Diddy’s Fur Was a Lie?! Talking DKC2 Tech, Pirates, & Dixie with OG Staff! (25th Anniversary)

27

It’s Donkey Kong Country 2’s 25th anniversary tomorrow! And to kick-off our celebration, we interviewed character designer Steve Mayles, and lead programmer, Chris Sutherland, to learn some behind-the-scenes details on the game, including graphical improvements, animating Dixie’s hair, the care that went into animating Pirate Hooks, why Winky was replaced and more, Dixie’s original name, and why the fur seen in the marketing didn’t make the (hair)cut!
