There’s a pair of new trailers, featured below, for the Switch port of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze from Nintendo.
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for the Nintendo Switch brings back the iconic Kong as the head of the clan as he bounces his way through legions of in-game enemies and he cuts a swath through the difficult levels in the game. The game has been adjusted with more interesting levels from the 2014 version. There’s also a new beginner’s mode included so new players can learn the levels.
Barrel-blast into a critically acclaimed Donkey Kong adventure as this beloved franchise makes its Nintendo Switch™ debut with a banana-bunch of new features. Traverse islands packed with platforming perfection and nonstop action as the classic Kongs in the original game, or mix things up by playing the story as Funky Kong in new Funky Mode! Arctic invaders have turned Donkey Kong Island into their personal frozen fortress, and it’s up to you to save the day. Play as Donkey Kong in Original Mode and team up with Diddy Kong, Dixie Kong, and Cranky Kong—each with unique abilities—to overcome platforming challenges and frosty foes.
As we leaned previously, there’s a new member of the Kong family, Funky Cong. He’s able to use his surfing skills to navigate through areas that would be impassable for other characters. Both trailers feature both original and new characters in a variety of gameplay scenarios. Other characters like Cranky Kong make appearances as well, and these characters will be in the new video game as well.
There’s a lot of gameplay that shows off the gameplay and control styles of the characters in the game too, although most of this will be very familiar to those who played other versions.
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is out in just a couple weeks on May 2, exclusively for Switch.
