Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, known in Japan as Super Donkey Kong 2, is a video game made for Nintendo's Super Nintendo Entertainment System (Super Famicom in Japan) video game console. It was released in 1995 as a sequel to Donkey Kong Country, developed by Rare Ltd. and published by Nintendo.
In this game, Diddy Kong and his girlfriend Dixie Kong have to save Donkey Kong from Kaptain K. Rool, who was called King K. Rool in the previous game. It has a slightly more pirateish theme than the first, and included many new features like the ability to transform into various helpful animals. (While the first game included the animals, one rode them rather than became them.) This game features not only the return of familiar characters like Cranky Kong and Funky Kong but also introduces Wrinkly Kong, Cranky's Wife, and Swanky Kong. The game was the first of the Donkey Kong series to include a "secret" world, as well.
In 2004, a Game Boy Advance port was released. The game included new features such as mini-games, a new boss by the name of Kerozene, and the insertion of characters (Expresso the Ostrich , Candy Kong, and Tiny Kong) that didn't originally appear in the original.
