Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Yoshi's New Island, and Chibi Robo! Photo-Finder all detailed.

Posted By | On 18th, Dec. 2013

Today’s Nintendo Direct was a veritable gold mine of information on upcoming Nintendo games.

Among the new titles detailed was Retro’s upcoming Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. Hitting Wii U in February, the game, which was just confirmed to have Cranky Kong as a playable character at VGX, was now also confirmed to have Funky Kong, now taking the place of Cranky and running the shop in game. Essentially, this means that the entire cast of the original Donkey Kong Country games will be in Tropical Freeze.

Nintendo also reiterated details on the upcoming Pokemon Bank and PokeTransfer apps, announcing that anyone who uses the app before Fall 2014 will get a free Celebi. Celebi is a super rare Pokemon almost impossible to get legitimately, so that is a pretty darn tempting gift.

Nintendo also showed off more of Yoshi’s New Island, which will be launching on 3DS this Spring, and confirmed that it ill be produced by Takashi Tezuka, the creative director of the original Yoshi’s Island for SNES.

Finally, they showed off the new Chibi Robo game. Called Photo-Finder, Chibi Robo will have to help start up a new museum this time. Players are given silhouettes of needed objects, then use the Nintendo 3DS camera to find matching objects, known as NostalJunk, in the real world. A demo will be hitting the eShop soon, with a January 9, 2014 release following.
