With the Nintendo Switch outpacing the Wii U's sales, it's clear that many gamers skipped Nintendo's last generation console entirely.

Tropical Freeze will still be playable either single-player or via local co-op. However, that exclusivity will be ending later this year, as the critically-acclaimed platformer from Retro Studios is making its way to the Nintendo Switch with additional content.

In their much anticipated Nintendo Direct Mini, Nintendo have today announced that Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze will be coming to the Nintendo Switch. Funky Kong is usually the dude who sells you ammo or items or weapons or what-have-you in Donkey Kong games, but now in Tropical Freeze he's riding a surfboard through levels and generally being the coolest character ever.

This includes Funky Town, a new mode celebrating the return of the fittingly named Funky Kong.

Tropical Freeze releases on May 4, 2018 for Nintendo Switch. The Wii U hit marks the Donkey Kong franchise's first, full-fledged debut on the company's latest console.

Nintendo is adding Switch-exclusive features to its latest Wii U-to-Switch port, however.
