Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is the first completely new Donkey Kong side-scrolling action game in three years, exclusively for Wii U!

In this adventure, the Kongs must reclaim their island from the dastardly Snowmads of the northern seas. To do this, they need to set off on a journey around five different islands, plus the frozen Donkey Kong Island.

This will be the first game in the series to be in HD, bringing glorious detail and expression to the world. Depending on the stage, the camera will move to show the action from dynamic viewpoints, bringing you closer to DK's world than ever!

Along with Diddy Kong, Dixie Kong returns as a main character, while Cranky Kong is playable for the first time! Your abilities change depending on which partner you bring along, opening up new choices and possibilities. There’s even a cooperative two-player mode, with each player controlling one of the characters and working together to progress through the game!

  • A brand new Donkey Kong Country adventure in high-definition!
  • Run, leap, and roll across six different islands on your own or with a partner
  • Use each character's unique skills to grab a whole host of collectables

* Additional accessories required for multiplayer mode, sold separately.

Donkey Kong

The leader of the bunch, this headstrong Kong’s strength is his trademark. Whether blasting through enemies with a Barrel Roll or shaking things up with a Ground Pound, Donkey Kong’s definitely got the power!

Diddy Kong

This dinky Kong bombards targets with a high-powered barrage of monkey nuts from his Peanut Popgun. Not only that, his Barrel Jet can help him hover briefly – perfect for getting a little extra distance on those jumps!

Dixie Kong

Dixie’s back in the swing of things! Her hair whip attack keeps enemies at bay, and by spinning her ponytail after a jump she can lift herself even higher!

Cranky Kong

After a spell on the shelf, Cranky leaps into action! He might look a little long in the tooth, but with his unique abilities and years of wisdom too, this Kong's still got what it takes!
