Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze Gets New Switch Gameplay Trailer

The original release of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze was one of the Wii U’s best games – but it seemed destined for relative obscurity due to that system’s fairly small install base. The announcement of the Switch re-release was met with largely positive reactions, and one big reason for thas was the addition of Funky Kong as an easy mode to make traversing the game’s tricky platform sections easier. Nintendo has released a new gameplay trailer showcasing not only the work of Donkey, Diddy, and Dixie – but also the tubular Kong as he turns difficult spike sections in a walk in the park. This definitive edition of Tropical Freeze launches on May 4 on the Switch in both digital and physical formats.
