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

Adjust Comment Print

Tropical Freeze is jumping onto Nintendo Switch later this year, the company confirmed earlier today. What other port of a title for Wii U would you like to see on the hybrid console?

As you'd expect, the game support co-op play using two joy-con separately as well. The Nintendo Switch version of the game will contain the same content as the original Wii U game and introduces Funky Kong as new character. New costumes themed around Breath of the Wild are also included. Playing as Funky Kong lowers the difficultly of the game allowing players to double jump, hover, infinite rolls, and infinite underwater corkscrews.

Now, in brand new story content, Donkey Kong will be exclusive to this brand new adventure that takes place in a new world.

As announced in the Nintendo Direct Mini this morning, Tropical Freeze will hit the Switch in a few months. We don't have an official release date for Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition just yet, though Nintendo says that it'll be available this spring.
