Releasing these two screenshots
confirmed that Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
, developed by Retro Studios
for Wii U, will arrive on February 21st. In Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, all the challenging ground-pounding, barrel-blasting and mine cart action from the Donkey Kong Country series is back, along with a bushel of new gameplay elements and features. Dixie Kong is back to join the adventure as a playable character alongside Diddy Kong. Either can buddy up with Donkey Kong, and each character offers a different game-play experience.
On their journey to reclaim Donkey Kong Island, Donkey Kong and his friends will travel cross five islands with a variety of stages that include underwater areas and frozen environments. You will enhance Donkey Kong's exploration and unlock secrets with a new move that involves "plucking" items right out of the ground.
