What other port of a title for Wii U would you like to see on the hybrid console? Did you miss the game the first time around?

We learned today that Nintendo is going to continue this trend of porting old Wii U games over to the Switch, as it announced two more games today during its Direct Mini broadcast.

There won't be almost as many bonuses with the port of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, though we will get to play as Funky Kong in a new game mode.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle introduces a new playable hero, Donkey Kong, in upcoming downloadable content. Donkey Kong will be featured in an original story, taking place in a new world.

John said, "On the campaign trail I've collected complements about CBS This Morning's commitment to the news for years now". Dickerson joined CBS News in April 2009 as an analyst and contributor to all of the network's broadcasts and platforms.

With a tentative date of "spring", Donkey Kong will swing into the craziness of Mario + Rabbid: Kingdom Battle only on the Nintendo Switch.

Plus, it means that Retro Studios is likely hard at work on a new game.

'Donkey Kong's latest adventure is a slick, good-looking and demanding 2D platformer that works like a trooper to keep you entertained.

Originally released on the Wii U, the game lets players team up with buddies to master their moves, from Diddy Kong and his jet pack to the fresh addition of Dixie Kong and her spinning ponytail.
