A rare Japanese Donkey Kong game — which was licensed by Nintendo in the early ’80s — has finally been made available to play again. The 1984 game titled, Donkey Kong 3: Daigyakushuu, was one of a series of arcade and NES games reworked for PCs, with almost all of the others making their way online over the last 30 years. Until now, however, this version was never made available to play on modern devices.

At the end of last year, a group of the game’s fans purchased a rare version of the game for around $415 USD before extracting all of the game’s data and creating a version that can be played through an X1 emulator. The game — which is also known as Donkey Kong 3: The Great Counterattack – is loosely based on the original game, but has a number of different features which make it more of a sequel to Donkey Kong 3. There are reportedly 20 stages, although no one has ever progressed far enough to record the later levels. You can take a look at the game above.
