Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze coming to the Switch

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze coming to the Switch

What other port of a title for Wii U would you like to see on the hybrid console? It means that many people missed out on some incredible games - and thankfully, they're making their way over to Nintendo's Switch. It's the original game, with multiplayer and all (including portable multiplayer), with a new twist - Funky Kong!

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.




Nintendo has announced that two Wii U games will find new life on Nintendo Switch. The writers here at Nintendo Enthusiast are huge fans of Tropical Freeze, so this is a welcome announcement. We know that Retro isn't developing Metroid Prime 4, and so there's a distinct possibility that the studio is working on a brand new Donkey Kong Country game for the Switch. However, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze could just be Nintendo's way of filling in the gap between Donkey Kong Country releases, as well as give the Switch another big game for spring.

Tropical Freeze was easily one of the finest games available for Wii U, and now the game is set to make its way to Switch.
