Rare ended up creating a new version of Diddy Kong Racing for the DS back in 2007. What we didn’t know until this week is that another studio toyed around with the same game on Nintendo’s portable, albeit on a much smaller scale.

PtoPOnline unearthed a tech demo from Climax Studios that predates the launch of the DS by several months. We’re not sure if the company ever intended to pitch its own Diddy Kong Racing game, though it’s still pretty interesting to see. Note that Climax’s prototype and Rare’s final release on DS were completely unrelated.

Outright Games released a teaser trailer for DreamWorks Dragons Dawn of New Riders, which is planned for Switch. Watch it below.

We’re still unsure when exactly we’ll be seeing Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion on Switch, but Well Played did recently conduct an interview with some of the developers at Climax Studios to gain more insight. Associate producer Orcun Adsoy, lead designer Ian Hudson, and audio lead Chris Jolley participated in the chat.

Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion was announced several months ago, but we haven’t seen any footage from the game. That recently changed when Amazon France posted a pre-alpha video.

Here’s the video as uploaded to YouTube:

It should be noted that since the footage is pre-alpha, it’s not entirely representative of the final product. Still, it gives us a general look at Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion in motion, the voice acting, and more.

A couple of months ago, Outright Games announced Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion. It’s a promising-looking title, with development being handled by Silent Hill: Shattered Memories developer Climax Studios.
