The next game in the Donkey Kong Country series is coming to Wii U with Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, coming to North America in November and to Europe later this year.

In Tropical Freeze, Donkey Kong Island has been overrun by a Viking from the North Seas. In order to take back his home, Donkey Kong needs to set off on an adventure to find other islands.

One of the biggest changes in the game is the use of different camera angles. In addition to side-view, depending on the stage, the camera will turn and show dynamic scenes that “enable new gameplay experiences.”

The game will offer two-player simultaneous multiplayer. In addition to Diddy Kong, Dixie Kong returns as a playable character. Donkey Kong also has a new move that allows him to “pluck” items from the ground.
