Donkey Kong's always complaining grandfather appears on cover.

Amazon Italy might have just leaked Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze‘s unannounced fourth character.

The Italian retailer recently updated its box art for the game. Now, alongside Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, and Dixie Kong, you’ll see old man Cranky Kong.

Here’s the previously released box art for comparison.

Obviously, until Nintendo officially confirms Cranky Kong as playable, don’t take this as confirmation. But considering there’s a fourth playable character and Cranky is on the box, well, it looks likely.

Thanks, NeoGAF.

    Cool, better than Funky Kong for sure, but it could’ve been a great chance to have King K. Rool return to the spotlight.

      I am both disappointed and willing to give Retro praise for NOT pulling “K. Rool was behind the Tikis!” everyone thought was going to happen from day 1.

        I have a feeling this will be a trilogy and it will have Kremlins in dkcr3

    To unlock him you must complete the game in less than an hour with one life.

    Let me use his two canes for combat.

    Cool, I just recently found out that Cranky Kong was the original Donkey Kong from the arcade game.
