Trivia: Donkey Kong 64
  • Genre-Killer: Collectathons released after this game were considerably toned down in the amount of collectables.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Donkey Kong is Mumbo Jumbo.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Jetpac's mere inclusion, even the original Donkey Kong's (almost arcade perfect) inclusion, and the fact that both are "necessary'' to win it to beat the game, have probably kept this game from being re-released on Virtual Console. Your best bet is to either look on eBay or hope they do a remake.
    • Also, when converting a game to a new platform (whether by porting or emulation) it's often helpful and sometimes necessary to consult the original development team and documentation (like the source code), which Nintendo probably doesn't have access to since Rare left for Microsoft.
  • What Could Have Been: Some text in the game's coding suggests that this could've been compatible with Banjo-Tooie's scrapped Stop-N-Swap feature.
