Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Will Release on Switch in May

Tropical Freeze, the acclaimed platform developed by Retro Studios.

While the game will largely remain the same, it will feature a new mode starring Funky Kong. The character has the ability to perform double jumps, hover, infinite rolls and infinite corkscrews. In addition, Funky is always accompanied with its surfboard, so you can use it to avoid the unsafe thorns that are in some areas.

Donkey Kong is headed to the game as a playable character, complete with an exclusive new storyline and world to explore.

In their much anticipated Nintendo Direct Mini, Nintendo have today announced that Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze will be coming to the Nintendo Switch. It's not that imaginative, inventive, original or quirky, though, and after New Super Mario Bros U or the superb Rayman Legends it feels conservative'. Tell us in the comment below.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze launches for Nintendo Switch on May 4.

You'll also have the option to play alongside friends with the Tropical Freeze co-op mode, which worked pretty well on the Wii U.
