Cranky Kong brandishes cane, joins Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze roster on February 21

Following Amazon Italy's slip up with its box art for Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, as reported by Gematsu, Cranky Kong was confirmed to be the game's fourth playable character during Spike's VGX show. Demo footage depicted Cranky Kong attacking spiked enemies with his cane and bouncing across pointy sections of levels (hello, Bramble Scramble).

Tropical Freeze's February release window has also been clarified - Donkey Kong and friends will start mauling wildlife for bananas on February 21.
