Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze gets swept up in a launch trailer

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze arrives next weekend and Nintendo thrown everything and the kitchen sink into one last trailer. Revealed at today's Nintendo Direct, the game's launch trailer shows off some more of the game's environments and its many, many, many obstacles, most of which will probably kill you.

Among the items shown off are more silhouetted-style stages, stages mired deep in sandstorms and active tornadoes, underwater madness that includes a giant squid striking from the background, mine cart levels that shift from 2D to top-down view at a moment's notice, and an assembly of sinister owls that smash helpless bananas!

If this trailer and our recent preview are any indication, Tropical Freeze will offer some of the series' most intense challenges to date. The Kong clan's latest adventure hits Wii U on February 21.
