With its release now a little over a month away, Nintendo is starting to gradually reveal more minor pieces of information for Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. At the end of last year we were shown the return of Funky Kong, and now there's confirmation that a favourite from Donkey Kong Country Returns — and from the original Super NES days — will feature in the new title.

Nintendo of America has confirmed that Rambi the Rhino, so effective at rampaging through stages, will appear in Tropical Freeze.

Naturally fans of the franchise will be hoping for more surprises, old and new, in Tropical Freeze. Are you pleased that Rambi is back, and are there any other animal buddies that you hope will make a return?
