Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze!

Surprise! I bet you didn’t see that one coming.

Donkey Kong Country Returns saw this amazing series come back, but I feel as though Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze was truly where the franchise was brought back. It was a true shame that it didn’t get much recognition on the Wii U, so a release on the Switch is much deserved.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze has seen some fantastic review scores already and we are so thrilled to see this gem get a new lease on life.
