More Wii U Ports Coming to Switch

With the failure of the Wii U, it is a smart move for Nintendo to bring the games released for the system to a much more successful platform, and so Nintendo has announced two ports for the Switch.

Nintendo is set to bring Retro Studios’ 2014 game Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, as well as Koei Tecmo’s Hyrule Warriors, to their latest platform. For those interested, Tropical Freeze is an outstanding platformer that builds through is excellent and responsive gameplay, and fluid, exciting levels. Meanwhile, Hyrule Warriors is a fast paced hack-and-slash that merged the Zelda series with the Warriors series, and had fun missions with an enjoyable story.

For those interested in these games, slight improvements or additions will be made from their Wii U counterparts. Donkey Kong County: Tropical Freeze will include a playable Funky Kong who can use his surfboard to hover through the air, and pass over spikes, although this does look like an addition of an easy mode.

Hyrule Warriors, on the other hand, will include all the previously released content, a playable roster of twenty-nine characters, and the entirety of the campaign. All content released on both the Wii U original and the 3DS Legends release will be accessible on a more accessible version. The game will also retain its multiplayer, however now using split screen and separate Joy-Cons for both players.

Donkey Kong County: Tropical Freeze arrives on May 4, while Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition has been given a spring release window.
