Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Hyrule Warriors Coming to Nintendo Switch

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.

The new addition for the Switch release comes in the way of the super cool, surfing Funky Kong and a new "chill" mode of play.

Nintendo has announced that two Wii U games will find new life on Nintendo Switch.

Wii U games Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze and Hyrule Warriors are both getting enhanced versions for Nintendo Switch.

Hyrule Warriors originally came to Wii U in 2014.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle introduces a new playable hero, Donkey Kong, in upcoming downloadable content. Donkey Kong will be featured in an original story, taking place in a new world. We'll have more information for you when it's available, but in the meantime, keep your fingers crossed for more ports of classic Donkey Kong and Zelda games.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze launches for Nintendo Switch on May 4. In it, you will take control of Funky Kong, a character that has unique abilities like double jump, spin infinitely, float and swim better than anybody else.
