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.

You’re not going to find a lot of new things, but at least you know you’re going to find some awesome things all over again. Regardless of whether or not you’re down for buying Tropical Freeze on Switch, the lone certainty here is that this is the definitive version of Donkey Kong’s latest and greatest. It’s a great thing to have this awesome game playable on Switch now. And Funky’s rad.
Plus with the high number of collectibles — puzzle pieces to find, “K.O.N.G.” letters to discover — and secret levels to discover, I don’t think it’s overstating it that players should definitely go bananas over the Switch version of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.
Going back to the original mode made me quickly remember, but as a returning tourist, I liked having a mode that let me quickly play through the whole game again. The Switch version reaffirms that Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is a fantastic platformer. Having a new character to control and a handheld version of the game is great for previous owners, but the real audience is those who missed the original release.
