The excellent Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze on the Nintendo Switch is now with the gaming press and YouTubers. VG24/7 is one publication that has received their copy. They have naturally chosen to showcase some Funky Kong action as he’s a new addition to Retro Studios classic 2D platformer. Our preview of the game will be coming very shortly, so stay tuned for that.
“Funky Kong basically acts as the game’s easy mode, and is perfect if you want to play the game with a friend or relative who is pretty new to games. Funky uses his surfboard in a few cool ways – he can double jump and hover by using it in the air, and if he lands on spikes he won’t be able to move without jumping, but it won’t kill him either. He can also breathe underwater and roll infinitely, and even has more health. Funky really tones down the difficulty, but the catch is that he can only be played in a special new ‘Funky’ mode, though two-player co-op is available in that mode as well.”
