Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze will see the return of Funky Kong

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is Nintendo’s next big release and this time, Donkey Kong has multiple friends to help out including Diddy Kong, Dixie Kong, and Cranky Kong. Now, Nintendo has made an interesting tweet involving another one of the Kongs who is likely not going to be playable.

Nintendo of America’s Twitter account posted a tweet the other day that said “Get stoked! Funky Kong makes a radical return in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, coming to #WiiU on 2/21.” The tweet also included the above image of how Funky Kong looks in the game.

While it’s not an impossibility that he’s playable, this seems like quite an anticlimactic way to announce it. Likely this just means he is returning as a character to the series as he was missing from Donkey Kong Country Returns.
