The similar sounds, some same graphics, and what-not.
I never got why though, when DKC 2 came out it had different sounds from the first game.
(don't get me wrong, DKC 3 might be my favorite of the trilogy, but I'm just abit interested)

I was interested in 2010, I found out that there is actually strings from DKC2 in DKC3's code, DKC3 is built off of DKC2.

Take a look at this topic I made a few years ago for more information... viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1017

You know what else they borrowed? The background from DKC1's forest levels. The background of DKC3's jungle levels is the background of DKC's forest levels.

See for yourself:

Are you sure that's not just Qyzbud getting creative or a site bug?

Quick question: how much were these games at release in the US?
