Watch Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze’s New Funky Mode in Action

Nintendo shows speedrun of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze's Funky Mode on Switch, showing what Funky Kong can do in the game.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze makes its way onto Switch this Friday, and Nintendo released several trailers last week in anticipation. One addition to the game is the new “Funky Mode” that allows players to surf through the jungle as Funky Kong. To show off this new feature, Nintendo showing Funky Mode speedrun.

Finishing a level in Funky Mode allows it to be replayed in Time Attack.  Players can race against the clock for the chance to win either gold, silver or bronze, and they can post their times online. The video shows Funky Kong in action, using his unique surfboard to stand on spikes that would normally hurt other characters and hover in the air after being too late to grab a vine. He has two extra hearts and can also stay underwater for an unlimited amount of time.

You can watch the speedrun for the gold in the video below. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze will be released on May 4th, and you can head over to Amazon to pre-order it if you haven’t already.
