Original Thread: No Country for Cold Men: Let's Play Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze



Donkey Kong Country Returns was a big success, selling around 9 million units across the Nintendo Wii and the 3DS. Retro has been no stranger to creating sequels to their beloved games, so in 2014 they released the next gorilla-sized installment for Donkey Kong! Only there was one problem... it released on the Wii U. The Wii U was a commercial flop, especially following the juggernaut of the Wii, so Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze didn't stand a monkey's chance in a No Banana factory of ever matching Return's earnings. Despite this, Tropical Freeze became a fan favorite, earning tons of critical praise and selling around 2.5 million copies. It was everything people loved about Retro's previous outing, only featuring better graphics, more Kongs, and even more creative levels. Once the game was re-released on Switch, the game was hailed as one of the best side-scrolling platformers of all time, and it quickly eclipsed the Wii U original's sales. So get ready to add one more voice onto the pile of accolades as I (TheJayOfSpade) and my Funky Bunch of co-commentators (ChorpSaway, FutureFriend, and Taoc) ride out this tubular wave! In this LP, I'll be grabbing 100% of the game's collectables, and I'll even be showing off the time trials for every level in separate videos. Heck, I also played through all the stages on Hard mode, just to show you lovely viewers all the unlockable art! Get ready for a game to remember, this is just the frosted tip of the iceberg!

Thanks to HandDrawnSquare for the wonderful art and thanks to Jordan for the thread title!
