Warning: This video contains story and gameplay spoilers.
Today is the release date for Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, with many outlets having already published their reviews. Ours is forthcoming, but in the meantime, check out what the Giant Bomb crew thinks of the game. Jeff and Brad discuss the merits of Funky Kong, some of the differences noticed between Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, as well as a little of the backstory for the game.
We even get a look at the three assist character’s main abilities, including Cranky Kong’s cane jump that looks suspiciously like Scrooge McDuck’s pogo jump from DuckTales. The guys go through some of the main levels, so if you can’t pick up the game today, this is a great video to tide you over until you do.
