@Dev I think it's just the idea of having both on the same system being better than just Tropical Freeze. To me it feels like Nintendo's probably going to take the approach of focusing on Wii U games for porting and pre-Wii U games coming to Switch via whatever Nintendo's VC replacement is. So like XCX getting a port while XC comes via the VC replacement.

How much will they charge for the switch

@Dev I disagree. The controls and the designs, the variety, a lot of TF is better. However, they are both high quality platformers, and since Returns is longer I much prefer Returns. Plus the Cranky, Diddy, Dixie triangle doesn't work so well, is one strike I can say against TF. I actually have a bunch of minor strikes against TF, but it's the length that really does it.

I would have never guessed Weezing was so useful until I played a HeartGold Nuzlocke!

I'm really happy to have Tropical Freeze on Switch. I prefer Country Returns but Tropical Freeze is very good anyway!

This is one of my favorite games of all time, and for sure my favorite 2D platformer of all time. There were two games left that I have been dying to see come to Switch- Xenoblade X and DKC Tropical Freeze. I am so happy this game is coming, I can't even express my joy in mere words.

I just want to scream AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! Yes!

Never wanted this overrated rehash before, adding in a glorified easy mode doesn't make me want it any more. Wake me up when DK gets the BotW/Odyssey treatment, it seems like DK's been doing mainly the same thing for 20 years.

I've really got into the DK games but I usually give them a shot. I did forget to pick this up on Wii U though.

Debating whether I should save my money and buy the Wii U Selects version or the Switch Port. I find more time to play the Switch so I'll probably go for that. If the Switch wasn't a portable they wouldn't get away with all of these ports, but they do have a good selection to choose from. Besides it gives me time to buy and catch up on FE Warriors and XC2 while everyone's busy enjoying Bayonetta 1/2 and Hyrule Warriors.

I usually write WAAAAY TOO MUCH!
...so I'll apologise now in advance.

It's a great game - I really enjoyed it on the Wii U. If you never owned it and like platformers at all, it's a must-have. Personally, I'm not going to repurchase.

Really wished DKC Returns was bundled with this game. Would'ave justified the 60 dollar price tag.

@Kimyonaakuma I'd recommend picking up the Switch version as it likely fixes the few problems with the Wii U version (e.g. very long load times).

Yep long load times and a strangely laggy loading animation. It never received a single update either,it remained on version 1.0. Other than those very minor issues though it was pretty close to perfect. Superb platformer.

There’s a few Wii U games that I held off on for just such an occasion, this being one. Captain Toad is another. I’ll be getting it.

Another game that released after I had sold the Wii U, so this is a definite purchase from me. DKC Returns on Wii and 3DS is one of my favorite modern platformers.

@OorWullie
This game did receive an update. Can't remember what it fixed, think it was a progression issue in level 3-4.

version 1.1.0

@Gamer83
You're in for a treat. This is my fave 2D platformer if all time. It's also got a soundtrack every bit as good as DKC2. I used to listen to the David Wise tracks on my phone.

It's difficult, and some people lose patience with difficult games but, it's nothing like Super Meat Boy or The End Is Nigh. It's not evil, just provides a good challenge. I set multiple top 50 time trial runs globally, and even had the 2nd fastest time in the world without taking damage for the special level in the final world, which was one of the toughest levels in the game.

I really do love the time trials though. Check this out. They deleted my runs uploaded to YT but this was basically identical to one of my own

@MsJubilee Did they announce the price for the game yet?

Switch FC: SW-1027-6042-8537

Kimyonaakuma

@DTMOF84 No not yet, but I'm expecting it to cost as much as Bayonetta 2 due to it also being a port with no significant additions.

@DTM0F84, since it was a Selects title on the Wii U, it could cost $20, and if it did I would buy it day one.

I love to draw. That's pretty cool, I guess.
