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

However, that exclusivity will be ending later this year, as the critically-acclaimed platformer from Retro Studios is making its way to the Nintendo Switch with additional content.

While the game will largely remain the same, it will feature a new mode starring Funky Kong.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for Switch will release on May 4th, and we'll be sure to bring you more information on the game as soon as it becomes available.




Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle is getting a new playable hero, and it's none other than Donkey Kong. The writers here at Nintendo Enthusiast are huge fans of Tropical Freeze, so this is a welcome announcement. This new mode will make the game much more accessible to a younger audience.

Donkey Kong will be exclusive to this brand new adventure, which is planned for release in spring 2018. Funky sports a double jump, hover, infinite rolls, and infinite corkscrews underwater - he seems like an easy mode of sorts and looks really fun to play.

Are you excited about playing Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze on the Switch?
