About this game
Content Rating: Everyone
This title includes all the fun and challenge of the original game, plus a new beginner-friendly mode that lets players enjoy this critically acclaimed adventure as groovy surfing simian Funky Kong. Funky Kong can double jump, hover, perform infinite rolls and even perform infinite underwater corkscrews. Thanks to his sturdy surfboard, even spikes can't slow him down.

Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze is simply fantastic. Enhanced for Nintendo Switch, it's one of the best old-fashioned 2D platformers of recent years. Perfect for gamers of all ages and skill levels, it provides a lasting challenge that's enjoyable from beginning to end. If you've got a Nintendo Switch and haven't yet experienced Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, it's absolutely essential.
Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze is a delight to play. I recommend the game especially for couples. Katelyn and I have had a blast playing through the game for the second time on the Switch (we first played through on the Wii U four years ago). If you’re looking for a well-polished, incredibly fun game with some couch co-op to boot, you need to pick up Tropical Freeze on the Switch. I can’t think of a thing I would change about the game–it’s simply a masterpiece.
It's a shame, but like many Wii U ports that have popped up on Switch, this is an incredibly high-quality title that frankly doesn't give players enough of a reason to play it again. If you never played this game before and never owned a Wii U then it's a great game to play and you'll adore the challenge, but if you've played it all before, like me? Fun to revisit, but hardly essential.
