Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Switch Port Announced, Release Date Set

Sonny Ross

The two titles were highlights of the previous console cycle but given the Wii U's small install base, many potential players will have missed them (granted, Hyrule Warriors was also on 3DS, but visually it was a scaled-down experience).

The new addition for the Switch release comes in the way of the super cool, surfing Funky Kong and a new "chill" mode of play.

In their much anticipated Nintendo Direct Mini, Nintendo have today announced that Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze will be coming to the Nintendo Switch.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is a marvel. We'll have more information for you when it's available, but in the meantime, keep your fingers crossed for more ports of classic Donkey Kong and Zelda games.

Plus, it means that Retro Studios is likely hard at work on a new game.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is a brand new adventure to life featuring Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and Yoshi, and four Rabbids heroes: Rabbid Mario, Rabbid Luigi, Rabbid Peach, and Rabbid Yoshi. The writers here at Nintendo Enthusiast are huge fans of Tropical Freeze, so this is a welcome announcement.

The Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle story content starring Donkey Kong will release on Nintendo Switch in spring 2018.
