Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Switch Port Announced, Release Date Set

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Switch Port Announced, Release Date Set

Part of the way Nintendo achieved this was by porting games from the Wii U over to the Switch, as it did with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Pokken Tournament DX. Unfortunately, seeing as it was released for the Wii U, not a whole lot of people got to play it.

Nintendo have dipping back into their box labelled "Great Wii U games that nobody played because nobody had a Wii U" and pulled out Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze! Donkey Kong will be exclusive to this brand new adventure, planned for release in spring 2018.

Major League Baseball agent fired amidst allegations he filmed multiple clients in shower
CSE acquired Arland Sports a year ago and Wood became the baseball division's president in April. Wood has reportedly been fired by several players while others plan to do so.

The game will be nearly identical to the Wii U version, though there will be a new playable character in the form of Funky Kong, who will join Dixie, Diddy, Donkey, and Cranky Kong on their adventure.

No, Nintendo isn't calling it Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze POLAR EDITION or anything, just the plain old original title. 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. We'll have more information for you when it's available, but in the meantime, keep your fingers crossed for more ports of classic Donkey Kong and Zelda games.
