Welcome Arcaders… To Donkey Kong Month!

Hey Arcaders!

Time for another special month here at the Arcade Archives- Donkey Kong month! 40 years ago, a game was released into arcades all over the world- and would change the landscape forever… Radarscope!

I guess we will find out the answers in this month’s Coin Up about the big guy himself!

And we are in for a fun 30 or so days!!!

So join us in celebrating the 40th birthday of the big gorilla himself ( and some guy named Jumpman…) all month long here at the Arcade Archives!!!

And as I always say-
