Join the Kongs on Their Brand New HD Adventure in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical 
Freeze on Wii U 
Team Donkey Kong up with Diddy Kong, Dixie Kong or Cranky Kong and
fight the frost playing solo or with a friend 
WINDSOR, ENGLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 02/06/14 --  Donkey Kong and his
D.K. Crew are back for another wild platform adventure in Donkey Kong
Country: Tropical Freeze, launching exclusively on Wii U on 21st
February 2014. This frosty jungle caper features colourful HD
graphics bringing vibrant detail both to the big ape's fur as well as
the lush, dynamic scenery, paired with a chest-thumping soundtrack
composed by the celebrated David Wise. Visit the brand new website
for a taste of all the powerful action, or take a look at the Donkey
Kong Hub to savour some of DK's history. 
This time around, the Kongs have their island home invaded by the
Snowmads: new cold-hearted foes who arrive on longships and, with a
toot of a magical horn, turn the tropical paradise into their frozen
fortress. To make matters worse, when the arctic cyclone sweeps over
Donkey Kong Island, the Kongs are blown far away and must begin an
epic journey spanning six differently-themed islands, to reclaim
their banana hoard and thaw out their home. On each island, a
multitude of fierce and frantic levels await that throw Rambi rides,
underwater antics, epic boss battles and secret exits across your
path. On many occasions, the new dynamic camera twists the action in
a way never seen before, lending a more cinematic point of view to
frenzies of Barrel Cannon blasts and Mine Carts careering off the
rails. 
In good Donkey Kong Country series tradition, DK can team up with a
buddy on his back to gain extra abilities - and this time, there's no
less than three to choose from! The ever dependable Diddy Kong
returns armed with his Peanut Popgun and Barrel Jet move to hover
over deadly gaps. Also returning to the series is Dixie Kong with her
Gumball Popgun, who whips up her blonde locks in the Helicopter Spin
move to gain extra air in jumps. For the first time ever in the
series, Cranky Kong joins the playable cast of characters. Armed with
his trusty walking stick, he can help Donkey Kong traverse spikey
terrain using the Cane Bounce move. When playing solo, seek out the
most suitable buddy to discover the game's many secrets - or team up
with a friend who can take control of a sidekick of choice. 
What's more, each partnership offers a new combined attack called the
Kong POW: collect 100 bananas to obliterate all on-screen enemies and
turn them into useful items. What kind of items? That depends on your
partner! For instance with Cranky Kong, all enemies turn into
valuable Banana Coins which can be used in the shop that Funky Kong
is running. Pop into Funky's Fly 'n' Buy to purchase a range of
helpful items to aid in the adventure, such as new Crash Guards that
protect you from damage when in a Mine Cart, or enjoy collecting
figures from the brand new Capsule Toy Machine. 
Your mad ape skills won't go unnoticed if you feel like showing off,
as the brand new Time Attack mode offers expert players worldwide
online Leaderboards, with the possibility to share replays of your
platform-hopping performances with other players. Learn tricks that
could make you the fastest in the world and climb up those
Leaderboards! Also, if you're skilled enough, you may be able to
unlock Hard Mode, where you are limited to one Kong only and have
only one heart to make it through each level. 
Team up with the Kongs in HD and use your platform-hopping skills to
thaw out their tropical paradise, as Donkey Kong Country: Tropical
Freeze swings onto Wii U exclusively on 21st February 2014, available
as a download from Nintendo eShop, or at retail as a packaged
version.  
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is available on the Nintendo UK
Online Store. Prices will vary between retailers.
