You can barrel-blast into the Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze game, available now for the Nintendo Switch system. It’s got a banana-bunch of new features!



The ultimate Donkey Kong platforming adventure is back! You can play as Donkey Kong in Original Mode and team up with Diddy Kong, Dixie Kong, and Cranky Kong—each with unique abilities—to take on challenges and fight frosty foes. You can also start a game in Funky Mode to play as spectacular surfing simian Funky Kong. His extra hearts and special moves makes this a great mode for first-time players.



  • You can share the adventure with a friend! During two-player co-op gameplay, each player can use a single Joy-Con controller, so no additional accessories are required.
  • You can try to master special moves, including unique abilities like Diddy Kong’s Jet Pack, Dixie Kong’s Spinning Ponytail, and Cranky Kong’s Cane Bounce.
  • There are a ton of collectibles to find that will let you unlock additional content and stock up on useful items.
