Donkey Kong Land III is a platforming game for the Super Game Boy. It was later ported for the Game Boy Color as Donkey Kong GB: Dinky Kong & Dixie Kong exclusively in Japan.
This is an English translation of the Game Boy Color version of Donkey Kong Land III (while the game got an English release, it was for the Game Boy, not Game Boy Color). The dialogue in this translation is largely based on the English text in the original Game Boy version of the game. Only a few changes were made to the text, such as spelling corrections.
The font is borrowed from the SNES version of DKC, as opposed to the one used in the original DKL3 for the Game Boy. This font looks cleaner, and contains both uppercase and lowercase letters, while the original DKL3 font only contained uppercase letters. As a result, the text is easier to read in this translation.
Besides editing text, certain other screens were modified and translated back into English, most notably the title screen.
In addition, a few features that were removed in the Japanese version of the game are restored in this translation, namely the world map animations and the last attempted time when playing the Time Attack mode. The Jetty Jitters demo is fixed as well. Bear’s animation has also been restored. Similarly, some bugs that were present in the original game have been corrected. These improvements were not present in the original v1.0 patch, and were gradually added in the v1.1 and v1.2 patches.
This translation patch is fully complete, and contains no known bugs, other than what the original game already had.
Enjoy! The patch should be applied to the Japanese game for the Game Boy Color, titled “Donkey Kong GB: Dinky Kong & Dixie Kong”. It will not work if applied to the original English game (titled “Donkey Kong Land III”) for the Game Boy!

Excellent!Reviewed By: JulianoFdeS on 21 May 2019
This hack is excellent, the colors make it beatiful and I like the bug fixes. There’s only one thing that need to change, please, remove your own name of credits screen, why? Well.. it makes the credits a little longer, and it is bad for speedruns! If you want so badly your name on the game, I suggest and highly recommend put it on the intro screen!
Overall.. best DKL3 hack ever!
