Nintendo's Wii U was host to some damned good games - but the system was a bit of a failure.

This won't come as a total surprise since we saw his Rabbid counterpart previous year, but now we have our first look at what Donkey Kong - the regular, non-Rabbid form - looks like in Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle. Funky Kong can double jump, hover, perform infinite rolls and even perform infinite underwater corkscrews.

Set to launch on May 4 exclusively for Nintendo's hybrid console, Tropical Freeze will feature the original game alongside some nifty new content. We'll have more information for you when it's available, but in the meantime, keep your fingers crossed for more ports of classic Donkey Kong and Zelda games.
