E3 2013: Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Gets Some Cool Screenshots

on June 14, 2013 6:38 PM

Thanks to some new screenshots from E3, we get a closer look at Retro Studios’s Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, which will be released in November 2013 for Wii U.

Donkey Kong is attacked by a group of Viking animals that invade his lands and throw him out. He must fight back and reclaim what was stolen with the help of his friends Diddy and Dixie. You can use the Wii U Gamepad or the Wii Remote to control the characters and multiple players can jump in and help.  The environments manage to keep its exotic feel while giving us more variety in the ice, water and sky stages. I’m also ecstatic that Dixie is finally playable again, since my first Donkey Kong game was Donkey Kong: Diddy Kong’s Quest and I absolutely loved playing as her (that ponytail was the best).
