One of the games I was most looking forward to this year was Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. With Donkey Kong Country Returns, Retro showed they were more than up to the challenge of continuing the legacy started by Rare back on the SNES. Having played Tropical Freeze at PAX this year, I can attest that the sequel looked to be shaping up nicely, with smooth controls and fun graphics.
Thus, it was with some sadness that I found out in the recent Nintendo Direct that the game, previously slated to hit sometime this November, is now being delayed a few months till the following year. However, despite that disappointment, I was happy to see this lovely new trailer of the triumphant return of Dixie Kong! Everyone’s favorite ponytailed simian is back, and twirling and bouncing like she never left. Even better, the graphics in this trailer look slightly improved from my PAX demo. Either way, I cannot wait till Tropical Freeze hits stores. In the meantime, enjoy this trailer. It’s more fun than a barrel of monkeys!
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is available for pre-order from Amazon.
