Donkey Kong Country 2 Virtual Boy

Setting their sights on three-dimensions with Nintendo's Virtual Boy, Rare began to convert Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest to function on the monocromatic handheld device. Offering a new depth of field, Donkey Kong Country 2 Virtual Boy would have remained faithful to its SNES roots while innovating with 3D experiences wherever possible. Unfortunately the low sales and short-sightedness of the Virtual Boy left the red and black rendition of Diddy's epic quest without much financial viability, leaving it to be swiftly cancelled after a few weeks of development.
