Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Switch Port Announced, Release Date Set

Bayonetta 1 and 2 amiibo support confirmed

During the January 11th Nintendo Direct, Nintendo showcased a new trailer featuring a brand new character and mode. This makes the Switch port all the more important, as it means that a much bigger audience has a chance to give it a shot.

And now it's making its way over to the Switch. For those who missed out the first time around, The World Ends with You is set in Japan's real-life fashion and shopping district, Shibuya, and features slick visuals and music and a unique touch-screen-aided battle system. Part of the way Nintendo achieved this was by porting games from the Wii U over to the Switch, as it did with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Pokken Tournament DX.

You can read our full review of Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze for the Wii U for more details about the game. Finally, we'll get two new costumes for Link and Zelda based out their outfits from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

You just can't keep Hyrule Warriors down. More information on the game will likely be coming soon, so be sure to stay tuned for that. He can even survive spikes with his trusty surfboard.

Tropical Freeze will still be playable either single-player or via local co-op.
