Nintendo is rereleasing Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze on the Nintendo Switch this May 4th.

While the original was launched for the Wii U, this version of the game will support two-player local cooperative play and a brand new playable character. Funky Kong will join Dixie, Diddy, Donkey, and Cranky Kong on their adventure.

This could be Nintendo’s way of giving gamers the chance to play an excellent Donkey Kong game that was missed by a lot of people due to the Wii U’s poor sales. This may not be a new entry in the series, but it’s one of the most challenging platformers ever made.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is available on Wii U and will launch on Nintendo Switch May 4th.
