DK: Jungle Climber, known as Donkey Kong: Jungle Climber in Europe and Japan, is a platforming game released in 2007 for the Nintendo DS. The game was developed by Paon and published by Nintendo.


The Kong family are on a vacation at Sun Sun Island. While they are there, Diddy notices a giant banana on a mountain; Cranky then requests Donkey Kong to acquire it, and Diddy joins him.

On top of the mountain, King K. Rool and his Kremling Krew are seen stealing a Crystal Banana from an "alien". They plan to conquer the universe with them. A Banana Spaceship then appears and battles DK and Diddy.

After the Kongs destroy the spaceship, a banana alien named Xananab exits it. He apologizes for attacking DK, as he thought that he was a Kremling. Xananab then claims that K. Rool stole the Crystal Banana. The Kongs then decide to seek the Crystal Banana for Xananab.
