I feel like, at this point in time, I should be throwing all sorts of ape puns at you. Donkey Kong’s newest commercial is really a-peeling. You know? That sort of thing.
I just don’t have it in me. Nintendo’s been rolling out the advertisements and hype for this upcoming platformer for a few months now, including an odd ape-ppearance at the VGX show a few months back.
Which is sort of weird, given that a lot of people suggest that Nintendo typically phones it in when it comes time to market their offerings. They say that’s the reason why The Wonderful 101 commercially bombed, and I tend to agree with that notion.
Yet here Nintendo is, picking the proverbial bugs off of Donkey Kong’s back and actually pitching out advertisements for Tropical Freeze.
The game seems to be particularly tough, something a lot of classic gamers like myself want a lot more of these days. And the character switching and power combining between Donkey, Diddy, Dixie and Cranky? Bananas.
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze will swing onto the Wii U on February 25th. We’ll have more on the game as it comes, so stay tuned.
