Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze is heading to Nintendo Switch
Nintendo has announced that Donkey Kong is swinging back into action on the Nintendo Switch, with a port of the wonderful Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, coming May 4th.
Players will be able to enjoy the game as Donkey, Diddy, Dixie or Cranky Kong, but if you are new to the series or of a younger age group, Funky Kong is going to be your best way to play. As the surfer Kong is always carrying his board, he can double jump, hover with it, but thanks to his atheltic personality, he can also perform infinite rolls and even underwater cork screws. Perhaps the part that will excite some players, spikes will no longer cause Funky Kong any issues, as he can land on his board, saving himself from the spikes.
The game still contains the two player action from the original release, however now, thanks to Nintendo Switch, you can take it anywhere and by sharing a JoyCon, you can reclaim your stolen bananas no matter where you go, or who is with you.
