Donkey Kong coming to Mario

Donkey Kong thumbs-up

On Nintendo Direct this morning, Nintendo announced that another game for Wii U will be taken to Nintendo Switch. This seems to be an easy mode of sorts, as Funky Kong is able to double jump, hover in the air, perform infinite rolls, and perform infinite underwater corkscrews. Honestly, he sounds a tiny bit overpowered, but you wouldn't expect anything less for such a righteous dude! You can even enjoy the game in Co-Op using just 2 joy con.

The Switch version includes the original game, plus a new beginner-friendly mode that lets you play as surfing simian Funky Kong.

The Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle story content starring Donkey Kong will release on Nintendo Switch in spring 2018. More information on the game will likely be coming soon, so be sure to stay tuned for that. This new mode will make the game much more accessible to a younger audience.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze launches for Nintendo Switch on May 4. We know that. But ads help us pay the bills.
