Donkey Kong Land 2 was the 1996 sequel to the Game Boy hit, Donkey Kong Land. The game was later followed by Donkey Kong Land III. Produced by Rareware and published by Nintendo, it was enhanced for the Super Game Boy with different shades of color, as well as a 16-bit banana border on the edges of the television screen. Like the original, it came packaged in a banana-yellow cartridge. Donkey Kong Land 2 received a 79% at GameRankings.
Donkey Kong Land 2 was in some ways a remake of the Super Nintendo smash hit, Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. It starred Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong as they set off to rescue Donkey Kong from Captain K. Rool and the Kremling Krew. While it featured the same level names as Donkey Kong Country 2 (except for Castle Crush, changed to Dungeon Danger; and Haunted Hall, changed to Krazy Koaster), the level layouts were brand new, as well as some of the maps.
Donkey Kong Land 2 had the same storyline from Donkey Kong Country 2. The manual contains a simplified version of the story from its SNES counterpart - K. Rool has kidnapped Donkey Kong and is at Crocodile Isle, and it's up to Diddy and Dixie to save him.
