In this morning’s Nintendo Direct, the Big N disappointed fans with the announcement that Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is no longer going to see a North America release in December 2013. The game is now not planned to release until February 2014.
With the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 looming large this holiday season, it’s not hard to see that this will be a blow for Nintendo, who was no doubt relying on games such as Tropical Freeze to sell Wii U’s in the coming months. Furthermore, by releasing the game just after the holidays, the sales will probably not be as good as they would be otherwise.
