Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is looking good on Switch despite its price

0

We do get faster loads and less file size though

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is shaping up very nicely if this new footage is any indication. The game already looked fantastic on Wii U, but at this point the Switch's extra power makes it really pop.

Again, we now know that Tropical Freeze will debut for $60 on Switch compared to the Wii U's $50 price. We also know that it loads roughly twice as quickly on Switch, and that it takes up about half of the file size. Finally, there's a new Funky Mode that allows players to utilize Funky Kong in all his glory on top of Donkey, Diddy, Dixie, and Cranky.

Yesterday I half-joked that Nintendo should cut the price before this game launches and I'll keep campaigning for that. But I'll also be the first in line to replay Tropical Freeze as it's one of the best platformers of the past decade -- $10 Switch tax or not.
