Diddy Kong Racing DS is an enhanced version of the Nintendo 64 classic, Diddy Kong Racing. It was released for the Nintendo DS.

Tiptup, who is found in Bubblegloop Swamp and Jolly Roger's Lagoon, is found again in Diddy Kong Racing DS. However, because Rare was bought by Microsoft, Banjo and Conker were taken out of the game. They were replaced by Dixie Kong and Tiny Kong. However, the evil Wizpig and Taj are now playable, as well as all the other original characters. There are also four new levels that you can buy with coins earned in the game.

Plot

Timber the Tiger's parents go on vacation and leave their son in charge of the island they live on, leaving him and his friends to race for fun. Their enjoyment is derailed when an evil, intergalactic, pig wizard named Wizpig arrives at peaceful Timber's Island and attempts to take over after he conquered his own planet's racetracks. He turns the four island's guardians: Tricky the Triceratops, Bubbler the Octopus, Bluey the Walrus and Smokey the Dragon into his henchmen.

The only solution available to the island's inhabitants is to defeat Wizpig in an elaborate series of races that involves cars, hovercrafts, and airplanes. Drumstick, the best racer on the island, failed this challenge and was transformed into a frog by Wizpig's black magic. Timber sends a letter to his friend Diddy Kong to call for help and Diddy in turn recruits two members of his family, Dixie and Tiny Kong, while Timber gathers the remaining inhabitants of the island to help. They eventually complete all of Wizpig's challenges and confront Wizpig himself to a race and defeat him.

Shortly afterward, Wizpig leaves for his home planet, Future Fun Land. Fearing that Wizpig would again attempt to invade Timber's Island, the islanders travel to Future Fun Land for a second challenge. When Wizpig loses the second race, the rocket he rides on malfunctions and blasts him to a distant planet and peace returns to Timber Island for good.
