Issue 79 — May 6, 2018
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

Hi, here's issue #79 of Switch Weekly with all the Switch links that are worth your time.

I've been at a friends wedding this weekend, so haven't had much chance to play my Switch lately. I'm looking forward to picking it up and maybe dipping into Donkey Kong - reviews seem good, and I never got round to playing it on the Wii U. Let me know if you're gonna grab it!

Anyway, thanks for reading, enjoy the issue and catch you next week,
Cheers, Chris.
