News that Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze's release has been pushed back to February came courtesy of today's Nintendo Direct.

The game was supposed to launch in December 2013, but Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata announced that it would be delayed to February 2014 to ensure that they make the best product possible.

This new entry in the series will be released on the Wii U and will become the first Donkey Kong Country game to be in HD. The story will feature Donkey Kong and the crew (or is it krew?), fighting a bunch of Viking-like critters who have invaded their homes. Tropical Freeze will also mark the return of Dixie Kong, a character who hasn't been seen since Donkey Kong Country 3.

We'll let you know if more information about this title is released. Until then, we'll just have to wait a few more months to get our Donkey Kong on.
