As times change so too do handhelds. I remember a time when my 3DS and I were inseparable, but now it feels like the Switch is my go-to gaming hub. I’m not the only one though, and it looks like DK himself picked up a new toy.


Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze has seen an update in DK’s idle animation, shelving the 3DS XL and instead bringing on the Joy-Con. It’s a great update to a great easter egg, and it has me excited to try this out with the other Kongs, including the all new Funky.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
