New Releases: Week of April 29, 2018


Hopefully May will actually bring us some spring in New England. I finally deemed April 29th safe to take the snow tires off my car. If you have spring allergies and would still rather stay inside here’s a run down of the games coming out this week.

Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze

Release Date: May 4, 2018

Platforms: NS


This year Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze was the game I was most asked if I checked out at PAX. My answer was no because I played it on the WiiU and I hate lines! I did buy a Cranky Kong action figure there though if that makes people feel better. Anyway it was fun on the WiiU and I’m sure it will be even more so on the Switch. New in this version is for the first time ever you can play as Funky Kong.
