What’s that behind Candy Kong? Why, it’s a soda machine! This screenshot is from Nintendo’s 1999 “Hot Newz” promotional VHS featuring prerelease gameplay footage from Donkey Kong 64. While the soda machine is replaced by a row of musical instruments in the final release, The Cutting Room Floor has salvaged the prototype’s Koko Konga texture.
