Official description
Grab some friends and jam along with a fresh set of new, chart-topping songs in Donkey Konga 2!

Features
* Play more than 25 new hits, from pop and hip-hop to R&B and rock, all straight from the charts.
* With three difficulty levels and five modes of play, Donkey Konga 2 will have gamers everywhere drumming and clapping again to new songs.
* Rock out with new game modes. Drum to your own beat in Freestyle Plaza or see how well you and your friends synch up as you share a DK Bongos controller in Concert mode.
* Multiplayer musical mayhem! Connect up to four sets of DK Bongos controllers for jam sessions, or match your rhythmic prowess against a rival in the two-player Battle mode. One day at drum practice, Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong begin arguing over each other's playing. Dixie Kong and Cranky Kong happen to walk by and see the two embroiled in a heated exchange. Dixie settles the spat by showing off her stunning skills. That's when Cranky comes up with a brilliant idea: It's time for the Kongs to go on tour!

In Donkey Konga 2, performances are graded by how accurately players drum along to the rhythms shown on the screen. In Street Performance mode, players play for DK Coins. The better their performances, the more coins they earn. Coins are spent at the Shopping Mall to purchase expert-level music, alternate sound sets for the DK Bongos controller, and mini-games at the Shopping Mall.

The Music Lab features two new mini-games. In Challenge mode, players must match a set performance score to move on to the next song, with the ultimate goal of playing every song in the game in one sitting. Battle mode pits two players against one another to see who can achieve the higher score. Hitting strategically placed POW blocks will lower opponents' scores, and there's a drum roll contest for bonus points as well. In Jam Session, the more the merrier – up to four players can grab DK Bongos controllers and go bananas!
