Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze hits Switch on May 4


Unfortunately, seeing as it was released for the Wii U, not a whole lot of people got to play it.

This new version will include the full original game as well as a new mode featuring Funky Kong, who has the ability to use a double jump, hover, infinite rolls, and infinite underwater corkscrew moves.

As you imagine, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze takes advantage of the unique features of the console by allowing you to play it anywhere and share the Joy-Con to enjoy your cooperative action.

Some fans may be disappointed that instead of a new Donkey Kong Country game for the Switch, they're getting an enhanced port of the Wii U version.
