Most of the gamers who bought Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze on Wii U will tell you it’s one of the best platformers of its generation.
Sadly, since there were fewer Wii Us sold than there were good Kid Rock songs, the vast majority of the gaming public have yet to experience its joys.
That changes next month when Tropical Freeze is ported to the far more popular Switch, and all those who decided to give the Wii U a wide berth will finally get their chance to see what Donkey Kong and chums have to offer.
Yer man Scullion’s been playing the Switch version for review: it’s still under embargo, though, so don’t expect one for a few weeks yet.
What I can do, though, is share up to 15 minutes of gameplay footage with you, so get stuck in.
The below video includes three separate clips: one showing Donkey Kong and Cranky Kong in action (as an introduction for those not familiar with the game), one showing off how great the game looks, and finally a clip demonstrating the brand new Funky Mode, where you get to play as the greatest character in video game history.
Check it out, and keep an eye out for the full review in early May.
