  • Donkey Kong swinging into Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle on Switch

With the Nintendo Switch outpacing the Wii U's sales, it's clear that many gamers skipped Nintendo's last generation console entirely.

And for fans of Rabbid Peach, you'll be thrilled to know that she gets screen time in the video, as well as a part in DK's announcement tweet.

While the game will largely remain the same, it will feature a new mode starring Funky Kong. This makes the Switch port all the more important, as it means that a much bigger audience has a chance to give it a shot. Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze is out on May 4th.

As announced in the Nintendo Direct Mini this morning, Tropical Freeze will hit the Switch in a few months.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is a brand new adventure to life featuring Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and Yoshi, and four Rabbids heroes: Rabbid Mario, Rabbid Luigi, Rabbid Peach, and Rabbid Yoshi. Alternatively, the Tropical Freeze port could be Nintendo's way of giving Switch owners a Donkey Kong Country game so Retro can work on something else entirely. You can read our full review of Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze for the Wii U for more details about the game.
