Coffee Shop! Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Wii U sale!


Coffee Shop
Good morning! I hope this post finds you well, perhaps even enjoying a cup of coffee. It's a new week, and almost a new month! Where have I (Coffee) disappeared to the last few months? Well, that might be a story for another day...

Today, I wanted to let fellow Wii U owners know that Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (DKCTF) is on sale! Barely a month after it released, the game is already discounted 20% off its MSRP at two retailers.

You can pick up a copy of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for the Wii U from Best Buy (HERE) and Amazon.com (HERE) this week for just $39.99. Both sites include "Free Shipping" with the sale price, but with Best Buy you also have the option of checking your local store(s) to see if you can pick it up today if you want.

You can click the links above, or below, to be redirected to the appropriate pages to buy it:
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is on sale at Best Buy for $39.99.
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is on sale on Amazon.com for $39.99.

I did a plethora of Nintendo Channel data stories on Donkey Kong Country Returns (see: hereherehereherehere, & here), and even one on the Wii's Virtual Console Donkey Kong Country SNES titles over the years. If you own a Wii, but not a Wii U, I would highly recommend picking up Donkey Kong Country Returns and giving it a try, especially if you enjoyed any of the older SNES titles in the series.

Question
If you have played Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (I haven't), would you recommend it to Wii U owners that might not be familiar with the "Donkey Kong Country" line of games?

Also, if you have played and beaten DKCTF, how many hours did it take you?

  1. Like I need more temptation to buy another WiiU game... That seems like a good price and even a bit surprising dropping so quick. Though even AC:NL dipped temporarily by $10 about 10 days after release on amazon.

    I was interested in the Wii and 3ds versions, but never pulled the trigger and time has passed. Trop freeze seems like a good time to jump in despite the lack of portability. Not sure that I'm going to buy now, but it's on my list.

  2. Just trying to help keep you incomplete. :)


    Being that we have DCKR on the Wii and thoroughly enjoyed it, and Bean 1 has a 2DS, the thought of picking the 3DS one up did cross my mind once. But, it quickly left when my cheap genes kicked in.

  3. That Coffee fella - always willing to 'help' you stay incomplete, no? :)


    This is sort of a tough one. I'm sure it's a good game, but I am just not a big platformer. The price is certainly right, especially so recently after its release, but I think there's just some other games I'd rather be focusing on for now.

  4. Yep, that coffee feller is real helpful. Just when I think my budget is safe..... :)


    Am a pretty big fan of platformers and while there is certainly a 'cheapo balance' to be had with buying older games, I may look at this one in a few months.


    That should be plenty of time for me to abandon the current WiiU games I've half-started.

  5. ROFL - so question is - what have you been half-playing latey? :)

  6. Ha, been playing about half of everything. Everything WiiU that is.

    If coffee would get a monthly roll call post we would all be up to date....

  7. Not a bad list. I admit that of my newer consoles, my Wii U is probably the most neglected of late - though I spent a heap of time playing my 3DS and Bravely Default, so that counts for something, right?
    The Wii U is in almost constant use - mostly from my youngest and Windwaker.

  8. @Robert Hey, I may get around to another monthly roll call eventually...................................................


    Probably once I delete enough HDD space, to make some slight edits to a recent BO2 match I played.


    @Chalgyr Curious, does your youngest play the game using Off-TV Play, or with the TV? Bean 1 uses the GamePad quite often now while drawing maps, and Bean 2 is usually watching something on Netflix on the TV. Well, Netflix is playing something, he may be running around not necessarily watching it.

  9. Your comment on your kids? Pretty much a carbon copy of what I see. So my youngest (who we nickname Gillybean - sounds like she'd fit right in with your Beans) is usually doing the off-tv play. Last night was a perfect example. She was playing Windwaker on the couch using headphones while my wife and oldest were watching Netflix on the PS3 on the tv.

  12. To be frank, I couldn't stick with it. The music was compelling, for sure, and Retro clearly put a lot into this game, but something was missing for me. I just couldn't be arsed to get further into it than world 2 or 3 or so. I'd rather be playing SM3DW or UnEpic on my Wii U, at least when I'm not accompanied by someone who's more of a DKC enthusiast. Now that I've said that though, I'll probably revisit it to see if I can make some progress, now that I've just completed Shovel Knight.

    I'm not the kind of person to ask for "online-multiplayer" or "Cross-chat" or whatever the popular Nintendo complaint is this week. There are plenty of Wii U games that do everything right without those things.

    are entertaining after
    a day of hard work.
