Donkey Kong Barrel Blast, known in Europe and Australia as Donkey Kong Jet Race, and prior to E3 as Donkey Jet and DK: Bongo Blast, is a racing game for Nintendo's Wii video game console, announced on May 9, 2006, and that year's E3 convention for the Nintendo GameCube under the title of DK: Bongo Blast. The GameCube version was ultimately cancelled in favor of a Wii release. The game was released for the Wii in Japan and the United States in 2007, and in PAL regions in 2008.

The game was originally developed to be controlled using the DK Bongos for the GameCube; the left and right drums would steer in their respective directions, and rolling both drums accelerated. When the game was moved to the Wii, the DK Bongos were replaced with the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, having the player shake the controller in place of hitting the drums. The game has faced with generally negative reviews from critics, criticizing the replaced bongo control scheme with that using the Wii Remote, as well as the last-generation visuals.
