Picked this up yesterday and am currently half way through world 2. I've never played this game before and the thing that is really standing out to me is the truly magnificent level design. Its phenomenal.

Consoles: Nintendo Switch and New Nintendo 3ds

As I'm new to this game, I started with the Funky mode and while I can see it's making the game easier, it's still quite difficult. Some of the stages are really tricky and the World 2 boss got me really frustrated at first, but I finally beat his ugly mug and felt victorious.

I'm currently at World 3 and wow, the stages and the music here are really imaginative and impressive. The two previous worlds were also fantastic, but this is the most beautiful one yet.

So while the game is extremely challenging, it more often puts a smile on my face than not. I would compare it to Super Mario Odyssey, not in gameplay or difficulty, but in the pure creativity that's on display. Wow!

I remember dying A LOT when I played in on my Wii U, but this time around, I'm pretty much constantly at 99 lives and I've only hit a couples spots (water world..ugh) where I died more than once.

Just like anything, you'll get better with practice as you learn the levels and how the game works. I do like that about it - it's classic in the sense that it asks you to memorize the levels (especially the rocket or mine cart levels), and I've never had an issue with that.

I don't want to sound negative about this game because it is a great game but for me it has lost some of it's magic for me since I played it at launch on WiiU. I loved this game first time around and thought this would be a great game for me and my wife to play some coop (she never liked the WiiU but loves the Switch really has brought her in to gaming), Funky mode would be great for her and for me to have another go at trying to do a 100% play through. I can't really put my finger on what I have not taken to this time around. I guess maybe it was just a game that was perfect at the time for me but what I look for in games has changed. I'd still recommend this game to anyone interested so many great levels great graphics and music and rock solid gameplay.

Hrm. I'm the opposite. I think it's because I was going pretty sour on my Wii U when I first owned the game, so I pretty much just blew through it. Didn't try to collect the letters of the pieces, just pretty much burned through it to say I saw it.

I really enjoyed it this time around, and I'm trying to get everything (well...mostly everything. Not golds in the time trials...I'll just settle for any medal lol)

@rallydefault some of those gold times are insane fair play to anyone who can gold them all!! I have played some coop with the wife and she is enjoying especially with Funky mode. I've got BattleChasers and Sushi Strikers arriving soon and want to do a 100% no gold medal before then so don't know whether to do a solo 100% with Donkey Kong or Funky. I gave up on the WiiU attempt at 100% because well frustration but don't know if I'd feel satisfied with a Funky 100%.

I did 100% Funky run. Granted I had already 100% with DK back on Wii U.

It still felt satisfying though. And you can play with DK in Funky Mode. You aren't restricted in that sense. So why not do a DK Funky run?

Ended up doing a straight up Funky run 100% Kong letters and Puzzle Pieces. Funky obviously made the game a lot easier but it was good being able to just concentrate on finding all the hidden items and enjoy the flow of the game and it's great sound track.

The wife has enjoyed her play through as well and has replaced A Night in the Woods as her second most played game. Still a long way behind VS Super Mario Bros but could see this taking number 1 place.

Am I going mad but was there a short summery jingle on the opening screens of this on WiiU??

Does Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze for Switch have any weird controls or issues as a result of the port from Wii U?

I found out Captain Toad Treasure Tracker for Switch has a horrible blue blinking dot on screen at all times (when docked). It’s part of the motion control so it kinda bounces around the whole time. Awful.

This happened because the Switch doesn’t have the same functionality as the Wii U so Nintendo had to adapt those functions to the Switch (poorly).

Does DKTF have anything weird like that?

@Dreamliner nothing wired, plays great. Enjoy
