    The upcoming Mario Vs. Donkey Kong game appears to be a pseudo-remake of the first entry in the franchise, initially released on the GBA in 2004. The game invites players to navigate through platforming puzzles as they work toward Donkey Kong and the stolen “Mini-Marios.” The game will cost $49.99. An official press release from BusinessWire describes the game as follows:

    The rivalry that heated up on the Game Boy Advance system reignites on Nintendo Switch. Donkey Kong has stolen the Mini-Mario toys, and Mario is determined to track him down and get them back! Use your brain and brawn to make it through a barrel of increasingly challenging levels – and in this updated version of the game, you can even play with a friend in local co-op.

    Grab keys and navigate perilous platforms with handstand jumps and backflips and lead the Mini-Mario toys to safety. Then, prepare to face Donkey Kong head on!
