Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is Coming to Nintendo Switch

Another Wii U title is making the jump to the Nintendo Switch and this time it features our beloved and loveable ape.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze introduces Funky Kong as a playable character. This character will play more like an assist mode, allowing you to infinitely use certain moves and even walk over hazards like spikes. The game is set to launch on the Nintendo Switch on May 4.

In my opinion I think it should’ve been “Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze Deluxe”.

I hope this title finally gets the sales it deserves on Switch. Really solid DK game(maybe the best? At least in the top 3 for me) and if it does well, maybe they can do more with DK again(I know he’s in Rabbids too which is great) maybe re-invent 3D DK next?

Doesn’t have enough added to it to justify a second purchase for me. If the graphics were considerably better I may feel differently…
