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


We learned today that Nintendo is going to continue this trend of porting old Wii U games over to the Switch, as it announced two more games today during its Direct Mini broadcast.

Tropical Freeze is coming to Switch soon, after making its debut on the Wii U, and with it comes a special "New Funky Mode" with a new character and a beginner's mode with special functionality. The game will run at 1080p in TV mode, and feature single Joy-Con split-screen local multiplayer as well.

New for this release is Funky Kong, who can double jump, pull off infinite rolls and infinite underwater corkscrews. and can use his surfboard to bounce across spikes and hover in the air. It makes for a much easier and more chilled run through an otherwise tough game.
