Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Hyrule Warriors Coming to Nintendo Switch

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Brings the Chill to Nintendo Switch in May

The Nintendo Switch had an excellent 2017, which was driven in part by Nintendo's focus on putting a bunch of first-party franchises on the console early.

Donkey Kong will be exclusive to this brand new adventure, which is planned for release in spring 2018.

Nintendo has announced that Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is coming to the Nintendo Switch. The game will run at 1080p in TV mode, and feature single Joy-Con split-screen local multiplayer as well.

The Switch version includes the original game, plus a new beginner-friendly mode that lets you play as surfing simian Funky Kong. 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.

Regardless, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is a great game, and it should be a strong addition to the Switch's library, especially for those that skipped the Wii U.

Tropical Freeze, the side-scrolling platformer developed by Retro Studios, originally arrived on Wii U back in 2014. This new mode will make the game much more accessible to a younger audience.
