Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze returns on Switch in May

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at or catch him on Twitter, here.

Here's a new trailer to get those bananas ripening.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze will launch on May 4th for the Nintendo Switch.

The sequel to Donkey Kong Country Returns was one of the WiiU's secret treasures, and will be getting a re-release to give it a chance on the Switch's much wider playerbase. 

Originally announced during a Nintendo Direct back in January, tropical freeze sees a viking-themed armada of penguins, walruses and owls coat DK's home in ice and, you guessed it, steal his bananas again. We thoroughly enjoyed Tropical Freeze and reckoned everyone should jump back into the furry protagonist's underappreciated outing

Along with the release date anouncement, Nintendo has released a new trailer showing off some of the games levels and new features. Tropical Freeze was no walk in the palk as far as platformers go, so this time round players will have the chance to play as the surfboard-toting Funky Kong in an easier difficulty mode.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze will be available to buy on Nintendo Switch May 4.
