Originally released in 2014 on the Wii U and now it is available on the Nintendo Switch! Donkey Kong is one of the most iconic gaming characters, up with the ranks of Pac-Man and Q-bert and now we can enjoy playing a “re-release” of his latest game Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.

The Donkey Kong Country series is a side-scroller platform game and Tropical Freeze continues that style. In the original game, you play as Donkey Kong and you can get some sidekicks to assist you like Diddy, Dixie and Cranky Kong. They provide additional support to DK to make things a bit easier. In the Nintendo Switch version, you can now play as Funky Kong, who ran the shop, he doesn’t get any help from sidekicks but he himself have some Awesome moves like, Floating, double jump, standing on spikes and unlimited breath under water.

The story is very cool (literally) and as per normal there are bonus things to collect in stages that will make you want to play them again if you are a collector. The graphics are what you expect and apart from little touch ups, there isn’t much difference from the Wii U version. The game is about R750 which is a bit rough for a re-release title but a Donkey Kong fan will love the game if they did not get to play it on the Nintendo Wii U.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is a cool game and awesome to have on the Nintendo Switch but I would like to play a brand new title and not a port over from the Wii U. Let’s hope we get to see some Awesome original Nintendo games soon on the Switch.
