Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze E3 Super Post

June 12, 2013

A few years ago (E3 2010), Retro Studios announced their next major AAA title. A game that brought back a beloved franchise, one that brought me into the wonderful world of video games. Donkey Kong Country Returns received a lot of excitement upon its announcement and release, and was considered one of the best titles for the Nintendo Wii. A 3DS edition was released in May with additional levels and features.

Retro, believing they could do a little more with the Donkey Kong Country Franchise, decided to make a sequel to this fantastic game series. Let’s take a look at Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.

It’s on Like Donkey Kong on Wii U!

Help Donkey Kong and his friends get back their home from Vikings in the Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze game from Retro Studios. All the challenging ground-pounding, barrel-blasting and mine cart action from the Donkey Kong Country series is back, along with a bushel of new game-play elements and features.

• Dixie Kong is back to join the adventure as a playable character alongside Diddy Kong. Either can buddy up with Donkey Kong, and each character offers a different game-play experience.
• Explore new dynamic levels that twist, turn and transform in new ways. Plus enjoy spectacular views from the dynamic rotating camera.
• On their journey to reclaim Donkey Kong Island, Donkey Kong and his friends travel across five islands with a variety of stages that include underwater areas and frozen environments.
• Enhance Donkey Kong’s exploration and unlock secrets with a new move that involves “plucking” items right out of the ground.
• Team up with friends in a cooperative multiplayer mode that lets two players share in the fun together.*

Thanks to Destructoid, we know that the original composer of the DKC trilogy for SNES is returning to work on this game, and is working with the composer of the last game, Kenji Yamamoto, as well. (Yamamoto previously worked on Super Metroid and Metroid Prime’s soundtrack as well.)

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze arrives in stores this November.

June is going to be a crazy month for announcements! There will be big DVD announcements, Video Game News, and more! Be sure to check back here at SaveUsFromObscurity and at @TSilentWatcher regularly to stay up to date with the latest news and reviews!
