On the 20th of November, Donkey Kong Country 2 turned 20 years old. To celebrate this anniversary, designer Gregg Mayles shared a ton of his original sketches from when he was designing the game. The sketches show cut content that never made it to the final game, including level ideas, banana animals, characters hat logos, Cranky dialogue, and bosses. He also showed off the original sketches of level designs such as Toxic Tower, Bramble Scramble, Rickety Race, and Rambi Rumble.
