One of the finest 2D platformers of all time, Retro Studios’ Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, launches on May 5 for the Nintendo Switch. The original game was spectacular, but sadly got slept on by a lot of people due to its status as a Wii U exclusive (as we all know, no one likes the Wii U)- hopefully, on the far more popular Nintendo Switch, it can get the success that it deserves.
If, like me, you are excited to go hands on with the game, the good news is you can now at least pre-load it. The pre-load for the game has gone live on the North American Nintendo eShop. The installation size for the game comes in at 6.6GB, which, amusingly enough, is roughly half the file size for the Wii U original. Funny how these things work, right?
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze will launch on the Nintendo Switch on May 5.
