    Super Easy Mode*

    • Lance Devon

      But it’s a funky easy mode.

      • Tlink7

        I don’t like Funky. I blame Mario Kart Wii 😛

        • Lance Devon

          Then you know nothing of the true funk.

          It’s okay, I’ll be ashamed for you.

          • Tlink7

            I’m not quite that old, sorry~

        • jimmy

          Funk comes from the inside

        • MagcargoMan

  • Fredy Rodriguez Ortega

    why didn’t they stamp the Deluxe word somewhere?

    • Ardisan

      Deluxe and definitive were already taken.

      • Fredy Rodriguez Ortega

        oh, DX was taken too. but well they used the featuring Funky Kong from Donkey Kong series

  • Toni

    this sure is an interesting way to implement an easy mode, looks fun to play as as well and is a super chill character

  • juztplayin12

    never got to play any wii u games so im happy.

    • sexnando

      me too i want them all

      but with my current economics i probably won’t get to play switch either LOL FML

  • Zeebor

    Featuring Funky, from the Donkey Kong Country series.

  • Devlind

    Good thing I waited to get this on the Wii U, no I can play it on the Switch. Now I’m wondering if I should wait to grab Captain Toad and Woolly World too…

    • MagcargoMan

      The won’t be porting Woolly World when they’ve already done a 3DS port and have announced a new Yoshi game for the Switch at E3 that is obviously inspired by Woolly World.

      • Devlind

        Well, they are porting Hyrule Warriors and it was a Wii U game with 3DS port. It could come at some point IMO.

        • MagcargoMan

          There’s a big difference between a Yoshi game and the Musou series. Tecmo is always making multiple version of each Warriors game.

          • Devlind

            I don’t know, there’s a chance we get a complete edition featuring the full game with the features of the 3DS version. Why would they stop porting Wii U games in the first place?

          • MagcargoMan

            They won’t do it. There’s no reason to.

  • TimG57867

    Funky is basically every strength Diddy, Dixie, and Cranky have put together. Talk about easy mode.

  • MagcargoMan

    This is one first-party reveal in the direct I thought was dumb. Yeah, reward people who didn’t buy one the most creative platformers on the Wii U. I hope they don’t add any new levels because I don’t want to have to buy this again.

    Wasn’t expecting Funky Kong to be added. Kinda a shame that he’s an “Easy Mode” but I must say it’s a pretty unique implementation of one. Pretty cool.

    • Eagle367

      Well of course more people buying a game = more money made and more recognition for a franchise so that more money can be made on the sequals in said franchise. Let’s face it almost everything the Wii u had is coming to the switch now just wait for zombiu in some form to come

      • MagcargoMan

        Maybe if they wanted people to buy their game they should have y’know, supported the console it was on instead of killing it?

        • Eagle367

          They can support s dead console with life support for only so long

  • StuOhQ

    I hope this does well (the game deserves it), but I won’t be double dipping. How many of these top Wii U titles will remain exclusives: https://youtu.be/6SUglODVdXw

    • MagcargoMan

      3D World will remain exclusive for sure.

      • Princess_Eevee9

        Expect it at E3.

        • MagcargoMan

          Lol no

      • sexnando

        i hope it wont :C i want to play it, my Laptop is way to old now to emulate.

      • Alberto Saldívar

        I don’t think so

  • Padre

    Poor WiiU.
    Good for every Switch owner.

    • how’s it poor
      i played this game like 3 years ago

      • Padre

        Its poor because soon WiiU wont have any heritage.

        • The games can’t really be reproduced on a lesser console like switch

  • César Tribst

    DK: Tropical Freeze was so perfect, that they didn’t even need to change the name.

  • Coonfoot

    I’m starting to think EVERY Wii U classic (that doesn’t require gamepad-specific controls like touching and blowing in a mic) is gonna be ported to the Switch.
