on to win an award for Console Racing Game of the Year in 1998. A Nintendo DS remake called Diddy Kong Racing DS was published in 2007, with enhanced visuals and new touchscreen functions.
