Nintendo has released a new trailer for Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze which shows off Dixie Kong, who was introduced in the third entry in the series and is making a return after an extended absence. Her pony tail can be used to whip enemies, allow DK to jump a little higher than normal and also glide. It appears she will play the same role as Diddy in that she will mostly be used as an accessory rather than a playable character in single player. Of course, when playing co-op with a friend, she and Diddy will both be playable characters.

The trailer shows off a some new environments including a few stages that feature minecarts as well as the controversial barrel rockets that players either love or hate. Just a reminder: the game has been delayed until February of 2014. Video after the break.
