Nintendo E3 2013 Wii U: Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze announced (trailer + images inside!)

Whether you wanted them be or not, Retro Studios has been deep at work on a new Donkey Kong Country game, and they have finally lifted the veil and showed us their work. One of the first things that you will notice is that... gasp!... Donkey Kong and pals swim underwater again in this game!

The enemies this time are viking animals, which works for me, I guess? Also, Dixie is back. I'm pumped, what about you?

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze will be released in November of 2013. Get your wallets ready!

Lighting is probably part of the final touches in game development... well, at least, for Nintendo it might be. Priorities!

So, we know that Donkey, Diddy and Dixie are playable. Who's going to be the fourth playable Kong? Or will it be a Kong at all? My money's on Kiddy, but I'd love to see Funky Kong step in for some platforming for once.

I maybe agree with you.

Though I underestimated the ridiculous detail and amount of work in design and animation, I could still go for some higher poly counts if at all possible.

But I agree. Better lighting would really push this closer to that level we wanna see.

These are basically Nintendo's first ever HD games though. If you look at it that way it's quite impressive.
