Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze coming to Wii U

First HD installment in series coming from Retro to Nintendo's latest console in November.

Nintendo today announced Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for the Wii U, the first installment in the series for a high-definition platform.

In addition to side views, the game will feature different camera angles to enable new gameplay experiences, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata said.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze will also include a two-player mode, while characters Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong will be available in addition to Donkey Kong.

The game launches in November and is in development at Retro Studios.

I still can't get used to DK's Scooby Doo voice... they should have kept his voice from DK64. That was a perfect fit.

This is good that Donkey Kong Country series has made it to Wii U. This is my favorite Ninetendo series. I shall play this before I get into PS4. Nintendo seems that it may be able to turn things around if the Big N can get Donkey Kong Country Tropic Freeze, Mario Kart 8, Super Mario 3D World released without delay for Christmas 2013.

Nintendo is officially wasting Retro's time. Any team at Nintendo could've made this game, Retro should be working on Star Fox, Zelda, another Metroid or a new IP.

I'm a bit disappointed that THIS is what Retro has been working on. I'm sure it will be great, but I was hoping for something else - Star Fox, F-Zero, Metroid, etc. I was hoping that the rumors about Nintendo trying to buy the rights to Banjo and Perfect Dark would be true, however unlikely it would be. A Retro Studios take on Perfect Dark would be really interesting. Looking forward to this game, though. If it's anything like DKCR, it should be excellent.

Damn, I was hoping for a big unveiling from Retro Studios. Thought they had earned the trust from Nintendo to make a revolutionary Zelda game. A completely own take on Zelda like Retro did with Metroid.

@Megavideogamer Don't forget about Sonic: Lost World.  That game looks amazing and appears to be a Sonic-styled twist on the SMG formula.

@MrJoker6688 I disagree.  After what Retro Studios has done to revive Donkey Kong Country, I doubt that Nintendo could so easily trust the franchise to any other team.  Retro Studios has not only brought Donkey Kong back, they have improved it (with smoother mechanics [discounting the shake roll]).  They may very well be the only team qualified for the job of making a sequel which can live up to the standard which DKC:R set for the series.

@YearoftheSnake5 Ignore this person. He just thinks that Nintendo games = bad games and he thinks Call of Duty is the greatest game franchise of all time.
