Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze European launch trailer

The Nintendo UK account has just uploaded the launch trailer for Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, which is releasing on Friday. The trailer shows off some of the new items you’ll be able to use in the game, as well as co-operative gameplay and some of Cranky Kong’s animations.

The most interesting thing is that the environments and levels shown during this trailer differ very much from the North American launch trailer we saw a few days ago, so this is definitely worth checking out for a new look at levels and gameplay.

Will you be picking up DKC: Tropical Freeze when it launches this Friday?

    Great trailer, but i find it funny that it says “Now in HD” and the trailer is in 360p lol.

    • Fred

      You can bump it up to 480p…oh wait dang still not HD

    • ghgjf

      the games is in hd not the trailer…your joking right ?

      • val berger

        captain obvious has arrived

      wondering how that can happen in 2014. I’m working on a nearly 3 year old computer and every video I create for anyone has at least 720p. You don’t have to do anything special on youtube to load up a HD video and still, some uploaders can’t manage to understand that SD looks terrible on most 27inch or HDPI-screens. Really annoying, expecially with videogames. Youtube compression ruins even a 1080p-video, so in 480p you can’t really watch it.
      need to have said that for once.

      • jjbredesen

        Yup, can’t agree more. 1080p on youtube looks horrible, the bit rate is just so fucked up, i normally use 720p as it is not as laggy. But what i find is using HTML5 plug in for chrome gives you higher frame rates, i could be mistaken, but i swear it looks so much more smoth, Its like going from 30 to 60 fps, and it loads faster to. But yeah, how on earth they can’t put up HD videos is beyond me XD

        • val berger

          Obviously, creating a satisfying solution for streaming 1080p videos in 2014 is harder to manage than creating self-steering cars or a computer sitting on your glasses.

          • jjbredesen

            Yeah, lets also not forget they are planning on adding 4K streaming later this year, oh god thats going to be terrible, will most likley buffer every second…

  • Fred

    I’ll be downloading it tomorrow at 10pm and getting a great discount on it. I have $10 sitting in my Deluxe Digital Promotion account and the week after Christmas Best Buy had eShop cards for 20% off so I bought a bunch of them. When you consider 20% off $50 is $40 combined with my $10 deluxe digital promotion codes, I’ll be downloading DCK:TF for $30.
    As for the 10pm, in the US they release at midnight-eastern and since I’m in Utah midnight eastern is 10pm.

    ps Everyone can take advantage of the next Best Buy 20% off eShop sale. According to the email Nintendo sent me this morning it happens again on Sunday!

    • val berger

      If you now don’t need an extra harddrive to store those 11+ Gigs, then your good to go :)

      • Fred

        You’re correct. Luckily I have 2TB so that’s not an issue for me

  • steveb944

    Aw man it’s this Friday? I’ll have to hold out. I just bought Splinter Cell with the low price on Amazon and my stack of unbeaten games keeps getting bigger. Till next month!

    Game looks great tho, I like this video best so far as there is better gameplay footage.

    • val berger

      I feel you man. WWHD, W101, SM3DW and even Arkham City and ZombiU. all of them unbeaten and waiting for some more attention.
      But it’s great to know, that there’s an ape waiting for you to play with him, right?

    I’ll not buy it this friday, but later on. I bought to many games already this month, and the first game on my list next month is Darksiders II, older game bad port according many but I don’t care I need a interesting mythology based action adventure on my WiiU, got a 3D platformer, FPS/RPG, Action RPG and Survival Horror, missing an Action game (read Bayonetta 2), a JRPG (read “X”) and an Action/Adventure (Darksiders II?) :D

  • Simon Stevens

    Bought it off ebay, arrived today, amazing game :) me and the little one have been addicted to it, he’s on half term from school, come on baby let the good times roll!

    • val berger

      The only thing that scares me off is, that it won’t be as accessible as SM3DW is. I played Mario with my girlfriend (and we still keep playing it like addicts) and she never really was too much into videogames but still managed to beat the final boss herself while the game still never felt too easy for me (and I consider myself being a bit more experienced gamer ;) )
      I’d just love to see such a Coop experience once again and I do think, that especially in this aspect, SM3DW set a completely new and awesome standard. With DK I really don’t need to buy it right away because I know, I’m gonna play it all alone as it’s gonna be too hard for my beloved one.

      • Rick van der Linde

        Good luck on Champion’s Road, still trying to beat that level with my girlfriend.

        • val berger

          yeah, heard about that level and scared her off already ;D but we’ll gonna make it. somehow.

      • Simon Stevens

        I have to agree you with that :) 3D world was the best possible way of playing a multiplayer game, it’s been nowhere near as fun as that so…. I wouldn’t get your hopes up, as a one player game though, you’d have a lot of fun

        • val berger

          didn’t expect anything else, DK Returns was just the same and still a great game.

          • Simon Stevens

            I’ve always had a great time playing DK games, I’d say this is the best one I’ve played though and my little boy loves it, though it’s the first one he’s played so he has nothing to compars it to

  • WellWisher

    Looks garbage.
    Sincerely,
    Butthurt Metroid fan.

    • val berger

      in this case, I guess I’m quite into garbage and proud.

  • ghgjf

    cant wait for the game…..fucking wicked….

  • val berger

    I’m suddenly wondering why they didn’t throw a HD version of DK Returns on the eshop. Wouldn’t have been too much work and it would be a great download game that still looks better than 90% of the stuff on the eshop. plus, people would be able to follow the DRAMATIC STORYLINE of the DK franchise ;D
