Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze has been delayed to early 2014


During today’s Nintendo Direct, Nintendo announced that one of their key Wii U titles for the holiday season, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, has been pushed back to February 2014. Developed by Retro Studios, DKC: Tropical Freeze was originally scheduled to launch on the Wii U on December 6, 2013. Satoru Iwata reaffirmed that the delay for the title is meant “in order to optimum gaming experience for fans.”

You can read Iwata’s statement during the Nintendo Direct below.

“In order to deliver the optimum gaming experience for fans, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze will now launch in February 2014. Developed by Retro Studios, the series’ first Wii U installment stars Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong as they go head-to-head against invaders from the northern seas who have taken over Donkey Kong Island. Featuring intense side-scrolling action with dynamic camera angles, cooperative play for up to two players and beautiful HD graphics, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is the coolest Donkey Kong Country adventure yet.”

    Actually kinda disappointed because it seems that is all you hear out of Nintendo nowadays. “yeah this has been pushed back.””thank you for waiting”
    It asks the question “do you want quality over quantity?”

    Really disapponted by this. Was really looking forward to this in December. So Nintendo, the only thing you have going for wii U this year to combat PS4 adn XBOX one are wind waker, Wii Fit U, which is not really a game, and Super Mario. Not good, Nintendo, not good. 🙁

    why not realease mario Kart 8 in place of donkey kong? Mario Kart 8 looks finished. Is it just me or is Nintedno taking a page out of Ubisoft? Rayman was promised to be a wii U exclusive, gets delayed, and now Nintendo si doing the exact same thing to donkey kong. One of their key franchises. THis woudl have been a really big game for the holidays and nintendo just blew it. You can’t tell me wind waker will save wii U this holiday season. Just one game??!! A decade old game at that. We will get super Mario, but honesly, will that be enough?

    This is NOTHING like what Ubisoft did.

    Ubisoft delayed it to make the game multi-platform.

    Nintendo’s doing it because the game isn’t as good as they’d like. It’s still a Wii U exclusive.

    “You can’t tell me wind waker will save wii U this holiday season. Just one game??!!”

    You should probably do some research on the games coming out for Q4. Wonderful 101’s already out, and we’re getting Mario, Sonic: Lost World, Watch Dogs… Plenty of others.

    This is another sign that Nintendo is struggling with HD games. If they hadn’t wasted time on the gamepad, you’d be playing this game by now.
