Dixie Kong stars in latest Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze trailer

Everyone’s favorite (and probably the only) golden-haired primate is back for a new HD adventure on Wii U.

Nintendo’s Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for Wii U is bringing back Donkey and Diddy Kong for a new side-scrolling adventure. The game will also see the return of the premier female member of the Kong family, Dixie. In a new trailer, Nintendo showed off Dixie’s abilities in the new game.

Check her out in the trailer below:

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is due out in February 2014 following a recent delay. It is the latest game from developer Retro Studios, which produced Donkey Kong Country Returns for the original Wii. It has Donkey, Diddy, and Dixie facing off against a gang of evil viking animals. The three major characters each have their own special abilities and add variety to the co-op multiplayer mode.

Donkey Kong Country originally debuted in 1994 for the Super Nintendo. Developer Rare produced the game and its two sequels for the 16-bit console. In 2010, Retro Studios took over the franchise and released Donkey Kong Country Returns for the Wii. It is an entirely new game in the franchise that brings back many of the elements of the Super Nintendo titles. Returns also saw a re-release on the 3DS in May. The title is known for its difficulty and chaotic, colorful visuals.
