Random facts about DKC: Tropical Freeze: 1080p, David Wise composed the entire soundtrack, and Funky runs the item shop — GameXplain (@GameXplain) December 18, 2013 Noted composer David Wise is also back to compose the soundtrack for the game, after composing the soundtrack for all three of the original Super Nintendo games. Are you excited for the release of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze? local_offer donkey kong country tropical freeze Nintendo wii u stars Further Reading Why Nintendo discontinued the NES Classic Nintendo will not have an E3 press conference Nintendo profits are up 520% Breath of the Wild sells 3.8 million units Is Nintendo shafting Axiom Verge because of Dan Adelman? Nintendo doesn't need 3rd parties, says Stardock CEO Shota i said that david wise would come back months ago to make music for tropical freeze and no one cared RockieOllie I cared! The music is orgasmic! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9oJ_b4zB4Q And the other ex Rare devs are working on a eShop 2D plat-former as well: http://www.polygon.com/2013/9/11/4721764/the-unlikely-legend-of-rusty-pup-footage-revealed It looks like the Rare guys are finding their way back to Nintendo! Shota that’s great news! Thomas Vienna The trumpet’s trills and lipping-up is kind of excessive in that song, but it’s great otherwise. 🙂 Mithiragi Sounds like Maynard Ferguson haha Leo I’m not really into jazz… :S But it’s David Wise… so on his genius mind i trust! I bet that the soundtrack will have a lot more variety! D.M.T Donkey Kong being 1080p doesn’t surprise me, it’s a 2D game I expect it to be 1080p. DragonSilths Every Nintendo Wii U game after Super Mario 3D World should be 1080p 60 fps. bizzy gie It’s 2.5D and has 3D points throughout the game. RockieOllie I really can’t wait to play this game. DKC has always been more challenging than NSMB for me. I am ready to put pushed to my limits! Magnus Eriksson I was interested before. But I kind of got tired from sidescrolling platformers from Nintendo, and on Nintendo, now. So Ill wait a while before picking it up. I think I will pick up some things I missed, and wait for MK8 instead. But I will buy it, just not now. D.M.T You can’t buy this game now even if you wanted to because the game is not in stores right now, it will launch on February 21, 2014. You have 2 months now to rest from sidescrolling platformers since you’re so tired of them. Magnus Eriksson Nah, lets call it a year or so. I love the game, but I feel to wait a while now 🙂 Mike A Gee whiz buddy by than it be out on the 3DS! The Clockwork Being Really would have like Funky Kong to be a new playable character but him running the shop is fine. It would make for some fun dialogue between all the characters. Although I think he will acting like a big douchy Cranky Kong like: ”Oh I can do what you guys are doing all while look cool and without losing a life!”.Oh and people you better care that David Wise is involved in this game. You heard that song in the Cranky Kong trailer? Yeah there is alot of that and better then that. Really looking forward to this game. RecheDiazrivarola my body is ready Fred I love GameXplain’s Analysis videos they are really well done. DragonSilths Hate GameXplain. Every Zelda game or video of his about Zelda he bashes it and says every Zelda is the same. Unsubscribed to that fucker. Agent721 I can’t wait for this game! Time to fire up the old SNES and play the OG version! Jack5221 I for one am really excited about this game. Lots of really good platformers coming out next year. This one is my most anticipated. Zuxs13 Im not excited for the game, but i am glad Nintendo is releasing more games. Bob Charlie Will DKTF be better than or be on par with Rayman Legends, though? Nintendo is bringing so many great Indie scrollers to Wii U in 2014 and that means DK needs to be incredible to warrant a purchase from me. But what do I know? I’m high… ¦ ) MujuraNoKamen If it’s a s good as Returns on Wii then it’ll be incredible. But it had better be super-incredibly-amazing since Retro turned down Metroid to do this. Rabbi Bongstien My Wii U need this. It has been asking me for it all year. I feel bad i can’t get it one for Xmas but I’m sure it;ll understand. Agent721 Your name is ridiculously funny, Rabbi! Rabbi Bongstien Well that’s what happens when you suffer from chronic chutzpah. Alex0714 Never been this excited for DK game since DK64! Pikachief I only played a little of Donkey Kong Country Returns but I didn’t seem to like it :/ Gonna have to pass on this one. I grew up with DKC3 and I LOVED it. My life goal at the time was to beat the volcano. These games look and feel more like DKC1 and DKC2 though, which I personally do no like :/ But! There are more fans who like those 2 than DKC3, so I’m glad they made it more like those 2. Leo I also don’t like DKC Returns, but it seems that Tropical Freeze is more in line with the SNES games, so maybe i will give it a chance. I’m still skeptical though. GABRIEL GARCIA Yeeeeeeee Leo I miss Donkey Kong sounding like an actual monkey and not a man pretending to be a monkey :X Christopher Acuna Would be great if they made it like Mario 3D World but this will do for now. Can’t wait to play this game 🙂 DragonSilths I still really don’t give a damn about the DK franchise. Even in the SNES days just never got into it. So this will be the 1st Retro game I skip. Rinslowe Expectation on Retro subsided a long time ago… Now I’m just hanging out to go bananas on this title! Can’t wait. Asavarii Want want want!!! Michael Hancock The game looks fucking stupid, dated and uninspired. Forbsz Can’t wait it’s gonna be awesome! jrob23 Man, I have to play and beat DKCR in a hurry. But it’s buried behind a bunch of games. 🙁 Wiiluigi I know exactly what you mean. I keep saying this over and over. Everyone keeps saying nintendo doesn’t have games. My back catalogue for the wii u and 3ds is ridiculous. Michael Hancock and Wii. GuardiansFan all wii u games are 1080p after being upconverted so i highly doubt they mentioned it without it being 1080p natively. Shigeru Miyamoto i was excited for this game but now that it’s delayed so people are forced to only buy mario for christmas . i’m over it. Fuzunga I thought he was doing the music with Kenji Yamamoto. fabian just compare these two screenshots and see how much the visuals have improved since they first showed it for the first time: http://nintendoeverything.com/wp-content/gallery/donkey-kong-country-tropical-freeze_5/dk-13.jpg http://wiiudaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/dkc-tf-4.jpg Wiiluigi Game looks much better then when first presented. Reminds me of DK64. I just wish it was in expansive setting like DK64. jdiaz1994 David Wise? The genius who made the soundtrack for Diddy Kong Racing? Hell yeah!!!! InterTreble Give me this game. Now.
