Like the other Kongs, Cranky Kong will play differently allowing for levels designed to his abilities. Channeling his inner Scrooge McDuck, Cranky will be able to use his cane to pogo across spikes and reach high areas. This ability will let him grab puzzle pieces that other Kongs won’t be able to grab safely.

Spike will be streaming their video game awards, now called VGX, on December 7, 2013 and Reggie Fils-Aime will be one of their guests. During an appearance with Geoff Keighley on GameTrailers, Reggie teased a possible appearance on the upcoming VGX awards. Now we have official word that Reggie will indeed be at the awards this Saturday to give gamers a “new look at an upcoming Wii U game.”
Spike’s video game awards are known for showcasing exclusive, worldwide premieres, so naturally speculation is at an all time high. My bets are on a new Super Smash Bros. trailer with new character reveals, but I guess it’s possible that Nintendo will show Zelda U… nah.
