Swing into Action - Anytime, Anywhere!
The Snowmads have taken peaceful Donkey Kong Island and turned it into a frozen fortress. Now it's up to you and the Kongs to take it back. Swing, swim, leap, and barrel-blast your way through tons of eye-popping levels to save DK Island from a permanent freeze.
Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Dixie Kong and Cranky Kong return for the franchise’s debut on Nintendo Switch! This title includes all the fun and challenge of the original game, plus a new beginner-friendly mode that lets players enjoy this critically acclaimed adventure as groovy surfing simian Funky Kong.
Meet the Kongs
Donkey Kong - This banana-loving, barrel-bashing hero is ready to take on the Snowmads - with a little help from his friends.
Diddy Kong - Diddy's back in action! This time he's helping Donkey Kong dodge obstacles with his hovering Barrel Jet and pummel foes with his Peanut Popgun
Dixie Kong - Dixie Kong can blast baddies with her Gumball Popgun, and her ponytail-whirling Helicopter Spin is just what Donkey Kong need to be lifted to safety.
Cranky Kong - Cranky Kong can use his cane to bounce on spikes and other hazards. Time his jumps just right and you can reach all-new heights. He can also take out enemies by throwing his dentures at them!
New Funky Mode
Play as Donkey Kong or that spectacular surfing simian, Funky Kong, in a more casual gaming experience. Funky Kong can double jump, hover, perform infinite rolls and even perform infinite underwater corkscrews. Thanks to his sturdy surfboard, even spikes can't slow him down. Newer players will appreciate the extra hearts and being able to get items at a discount at Funky's Fly 'n' Buy, while speedrunners will love blasting through levels on Funky's surfboard at a blistering pace!
Go Bananas with a Buddy
Whether you're playing Original or Funky Mode, you and a friend can team up and take on the Snowmads side by side. Each player can use a single Joy-Con controller, or the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller (sold seperately). Player 1 controls Donkey Kong or Funky Kong while Player 2 controls one of their pals - Diddy, Cranky or Dixie - and their special moves.
