Wii U game Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze will be released on 21st February in stores and on the Nintendo eShop, Nintendo has announced.

The game spans six islands and includes old Cranky Kong (as well as Donkey, Diddy and Dixie), whose shop will be run by Funky Kong in his absence.

There's a new special move called Kong POW (presumably not 'prisoner of war') you can pull-off with a partner once you collect 100 bananas. When you use it, all on-screen enemies become items.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
