Nintendo Gets "On Like Donkey Kong"
Nintendo officially filed this week for a trademark on the phrase "It's On Like Donkey Kong." The phrase originated with the arcade game that came out in 1981 and later migrated to Nintendo, and is being brought back in connection with the upcoming release of "Donkey Kong Country Returns" for the Wii.
The new game comes out Nov. 21.
The request was filed by Nintendo with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
