Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze bounded onto the scene during the E3 Nintendo Direct presentation, a 2.5D platformer featuring dynamic camera angles and the return of Dixie Kong. Beyond the delightful colour palette, by far the most interesting aspect seems to be some ornery pirate critters who frankly seem to deserve a game of their own.
As far as we can tell, it's being developed by Retro Studios. Frankly we're a little underwhelmed since the Metroid Prime creators have been shrouded in secrecy for many months, but the Donkey Kong Country games are always good for a laugh. Tropical Freeze is expected to release later this year on Wii U.
