Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze heads to Switch this year


Time for another crack.

The Wii U’s Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze will be re-released on Switch, Nintendo recently announced.

The 2014 platformer will largely be a port of the Wii U title, though a new mode featuring Funky Kong will be added. Said mode is “beginner-friendly” — players have a hover move and double jump alongside infinite rolls and underwater corkscrews.

The Switch version of the game will also provide local co-op multiplayer via Joy-Con controls.

Look for the Switch version of Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze on 4 May 2018. We reviewed the game’s Wii U version here.
