Diddy Kong (ディディーコング, Didī Kongu) will be a playable character in Super Smash Bros. 4. He was confirmed on February 21, 2014, the international release date of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. This was the first time a character was revealed for an international release of a game as opposed to just the Japanese release. Like Donkey Kong, Diddy has more stylised fur than he did in Brawl. Like other veterans Diddy Kong's pigments are more prominent than they were in Brawl, with the visual sharpness of his red attire and brown fur increased.
