Game Overview

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is a platform game developed by Retro Studios for Wii U. It is the fifth installment in the Donkey Kong Country series and the first entry in the series to be truly HD. It was released worldwide in February of 2014.

In this entry, Vikings from the north have invaded Donkey Kong Country and it's up to Donkey Kong to fight them off or find another island. The game will feature two player co-op with the other player taking the role of either Diddy Kong, Dixie Kong or Cranky Kong.

this game actually did pretty well,
considering what it is is a fairly
hardcore 2d platformer. 1.5m+ lifetime
for sure, so it'll at least track with
the sales of the 3ds port of returns,
which isn't bad at all.

Only 10k until 1m! Come on DK, you can
do it!

@Salnax keep in mind your looking at an
install base of 9 million vs 101

Tropical Freeze's sales have
been a bit disappointing, especially
compared to DKCR, but do note that it is
critically the worst-received game from
the developer. I expect it to sell
somewhere between 1.2 and 1.6 million at
retail lifetime, likely ahead of MP2.
Not as bad as it could have been.
