Joining the lineup of Wii U games receiving enhanced ports to the Nintendo Switch is Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, which comes with a new game mode that will bring together the Kong family like never before. The surprise January Mini Direct highlighted the second coming of Kong touting a brand new feature in the form of “Funky Mode,” with Funky Kong himself becoming a playable character with superior skills compared to DK.

If you’ve been itching to scratch that Funky itch, then you’re in luck. New footage of the game surfaced by way of Dutch Comic Con 2018, and you can see the funktastic ape in action for yourself above! The video is unfortunately filmed off of the hybrid system’s Handheld mode, but there are some minor upgrades to be spotted in the base game itself, chief among them faster loading times compared to its Wii U predecessor.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze banana slamma’s onto Nintendo Switch on May 4, 2018.
