Donkey Konga is a GameCube rhythm game starring the ape Donkey Kong, developed by Namco and published by Nintendo. Instead of the standard GameCube controllers, the game is intended to be played with a special controller called the DK Bongos that resemble two small bongo drums.

Donkey Konga was developed by the same team of people who made the Taiko: Drum Master. There are around 30 songs, including hits such as Louie Louie, We Will Rock You, Shining Star and Rock Lobster. There are songs from the Mario series, the The Legend of Zelda series and other Nintendo related music. The Japanese, European, and North American versions have different track lists.

Emulation Information

DK Bongos and the GameCube Controller to PC USB Adapters

If using an USB adapter (not to be confused with the GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U), the DK Bongos will work with Dolphin. Some adapters may not have the analog trigger support needed for the microphone to work, so make sure it is a fully functional USB adapter. Set Port 1 to "DK Bongos" in the "Controller Configuration" window; this is needed for real bongos to work properly.
