Diddy Kong was first introduced to the “Super Smash Bros.” franchise in “Super Smash Bros. Brawl.” He was a lightweight, fast fighter who was adept at hit-and-run attacks. He did not have many options with ranged attacks, other than a peanut gun that did not do very much damage. His attacks also had relatively short range, making him somewhat hard to master. However, one of the pre-release screenshots for the upcoming game shows him using an attack where he stretches his arms, so his range issue may be resolved in the next game.

Based on the screenshots, it seems that, other than the aforementioned attack, many of his attacks are the same as they were in his original appearance. Please note, however, that the screenshots do not show very much, so this is purely conjecture.
