The story of “Donkey Kong Land III” revolves around a contest to find the fabled Lost World, which has been said to have dominated legends for centuries. Announcements of the contest have attracted “would-be” explorers all over the world to seize the long-awaited chance of fame and fortune. Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong have already left to find it, leaving a disgruntled Dixie Kong behind. Deciding to prove herself every bit as capable as them, Dixie partners up with her toddler cousin Kiddy Kong.
