Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Brings the Chill to Nintendo Switch in May

The Nintendo Switch had an excellent 2017, which was driven in part by Nintendo's focus on putting a bunch of first-party franchises on the console early.

On Nintendo Direct this morning, Nintendo announced that another game for Wii U will be taken to Nintendo Switch. Later, Nintendo released Hyrule Warriors Legends on 3DS, which featured additional characters from portable characters like Spirit Tracks and A Link Between Worlds.

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. We do know that the entire game will be playable in local co-op, with one Joy-Con being used by each player. New costumes themed around Breath of the Wild are also included. Capable of double jumps, infinite rolls and hovering, it's a great mode for newcomers. If Tropical Freeze gave you trouble on Wii U, then, it might be worth revisiting on Switch and playing as Funky Kong.

Donkey Kong will be exclusive to this brand new adventure, which is planned for release in spring 2018. More information on the game will likely be coming soon, so be sure to stay tuned for that.
