Delayed Wii U exclusive launching in late February

Nintendo has announced a Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze release date of February 21 in Europe.

The game will launch simultaneously in stores and on the eShop, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata during a Nintendo Direct livestream on Wednesday afternoon.

The latest media showcases the game's fourth playable character Cranky Kong. With Cranky now in the thick of the action, the in-game item shop will be manned by Funky Kong, Nintendo notes.

Originally scheduled for release in 2013, the Wii U exclusive game was recently given a February 21 release date in the US too. Here's a new trailer.
