Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

On Nintendo Direct this morning, Nintendo announced that another game for Wii U will be taken to Nintendo Switch. This is Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, the acclaimed platform developed by Retro Studios.

According to Nintendo, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for Switch will not be a simple port since it will include a new game mode. In it, you will take control of Funky Kong, a character that has unique abilities like double jump, spin infinitely, float and swim better than anybody else. In addition, Funky is always accompanied with its surfboard, so you can use it to avoid the dangerous thorns that are in some areas.

As you imagine, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze takes advantage of the unique features of the console by allowing you to play it anywhere and share the Joy-Con to enjoy your cooperative action.
