Cranky Kong goes bananas in new Donkey Kong trailer

That is one energetic old monkey

We got lots of new info from today's Nintendo Direct, and amongst all the news was the latest trailer for Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. It shows off just what you'd expect with all the crazy platforming featuring the Donkey Kong family. Cranky Kong is one energetic monkey for being so old.

I still remember him telling me about his good old days back on the Super Nintendo version of the game. Remembered when his dead wife would visit you as a ghost in Donkey Kong 64? Creepy.

Also there's a badass looking polar bear boss featured in the new trailer. Neat.
