DKC: Tropical Freeze has such charming idle animations

Donkey Kong plays Donkey Kong

Idle animations — or should I say good idle animations — happen infrequently enough that I’m usually caught off guard when I happen to leave my character waiting around. I shouldn’t be surprised to see that Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze excels on this front after Donkey Kong Country Returns, but here we are. This time around, DK plays various 3DS games.

The above video breakdown by GameXplain goes from “Hey, that’s neat” to “Jeez, how much time did Retro Studios spend on this?” Someone must have really cared. Be sure to stick around for Diddy’s bizarre (and kind of adorable) yawn, and Dixie’s air guitar.
