    This Week In Sales: Ouch, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. February 19, 2014 . 11:31am

    Sales data acquired from 4Gamer, Media Create and Geimin.net.Last week, Nintendo released Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze in Japan, and the game sold an absurdly low number of copies in its first week.















    Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze releases on Friday, our review will be up then as well. Right now though, let's take a moment to appreciate one of its standout features: David Wise's incredible soundtrack. I mean, come on. This is an awesome song!

    Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Review

    Nintendo proves once again that there's always money in the banana stand.

    synopsis: They chilled out with Donkey kong Tropical Freeze while the production values and the tuned controls remain strong it's also overly challenging and a little chaotic.

    I'll wait a few days before making judgements. It just released in the US, I think that'll be the big market for this game.

    Love this game. It's fantastic. It's visually stunning and a hell of a lot of fun to play. I bought the Pro Controller to play it with and it's beyond awesome!!!

    Just beat the first world/area and this game is FUN!!! I love having three Kong's to tag-team with DK. And that first boss fight was LONG!

    This is going to be good!

    I know right? They won't complain about Dark Souls but they'll complain about Donkey Kong? Seriously?

    Was it hard? Yeah! But I never rage quit, I wanted to keep going, to make it. And I did. The difficulty is what made it fun. Idiots.

    exactly! If you want a challenge, but don't want to be brutalized, go play Mario (not an insult, it's just the difference in the styles). If you want a challenge that'll test your skills play DK.

    The only time I got pissed in the game was the underwater levels. **** any water level in any game ever made in the history of the universe.

    Even the new Mario is hard towards the end. I love that Nintendo is making these games challenging.

    3D World's main levels are pretty easy, but those post-game levels can get pretty brutal. Especially the last three worlds. **** all of them.

    I still haven't picked this up, trying to focus on school right now, but I probably will pretty soon. May get it and DCKR at the same time.

    I finally picked this game up and started playing. The game can be pretty tough at times, but I LOVE hard platformers. The graphics are STUNNING and the music is great. I prefer to play it on my Pro Controller with the D-pad. Good stuff so far. I may try to 100% it? We'll see, MK is about to come out, so who knows how much time I'll spend on that.

    100%? Weakness. 200% or nothing.

    What side character do you guys like: Diddy, Dixie or Cranky?

    I think I like Dixie the most. I wish Cranky controlled more like Scrooge McDuck in Ducktales.

    I bought this today. It's fun but quite challenging!

    I wish they had updated funkys look a bit though. He's so 90s. They should have made him a bit of a hipster/tech head type guy.

    So glad to see Dixie again though. I have no idea why nintendo don't do more with her

    I have this on the Wii U and I enjoyed it very much, however, I never did get round to completing the game, so yes, I will be picking up the Switch version - for the fact that I can take the game elsewhere... ;)
