A new Donkey Kong Country game was announced during Nintendo Direct today and it looks pretty sweet. In Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, Donkey Kong island has been overrun with vikings from the North Sea. Its up to Donkey Kong, along with both Diddy and Dixie, to fight off the invaders. The new game brags about featuring full HD graphics, allowing you to sit and stare as Donkey Kong’s fur waves in the wind. Seriously, that was a feature mentioned. While the game remains true to its side scrolling roots, certain moments feature Dynamic 3D and allow the camera to move throughout the environment to give players new angles on certain situations. The feature was showcased with a barrel jumping scene that looked pretty sweet.
Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze is headed only to the WiiU and will be out later this year.
