List of extras in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
By completing certain tasks in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and its Nintendo Switch port, such as collecting Puzzle Pieces or defeating bosses, players can unlock optional content, which includes images, music and diormas accessible in their dedicated galleries. Players can find these in the "EXTRAS" section of the menu, after unlocking them. The images are artworks and sketches that show ideas proposed during the development of the game. The music gallery contains part of the game's soundtrack selection, which can be played and listened anytime from there. Dioramas and figurines are three-dimensional models of still characters and environments that can be rotated and zoomed in or out.
Below is a list of all the extras available in the game.
Funky Kong's Capsule Toy Machine vends figurines which are miniature versions of characters in the game. They are received at random, but only five figurines are possible to obtain at the beginning of the game. Defeating a boss unlocks six more figurines, and completing every level of Secret Seclusion unlocks the Professor Chops figurine.
The diorama gallery comprises elaborate models that represent the six main worlds of the game. They feature Donkey Kong and his pals, depicted in numerous poses and instances, often facing the dangers of one world. A diorama is unlocked after defeating the boss of its represented world. Like figurines, dioramas can be rotated and zoomed in or out in the gallery.
Many concept artworks depicting used and unused ideas are available in the game, and can be gradually unlocked in the Image Gallery by collecting Puzzle Pieces. Certain images, however, are only unlocked after beating the game on Hard Mode, and are the sole reward for completing this task. The Image Gallery consists of eight sub-galleries, each entirely dedicated to a world of the game, except for the seventh and eighth sub-galleries which house general concepts. Unlike in Donkey Kong Country Returns, images are not given titles.
The following table lists every concept artwork found in the game, as well as a description and the condition to unlock it. The color assigned to an image indicates to what extent the idea or ideas depicted in the image were used for the final game: green for ideas used entirely, yellow for ideas used partially, and red for completely unused ideas.
The music gallery is a collection of themes that play throughout the game, and is divided into six sets, each covering some of the music that plays in one world of the game (excluding Secret Seclusion). Each set is composed of four themes and can be unlocked by defeating the boss of its corresponding world.
