HAWP, Freddie Wong team up for DKC Tropical Freeze video

Screening next Thursday at Sundance

A few months ago, Nintendo held a Wii U video challenge, asking 30 of YouTube’s top content creators to produce short videos inspired by Super Mario 3D World and The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD. After viewing all the selected videos, Nintendo selected the Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin’? team to work with fellow YouTube personality Freddie Wong on a short film inspired by Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.

The short film is set to debut at the Nintendo Chalet in Park City, UT during the Sundance film festival at 10:00am on Thursday, January 16, where visitors will also be able to play titles such as Wii Fit U and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds while hiding out from the cold.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (the game) is set to hit Wii U on February 21.
