Ice to Meet You: Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze Gets a TV Commercial

Alright, that’s the second of 487 Batman & Robin Mr. Freeze puns I plan to use when talking about this game. The release of Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze grows ever more imminent as evidenced by the TV commercial for the game that appeared today. The spot is a bit over thirty seconds and features a father and son who spot an army of invading viking penguins landing on shore. Thankfully, their invasion is stopped by (spoiler alert) three of our favorite Kongs — Donkey, Diddy and Cranky. About 7 seconds of gameplay proceeds the live action/CGI footage.

For a commercial obviously aimed at kids, it seems to get the job done and is reminiscent of spots from the late ’90s. Check it out below:
