Easter eggs are, in our view, a lovely way for developers to make little nods to other games, franchises, or any other subject that might otherwise pass a player by. We've discovered one such reference to the divisive Donkey Kong Country TV show in the Switch version of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.

As you can see in the video above, very occasionally when you leave Funky's Fly 'n Buy whilst playing as Funky Kong, Tawks will instruct Funky to "Give 'em the old banana slamma, dude!". The phrase 'banana slamma' was DK's catchphrase in the short-lived TV series.

It's great to see the developers reaching back into the Kong's history, even if this particular aspect hasn't aged particularly well.
