Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze barrel-blasts its way onto Nintendo Switch!

It’s time to swing into action—anytime, anywhere! The critically acclaimed adventure is now available on the Nintendo Switch™ system with a banana-bunch of new features.

The Snowmads have invaded Donkey Kong Island and turned it into their personal frozen fortress. Join Donkey Kong, Diddy, Dixie, Cranky, and—playable for the first time ever in the Donkey Kong Country series—Funky Kong on an epic adventure to unfreeze their island!


Funky Mode: In this new mode, enjoy a range of gameplay updates and the option to play as surfing simian extraordinaire, Funky Kong. Less experienced players may find the additional hearts, refreshed items, and new “skip level” feature very handy.

Funky Kong: He may be a bit of a showoff, but his heart is in the right place. Funky uses his surfboard to hover over obstacles and protect himself from spikes. Speedrunners may also love blasting through levels with his double jumps, infinite rolls, and infinite underwater corkscrews!

Original & Hard Mode: Craving for the classic (and more challenging) experience? Don’t worry purists, Original Mode is included from the beginning and Hard Mode can be unlocked. Just be warned…it’s not for the faint of heart

DK Crew: Master the unique abilities of the DK Crew. Diddy Kong can help out with his Barrel Jet and Peanut Popgun. Dixie Kong can blast baddies with her Gumball Popgun and hover with her Helicopter Spin. And Cranky can bounce on certain hazards with his cane and attack enemies with his…dentures?!

Two-Player Co-op: With a single pair of Joy-Con™ controllers, two players can team up to take on the Snowmads!
