Cranky Kong Bounces Into Action For Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

When Donkey Kong returns for the upcoming Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for the Wii U, he won't be alone.  Diddy and Dixie Kong will be at his side as additional playable characters, but old timer Cranky Kong is finally coming out of retirement to join the fray.  Nintendo's new trailer shows the ape clan in action as they take on a chilly band of vikings and showcases a variety of team moves that transform all on-screen enemies into power-ups and assistance items.  Tropical Freeze looks gorgeous in motion and looks like a further evolution of what developer Retro Studios accomplished with Donkey Kong Country Returns.  It's always great to see continued development on solid ideas to make them better.  I know that sounds so simple and reasonable, but it seems so many developers are ready to remake, reboot, or abandon rather than grow and change.
