Retro Studios and Nintendo have released a brand new trailer for the upcoming ape-based platformer, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. The clip brings an awesome personality for fans of this aging franchise; that’s right, Dixie Kong is back.

Dixie originally showed up in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest way back in 1995 (Man, I’m getting old!), and she was Diddy’s sidekick for that epic adventure. Now she’s here, blonde monkey hair and all, to help these primates tackle foes in yet another adventure.

That bad news, especially for those who don’t know already, is that Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze was delayed out of 2013 and into Feb. 2014. It sucks, for sure, but we’re already so deep in a sea of games that need to be played that I personally welcome this title’s temporal relocation. February just got awesome, folks.

Will you snag Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze when it drops next year?
