Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is coming to Nintendo Switch with Funky Kong as a playable character! It releases May 4.

What do you think? Are you double-dipping?

Will be my first go!

Yes i've already got it but will buy it for the Switch



Eventually, I will double-dip this one since Tropical Freeze is one of my favourite games of all times. However firstly, Nintendo has to sell me a Switch. At this point, I don't see a single new game for 2018 that I am interested in. Therefore, I won't buy a Switch now. We will see what Nintendo announces.

By the way, I am not happy with Funky, here. Tropical Freeze is great because it is hard. I wonder if Dark Souls comes also with an "assist mode"...

I really liked Tropical Freeze on Wii U but I have no reason to buy it again. It's nice to have Funky Kong as a playable character but he seems to be an easy mode instead. I would've considered it if it had Returns as well.

I programmed a simple tool that copies all Switch screenshots from an SD card and places them to folders according to the game:

Tropical Freeze was really close to the top of the list of games I wanted to see ported over from the WiiU, but I really wasn't expecting it this year knowing that Nintendo already had a couple of 2D platformers scheduled for a 2018 someone who never owned the WiiU - and doesn't get particularly excited by Kirby/Yoshi games - this was a really welcome and surprising announcement!

I was hoping for something along the lines of New Super Mario Bros. - and I feel like this more than ticks that box! Very happy!

I'm double dipping on this one for sure, always been a huge DK fan. This is probably the best game on the wii u to me and DK on 3ds is so underappreciated it's crazy. Would be nice to see some banana themed joy con

I really enjoyed playing DK:TF, but I never got around to finishing this game on the Wii U before I traded mine in so I'll probably get the Switch port.

I'm just resigning myself to the fact that I'll be repurchasing a bunch of games on Switch that I already own on home consoles because I'll actually play them here.

The last DK I actually played was Country on the SNES. Liked it a lot though so I'd guess I should pick this up?

Since I skipped Tropical Freeze on Wii U, I’ll definitely be getting this one

Double dipping just like Bayonetta 1 and 2 probably gonna get this one day one as well.



If they put any extra "difficult" content in I would definitely double dip. But as it stands I only play the game every few years or so, so there's no reason to double dip.

Bundling it with Returns would have also made the deal. Returns in HD would be gorgeous!

I don't care about this cos I'm happy with the Wii U version but I just wanted to drop in and say "he's a real virtuous dude" was the best line in this direct.

Converted from Sony to Nintendo during 7th gen and never looked back.


One thing that someone brought up and struck me is that loading times will be way faster than it was on Wii U. I forgot about how long it took to start up the world map.



Did they make this a selects title on Wii u.

This is my favourite 2d platformer - so of course I have to buy it again.

How come I read some people lamenting that Returns isn't getting ported too? Not that Returns is bad at all; it's an excellent game too. But Tropical Freeze is superior in every way imaginable. I mean... DK can SWIM! He's not like an Inkling in water!
