Nintendo has shared a new Japanese trailer for Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is a side-scrolling platformer video game developed by Retro Studios, with assistance from Monster Games, and published by Nintendo for the Wii U in 2014.
We get a look at some new gameplay that focuses on basic mechanics and some new features included in this version. One of the interesting additions is an entirely new character, Funky Kong, whose able to navigate through areas that would harm other characters. He’s cool as ice, one might say.
A bunch of areas are being reworked to accommodate this and other changes made to the game, but Tropical Freeze will maintain much of it’s notorious difficulty. And if that’s still too much for you, the Switch version includes a new beginner mode that tones down the hardship so a new player can learn the levels at a slower pace.
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is launching for Switch on May 4th.
Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Dixie Kong and Cranky Kong return for the franchise’s debut on Nintendo Switch! This title includes all the fun and challenge of the original game, plus a new beginner-friendly mode that lets players enjoy this critically acclaimed adventure as groovy surfing simian Funky Kong. Funky Kong can double jump, hover, perform infinite rolls and even perform infinite underwater corkscrews. Thanks to his sturdy surfboard, even spikes can’t slow him down.
