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.

Our Verdict

Drew Navarre
Name's Drew. Currently making my way through Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time series and waiting for The Winds of Winter (A Song of Ice and Fire 6). I'm a subscriber to Archie Comics' Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic Universe, and Mega Man and I read Superior Spider-man when I can. I'm a pretty big Nintendo fan, but enjoy the other companies as well. As it stands, I have a Wii U and a new gaming desktop (3.5ghz processor, 2GB video card, 8GB RAM with support for 32GB) and plan on getting a PS4 in 2014. As for Xbox One, we'll see, but I'm sure I'll add it eventually.
