- Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze made the jump to Switch four years after its release on Wii U. The Switch port added an entirely new way to play in Funky Mode, a properly balanced mode that made levels more accessible without feeling too easy.
Additionally, unlike a number of entries on this list, the Tropical Freeze port is a visual improvement over the original. Games ported over from PC, Xbox One, and PS4 naturally experience some level of downgrade on Switch, but Tropical Freeze makes the jump from the technically inferior Wii U. According to Digital Foundry, Switch bumps the resolution up from 720p to 1080p when docked. The fluidity of the “excellent animation” is also mentioned in IGN’s Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for Switch review.
