A longplay of Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest.
Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest (stylized on the menu screen as "Diddy's Kong-Quest") known in Japan as Super Donkey Kong 2: Dixie & Diddy), commonly abbreviated to DKC2, is a 1995 adventure platforming video game developed by Rare and published by Nintendo for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Donkey Kong Country 2 was first released on 20 November 1995 in North America and stars Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong as the main characters of the game. Donkey Kong Country 2 is a sequel to the original Donkey Kong Country (1994) which was later followed by Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! (1996). DKC2 was later also released on the Game Boy Advance in 2004 and was until recently available for download on the Wii's Virtual Console, having become one of the most popular games of its age.
The game begins soon after Donkey Kong has been kidnapped by the prime antagonist Kaptain K. Rool, leaving Diddy and his girlfriend Dixie to rescue him. Together, the two travel to various and distinct parts of Crocodile Isle where the game is set on which there are varying worlds totalling in eight unique environments. Improved over its predecessor, DKC2 was praised for having excellent graphics, plot and characterisation and as a result DKC2 received much critical and commercial praise. Selling millions of copies worldwide on the SNES, it was the second best selling game of 1995 and the sixth best-selling game on the platform overall.
