Join us and get funky at Insomnia62


Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for Nintendo Switch will be playable for the first time in the UK at Insomnia62, the country’s biggest gaming festival, taking place 30th March to 2nd April at the NEC Birmingham.

You’ll be able to give the game’s new Funky Mode a go too! It’s a chill new mode that allows you to play as Funky Kong, who’s able to double jump, hover, perform infinite rolls and even perform underwater corkscrews! Thanks to his sturdy surfboard, even spikes can't slow him down!
